Have a look at the table to get a holistic view on subjects, components and marks.

Students have to acquire 33% in each subject in order to pass. This includes theory marks and practical/project /internal assessment marks added together. In grading system, it means higher than ‘E’ grade.

For instance, if you score 10/20 in internals, then you should score 23/80 in theory exam. That becomes 10 + 23 = 33, which is the minimum  mark. Similarly, if your practical marks is 20/20,  then 13/80 is enough in theory. No minimum mark is specified for either theory or practical component separately.
