It is mandatory for students to fulfill the minimum requirement to be eligible to sit in the examination, on the following criteria.
Students Performance
Assessment/ Evaluation
Evaluation is an ongoing process, comprising of continuous assessment test (CAT), end of module examinations, and annual/ professional university examinations. Credit from continuous assessments contributes towards the final performance in professional examination. The assessment process is designed to achieve the instructional objectives.

To evaluate student’s knowledge, skill and attitudes multiple assessment methods are used, including short answer questions (SAO), MCQs, OSPE, OSCE and oral examination. In line with the PMDC stipulation, the minimum pass level for all tests and examinations is 50%. (fifty percent)

SSCMS evaluation system encourages each student to create personal standards of excellence. Students who fail to achieve the criteria are helped by remedial coaching and by the subject expert of the specific field and if deemed necessary faculty members from other institutes or university are also called upon for the encouragement and enhancement of their skills in line with minimum standards required for the degree program.

Mandatory student attendance requirement of 75% at least is needed for sitting in the annual university examination. However, persistent unsatisfactory performance or chronic absenteeism could lead to withdrawal of the student from the college.
