Dear Student,
We hope you are familiar with the system of evaluation to be followed for the Bachelor’s Degree Programme. At this stage you may probably like to re-read the section on assignments for Elective Courses in the Programme Guide that we sent you after your enrolment. A weightage of 30 per cent, as you are aware, has been earmarked for continuous evaluation which would consist of one tutor-marked assignment (TMA) for this course.

Instructions for Formatting Your Assignments
Before attempting the assignment please read the following instructions carefully. 1)

On top of the first page of your TMA answer sheet, please write the details exactly in the following format:
ENROLMENT NO.: …………………………………………… NAME : ………………………………………………………… ADDRESS …………………………………………………….. ………………………………………………………

COURSE CODE : …………………………….
COURSE TITLE : …………………………….
ASSIGNMENT NO.: ………………………….…
STUDY CENTRE : ………………………..…..

DATE: ……………………………...

PLEASE FOLLOW THE ABOVE FORMAT STRICTLY TO FACILITATE EVALUATION AND TO AVOID DELAY.

Use only foolscap size writing paper (but not of very thin variety) for writing your answers. Leave 4 cm margin on the left, top and bottom of your answer sheet. Your answers should be precise.
While solving problems, clearly indicate the question number along with the part being solved. Be precise. Write units at each step of your calculations as done in the text because marks will be deducted for such mistakes. Take care of significant digits in your work. Recheck your work before submitting it.

6) This assignment will remain valid for one year from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. However, you are advised to submit it within 12 weeks of receiving this booklet to accomplish its purpose as a teaching-tool. Answer sheets received after the due date shall not be accepted.

We strongly feel that you should retain a copy of your assignment response to avoid any unforeseen situation and append, if possible, a photocopy of this booklet with your response. We wish you good luck!
