Duration of the Course
The duration of ‘A’ level Course in Information Technology is 1590 hours including 390 hours of projects. The minimum period to cover contents of ‘A’ Level Course in Information Technology is one and half years. The minimum period to cover contents of ‘A’ Level course in Information Technology is one year for those candidates who register themselves in ‘A’ Level course in Information Technology after passing ‘O’ Level (IT).
The students have to devote 60%of the total time allotted to each module of the course for the practical sessions.
The candidates are allowed to improve his/her grade in one subject immediately after clearing all the theory papers (immediate to last examination where the candidate has cleared his/her last paper).
The candidate registered in ‘A’ Level in Information Technology (IT) under DOEACC Scheme is required to submit two projects, one mini project and second major project. Guidelines to submit the Mini project are given in Information Brochure cum Syllabus booklet of ‘O’ Level (IT) –Revision V under DOEACC Scheme.
NIELIT curriculum has a Major project as an important component of ‘A’ Level course in Information Technology. The Project is carried out by the student under guidance and support of faculty and management of the respective institute. It is felt that such a project provides an opportunity to the student to apply his/her knowledge and skills to real life problems (including oral and written communication skills), and as such the project should be given utmost importance and priority both by the students as well as institution faculty / management in respect of its identification, planning and implementation.
