8). Those who did anything against the law or regulations will be refused to resume study in NSMU and will be rusticated.
Those who have passed all the required and selective subjects as defined by the teaching syllabus will be promoted.
Demotion process will be carried out at the beginning of each semester.
1). A student who failed in the make-up examinations of four subjects or more, or failed in the restudy examinations of two or more subjects in one academic year will be demoted to a lower grade.
2). If one subject is taught in two or more semesters, it is still considered as one subject.
3). First year students failing in the make-up tests of four subjects or failed in the restudy of two subjects in the first semester are allowed to sit in the same class and will be given another chance to sit in the make-up tests by the end of the second semester. Failing again in make–up test and the number of subjects failed sum up to three subjects or two major subjects, will result in demotion to a lower grade.
