  • Examination System

The Madura College (Autonomous) is one of the very first Autonomous Colleges in India when Autonomy, as a concept, was conceived by the University Grants Commission in 1978. The Examination Section (Office of the Controller of Examinations), in its four decades of existence, has been the heart and brain of the conduct of Semester Examinations of our college. The Examination System has adapted itself to the need of the hour on every occasion in its history. Examination Reforms workshops are conducted frequently to discuss the need for any change in policy related to the conduct of Examinations. Such reforms are brought as resolutions in the Academic Council and adopted after detailed discussion.
