* These charts displays the percentage variation in B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) and M.A. (Master of Arts). Almost all the students, except for one in each batch, displayed good improvement in thier University examination. These real examinations (and not the faked one like pre-post-tests) are used as substantial proof to prove that students show remarkable improvement in their learning capacities when face to face teaching is blended with technology based learning.
* In the below given chart (Batch 2010-12), we can see that the percentage of only one student decreased as compared to that of BA. The green bars reflects the percentage of MA and blue that of BA.
