Dear Student,

This booklet contains the assignments for the DCLE (G) 4 th Semester for the courses of BCE-024, BCE-034, BCE-041, BCE-044 and BCE-046. Before attempting the assignments, please carefully read the instructions given in Programme Guide of DCLE (G) Programme. Each course (e.g. BCE 024 and BCE 044, etc.) has one assignment, which is based on course materials of these courses. You are also advised to write your responses in your own words. This will improve your comprehension skills. Further, you may note that in case your assignment response(s) happens to be a copy of assignment response sheet submitted by another student, your assignment may be summarily rejected by the Coordinator/ Programme In-charge/Course Counsellor of your Study Centre/Programme Study Centre and/or your marks may be made null and void. Therefore, you are strongly advised not to allow any other student to copy it. The last date of submission of assignment is given against each assignment. You are advised not to wait for the last date to submit your assignments. Therefore, you may note that the assignment answer sheets received after the due date will be summarily rejected and no communication will be entertained in this regard.

You have to submit/send your assignment answer sheets to the Coordinator/Programme In-charge of your Study Centre/Programme Centre, as the case may be so as to reach there on or before the due date.
