From the percentage gained, you can get the attendance marks using the table mentioned in the previous topic. As per the above given example, the attendance percentage is 90.1.

That is, the overall internal mark is equal to the sum of the attendance percentage and internal exam marks. That is,

Overall Internal Mark = Internal Mark for Attendance Percentage + Internal Mark for Academic Performance

What is the pass mark for Anna University semester Exam?

To clear a semester exam a student must score at least 50% of marks in total of external and internal. The Students of Anna University write the external exams for 100 marks, which is later converted to 80. The remaining 20 mark is added from the internals. In regards to external marks, a student should sore at least 45 marks to get a pass. Also there is no pass mark for internal exam, but it is noted that a minimum of 14 marks in internal will help the student immensely to upgrade their score in external exam.

For example let us assume a student scored the minimum pass mark i.e. 45 marks out of 100 in external and 5 mark out of 20 in internal exam. While converting the external mark to 80, 45 will become 36. Now if we add both the marks the final score would be 41, which is a fail. So in this case if a student has the minimum of 14 marks as the internal mark, then his/her final sore would be 36+14 i.e.50, which is a pass. Thus internal marks play a significant role in upgrading the students score in the semester exam.
