**Introduction**

The major purpose of the system is to identify the class, section, address, and gender of the students of Birendra Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya. The Roll No. is a system of marks or symbols used to represent entities, processes, facts, or relationships in an abbreviated or nonverbal form. As a code of a particular student, it gives short information related to the student. This system assigns Roll No. to the new comers and does not disturb the existing Roll No. of the old students.

**Need of Systematic Roll No. in BSAM**

Birendra Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya is a residential institution. All boys' students have to live in hostel. Some girl students are also going to live in hostel from this year. The students of the same class are similar in age, so their dresses, books, boxes, etc. are also similar. Hostel wardens get confused if the roll number is not assigned on the property of individuals. The Roll No. is individualized to separate the particular things of individual. The Roll No. of a student is used not only in a classroom but also in many places like in the library while issuing books, in the fee counter at the time of paying fee, in the lab, in the store, in the administration, in the exam section and so on. If a Roll No is duplicate, then it creates problems in the above section of the institution.

**Objective**

The new system of roll number seeks to create simple, short, easy to remember, and automatic way to update the concerned with basic information about the students at the first glace.

**Limitations**

If a student is upgraded from his/her general grade or failed this system cannot update the Roll No. We will easily know the upgraded or failed students with the help of the system.
It does not show the exact year of admission, in case of the students who are admitted in class 5, 6 or 7.
If a student is changed from one section to another section this system can not update.
This system can not allocate more than ten sections, more than 80 students in a particular section and more than 160 students from Bagmati Zone in a particular class.

**Notation**

Notation is a device for mechanizing arrangement, and must be composed of written symbols or signs whose order is defined. Indo-Arabic numerals (from 0 to 9) are used as notation for Roll No. Generally, the number of digits for Roll No of students will be four. Every digit of the Roll No. has its own meaning. First digit represents class, second - section, third - place and fourth - gender of a student.

**Capacity of the Notation**

The capacity of the notational system is defined as the maximum number of students that can be accommodated in a system. The decimal system in universal use today requires ten different symbols, or digits, to represent numbers and is therefore a base-10 system. The ten different symbols of decimal system are 0 to 9. The maximum capacity of decimal system is the power of ten. The system is like decimal system but not exactly similar to decimal system. Because the total number of class is IV to XII only nine (not ten) and the maximum number of sections are A to H eight (not ten). Therefore, its capacity is less than decimal system. The maximum capacity for whole BSAM students is 8800. The maximum capacity of a particular class is 800. The maximum capacity of a section of a class is 100. The maximum capacity from particular zone in a section of a class is 10 and the maximum capacity from particular zone in class is 80, except Bagmati zone.

**How to Assign Roll No of Students**

**The first digit**of the Roll No. represents the class of an individual student. In other words, the last digit of the year in Bikram Sambat contributes to the batch of the student enrolled in the Mahavidyalaya. For example, if a student is admitted in class four in 2066, the first digit of his Roll No. will be 6. Similarly, if a student is admitted in class four in 2067, the first digit of his Roll No. will be 7. Likewise, if a student is admitted in class six in 2066, the first digit of his Roll No. will be 4 because his batch is started in 2064.

**The second digit**of the Roll No represents the section of an individual student in school level and faculty and section in campus level. 1 is used for section A, 2 is for section B and so on in school level. Similarly, 1 is used for section A of humanities faculty. 2 and 3 are used for section A and B of management faculty. Digit 4 is vacant for future use. Likewise 5, 6, &7 are used for section A, B, & C of science faculty.

**The third digit**of the Roll No represents the place (permanent address) of an individual student. 0,1 are used for Eastern Development Region, 2, 3, 4, 5 are used for Central Development Region, 6, 7 are used for Western Development Region, 8 is used for Mid-Western Development Region, and 9 is used for Far Western Development Region. In detail these digits for separate zones; 0 is used for Mechi & Koshi, 1 is for Sagarmatha, 2 is for Janakpur, 3 & 4 are for Bagmati, 5 is for Narayani, 6 is for Lumbini, 7 is for Gandaki & Dhaulagiri, 8 is for Rapti, Bheri, & Karnali, and 9 is for Seti & Mahakali.

**The fourth digit**of the Roll No represents the gender of an individual student. Odd number including 0 is used for boys and even number is used for girls. For more detail, 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9 are used for boys and 2, 4, 6, & 8 are used for girls. General Instructions of the System To avoid duplication, first check the existing Roll No. available before providing the Roll No to a new student. If a student is admitted in class 5, 6, or 7 we have to check the existing Roll No. in a particular section of the class, not in all sections or all classes, so it is very easy to check the existing Roll No. If a student is admitted in class IV and XI, we don’t have to check the Roll No. The number of digits of the Roll No for the students whose batch start in the years that end in 0 (i. e. 2070, 2080, etc.) will only be three. In that case, the first digit represents section, second digit represents place and third digit represents gender of a student. For example 9736 is for Manisha Poudel, it means she is a girl of science faculty, class XI, and section C from Bagmati zone.

**Conclusion**

The Roll Number of a student serves to denote class, section, address, and gender of a particular student without naming them or defining them. This system will save the time of all teaching and administrative staffs to search the particular student among the whole students. The system is very simple anybody can assign the Roll No. of a student. We can easily say that the Roll. No. is right or wrong. If we know the Roll No. of a student we can easily find out class, section, address, and gender of the student. If we are confused in Roll No. which is hand written, for example, whether the last digit is six (6) or zero (0) for Manisha Poudel. She is a girl so last digit must be six not zero. Similarly, we will not be confused with the digit three (3) with eight (8), because all digits are reserved with their special meanings.
