GENERAL GUIDELINES

Introduction

NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and science. NPTEL provides E-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Science and Humanities streams.

NPTEL Online Certification Courses

NPTEL is now offering online certification courses through its portal https://swayam.gov.in/nc_details/NPTEL There are 4wk, 8wk set 1 and 2 as well as 12wk courses.

Course Enrollment

Certification Exam

Course List

Around 590+ courses are available for the Jan-Apr 2022 semester.

Course List

How many exams can one write this semester?

One may write up to a maximum of 6 exams.

2 exams on each day

Exams can be written in either or both shifts (9am to 12pm; 2pm to 5pm) on all these exam dates.

Can I enroll in courses using different email ids?

No. It is advisable to use the same email id while enrolling in multiple courses.

Candidates should use the same email id throughout the course run; for enrolling to course(s) and for registering for the exam(s).

Assignments submitted using any other email id will not be taken into consideration towards final consolidated score & certification.

The responsibility of the email id being valid till the course run is over lies with the candidates.

The same email id has to be used while registering for exams also.

Else, during exam city allocation, chances are that you may be randomly allocated to different exam cities, if you are writing multiple exams using multiple email ids.

Eligibility to register for exams

Eligibility to appear at the exams

Guidelines regarding upload of photos in the exam registration form

The photo uploaded in the exam form will be displayed in your hall ticket as well as the course certificate.

It is very clearly mentioned in the exam registration form as to what type of photo is acceptable.

Exam registration will be cancelled if the candidate does not upload a photo matching the given specifications.

In such cases where the candidate’s exam is cancelled, exam fee will not be refunded.

Please be advised that candidates need to strictly adhere to the instructions given.

Guidelines regarding upload of SC/ST & PwD Certificates in the exam registration form (wherever applicable)

Candidates are expected to upload a valid SC/ST and/or PwD certificate in the exam form.

Norms for the above are very clearly mentioned in the exam registration form.

Exam registration will be cancelled if the candidate does not upload a valid certificate(s).

In such cases where the candidate’s exam is cancelled, exam fee will not be refunded.

Please be advised that candidates need to strictly adhere to the instructions given.

Admit Card (Hall Ticket)
The link to download hall tickets for NPTEL exams will be available on NPTEL website. Candidates can download their Admit Card from the website. No printed copy of the Admit Cards will be posted to the candidates. The candidate has to appear at the NPTEL designated Examination Centre to write the exam on the date and time specified in the Admit Card.

Exam City/Centre / Exam Session Change Request
No request for any changes in the Centre or Date/Time specified in the Admit Card will be entertained.
Due to operational constraints, NPTEL reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be from any of the choices selected by the candidate.

What NOT to bring during exam

Physical calculators, mobile phones and wristwatches are strictly prohibited and candidates possessing these in the examination hall (even if not using) will be disqualified. An on-screen calculator will be provided during the exam.

No snacks or water will be allowed to be taken inside the hall.

Reporting Errors

Exam scores will be published as and when they are signed off by the concerned course instructor. Once scores and e-certificates are released, candidates are notified by email and/or sms. Candidates are given 6 days to verify the scores and report errors, if any.

If the candidate comes across any errors related to their personal data and wants the certificate to be "modified", he/she has to pay Rs. 200 to NPTEL.

Go Green

NPTEL supports the "Go green" initiative.

We will be publishing only e-certificates.

Hard copies of course certificates will not be printed.

Supplementary Exams

NPTEL WILL NOT conduct supplementary exams. The college may look into creating a question paper using already published Assignments for the particular course and grade it. This can perhaps be considered for the supplementary exam. In this case, NPTEL will not be issuing certificates for these students.

NPTEL Coordinators decision is final

In all matters concerning the exams, the decision taken by NPTEL Coordinators will be final and binding on all the applicants.

IMPORTANT

  1. NPTEL routinely sends email notifications to all candidates (to their registered email id) regarding any new developments with respect to extension of deadlines, other announcements, etc. Candidates are expected to check emails on a regular basis.  We also suggest that you check your inbox and spam/junk boxes for emails. The consequences of neglecting NPTEL email notifications will have to be borne by the candidate.

  1. The deadlines given here will be strictly adhered to. Candidates are advised to keep visiting NPTEL portal for regular updates on schedule of events in case of any unexpected natural/national situations.

  1. Delays or disruptions in service due to breakdown of NPTEL computer servers (due to reasons beyond the control of NPTEL) shall be rectified as early as possible and notified on NPTEL portal. The decisions of NPTEL Coordinators in this regard shall be final and binding.

  1. Exams will be conducted based on prevalent guidelines issued by the government.
