Grading System

The performance of a student in a given course is made through continuous evaluation that comprises quizzes/ in-course tests, class participation, attendance, home work/assignment, case study, mid-terms and trimester final examinations. Letter grades and grade points are used to evaluate the performance of a student in a given course. The table below shows the grading policy.

Letter Grade Grade Point Assessment
A 4.00 Outstanding
A- 3.67 Excellent
B+ 3.33 Very Good
B 3.00 Good
B- 2.67 Above Average
C+ 2.33 Average
C 2.00 Below Average
C- 1.67 Poor
D+ 1.33 Very poor
D 1.00 Pass
F 0.00 Fail

 

Calculation of GPA/CGPA

Grade Point Average (GPA) is the weighted average grade of a trimester while Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses completed by a student along with last trimester. For example, if a student passes/completes four courses in a trimester having credits of C1, C2, C3, & C4 and his grade points in these courses are G1, G2, G3, & G4 respectively then:

Earned Credit Hours

The course in which a student has obtained “D” or higher grade will be counted as earned credit hours. Any course in which a student has obtained “F” grade will not be counted towards his/her earned credit. In that case he/she will have to retake the course.

Incomplete (I)

Incomplete (I) grade may be assigned in special circumstances at the discretion of course teacher. The student has to take the initiative to remove the “I” grade within one month of the following trimester. If action is not taken, the “I” grade will revert to “F”.

Retaking a course (R)

Students may select to retake a course if he or she thinks grade improvement is possible. Students who wish to retake a course must register for the course again and will have to pay tuition and other applicable fees. Degree requirements for both Undergraduate and Graduate Programs: CGPA 2.00.
