The students of NGM are categorized into A, B and C streams immediately after their entry into the College. ABC categorization is primarily done based on their previous and present academic performance along with other parameters of evaluation taken up by the faculty. This methodology is to vouch for the cause of students in elevating them to higher and performers by precisely honing their talents and nurturing them for a brilliant career and meaningful life. The wards are persistently monitored and evaluated by the teachers at the end of every semester.
Based on their performance, Departments resort to corrective measures. Slow learners are particularly taken care of and support is extended to them to raise to the next higher stratum of categorization. The evaluators consider students with less than 50 marks as ‘C’ category and those between 50 and 74 marks as ‘B’ category and ‘A’ category students are those with 75 / 100 marks.
It is the solemn resolve and vision of the Management and Teachers to guide the students to reach higher levels of categorization. In this novel method, a teacher understands his/her wards holistically and works towards her/his upliftment. This exercise has paid rich dividends in the overall academic performance of the College.
