In the course of teaching process during regular class lectures, slow learners and under achievers are identified. The head and the professor in charge of the departments keep a record of the academically poor students. The Vice-Principals and the Dean’s office regularly interact with the parents of the students. Remedial classes are organized on Saturdays to meet the needs of the weaker students. The HOD’s and the professor in charge of the department have been given the
responsibility of addressing the problems of the weaker students.
Answer scripts of the organized weekly test are shown to the students drawing their attention to the areas of knowledge deficiency, misconception and inability to express knowledge. This is done through to one to one talk outside the usual class hours.
The department of commerce arranges for summer course in math for the students without any math in their plus two course for the weaker students.

The process of mentoring is initiated as soon as the newly admitted students settled a bit. The Chief Mentors allocate different Professors as Mentors for the respective 1st Semester and 3rd semester rooms. An interactive meeting is organized with the mentors, Deans and Vice Principals to discuss on the issue and streamline the objective as far as possible. The mentors then chart out their course of action. The mentoring forms are not given out to the students. Rather they are asked to meet the respective mentors. After their discussion, the form is filled by the student himself in front of the mentor. So the initial casual approach of the students in filling up the forms was done away with. The concept of remedial classes is mooted out. Students requesting such classes are selected from each of the ten rooms. They are then grouped into 3 groups and a comprehensive timetable is prepared for their remedial classes.
