Let us discuss Percentage of Marks You Need To Maintain In M. Pharm Course: First of all let us gather some general idea about the degree course of Master of Pharmacy (M. Pharm). It is a 2 year post graduate course that trains the students imparting the knowledge of practical aspects of topics like industrial operations, instrumental techniques, research methodologies and emerging areas. In order to take admission to an M. Pharm course, you should have a B. Pharm degree from a PCI-approved institute and should have scored at least 55% marks over the 4 years of the graduate course. In M. Pharm course too, at the end of every semester candidates are to appear for examinations. At the end of last semester, the candidates also need to submit thesis. It offers specializations in subjects for which Post-graduate degree in pharmacy can be awarded by the Indian universities are as below:-

The academic semester shall consist of a minimum of 15 weeks or tentative 90 instructional days. A minimum of 75% attendance in the theory and practical of each subject is compulsory for appearing at the external (university) examination. Now to clear the examination paper of any subject, candidates must obtain at least 40 percentage of the marks (including sessional marks) in theory and practical separately in each subject and in addition must obtain at least 50 percentage of the total marks (including sessional marks) assigned to the subject examination. To pass a subject, a candidate must appear in theory and practical at a time. For each internal (sessional) examination Twenty (20) marks shall be allotted and Eighty (80) marks for external (university) examination in theory and/or practical of each subject. The internal (sessional) marks in practical are allotted based on the actual performance in one internal (sessional) examination of 10 marks and attendance record, conduct, practical performance, laboratory records, viva, inclusive of another 10 marks. On the basis of average of all semester leading to award of the degree of M.Pharm the classes of percentage are determined. Percentage to be awarded is 70% or more for First class with Distinction. For percentage of 60% or more, but less than 70% the student gets First class and for 50% or more, but less than 60% it will be Second class. For the percentage below 50% are considered as Pass class.
Thus to maintain the M.Pharm course 50% of the marks are necessary. It’s obvious for a candidate to score high in the M.Pharm degree the students must work hard as it is a higher degree and it requires knowledge to become an expertise.
