c) If a candidate fails to submit the report on project work on or before the date specified by the college / department, he/she is deemed to have failed in the project work and awarded grade F.
d) If a candidate fails to appear for the viva-voce examination after submitting the report on project work on the date specified by the college / department, he/she will be marked as absent for the project work.
