Dr. R. Muthukumaran, M.A.,M.Phil.,B.Ed.,Ph.D.,

Controller Of Examinations

With a humble beginning as a pre-university college on the auspicious 12th July 1957, NGM College has over the last six decades blossomed into a premier post graduate teaching and research institution in Tamilnadu, attaining the coveted Autonomous status in 1987. It is a co-educational ISO 9001-2008 certified, UGC & AICTE recognized institution, affiliated to Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. In 2007, it was one of the 7 institutions in Tamilnadu to be accredited with ‘A’ Grade by NAAC in 2003.

With the advent of autonomy, it became incumbent on the institution to assume many of the responsibilities and functions of a typical university. Consequently, a few academic bodies had to be set up: one of them was the office of COE. To manage all matters relating to the Examination System, a separate body called the Examination Office under the control of a  CONTROLLER OF EXAMINATIONS has been constituted.

The Examination Office consists of a  Controller of Examinations, One deputy Controller of Examinations, One Office Superintendent, One Software Developer,  7 Clerk-cum-computer operators and two Office Assistants. The Examination Office is now functioning in a centrally located building in the College Campus.

The Examination Office is equipped with one Hi-tech IBM Server One ultra fast line Printer, 1 Epson Scanner and 12 Computers, 2 Digital Copy Printers, 2 Copier Machines, and two intercom phone lines, and One Separate Landline Phone.


Since its inception in 1987 COE’s office was headed by Dr. K. A. Gundu Rao, who had just retired as HOD of Physics in 1992. Dr. Gundu Rao was succeeded by Dr. V. Radhakrishnan and then he was succeeded by Dr. R. Muthukumaran HOD of History has been serving in this college for the past 22 years. Dr.R. Muthukumaran has been working as the COE since 2016.

Choice Based Credit System

When we were conferred with Autonomy in 1987 by UGC, a novel component, popularly called Choice Based Additional Subjects (CBAS) as part IV was introduced in UG Programmes. Under the system, the students were required to select and study 4 extra disciplinary subjects from a group of 20 subjects. This component has been highly commended and appreciated by every quarter of higher education including students, parents, faculty, university and UGC.

Now, we have replaced CBAS by introducing another major innovation in the UG and PG curriculum in the name of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) to meet the emerging challenges in the context of fast changing market requirements, quality enhancement and globalization.
