Modular credits (MCs) will be awarded upon completion of the lab rotation which last for 3 months. The MCs obtained clock to NGS coursework requirements. At the end of the lab rotation, student’s performance in the lab will be assessed by the lab supervisor, using a prescribed form prepared by NGS. Additionally student has to submit a lab rotation report to detail what he has achieved from the lab rotation and how the techniques learnt are beneficial to his area of research. One of the NGS EXCO will endorse/approve the award of the grade upon the submission of the necessary documents. A ‘Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory’ grade is awarded on the basis of attendance, submission of an evaluation report and satisfactory performance rated by the lab coordinator.
