How many subjects can you drop?

IP University grants credit on passing every paper and depending upon the paper, and the credit may range from 2-4 per paper. Every student has to earn the minimum required credits to become eligible for the award of the degree.

For example, most of the 3 years undergraduate courses (like BBA, BCA, B.Com, B.Voc, and BA) you need to earn 150 credits out of 160 for the award of the degree which means you can drop 2 subjects with 4 credits each and 2 practicals with 2 credits each.

Pros and Cons of dropping the subject:


  • On dropping the subject(s), the percentage will be affected as the percentage will be computed on the basis of all the subjects, but the marks of the dropped the subject (s) will not be included.
  • Exempted will be written instead of the drop or 0 in the consolidated marksheet.


  • You can take admission or job in any firm as it won’t affect your degree/marksheet.
  • You can save your time instead of rewriting the paper again and again.
