The performance of students is assessed during the semester through mid term tests, assignments, quizzes, case studies or any other method considered appropriate by the course instructor and the University, This shall be communicated to the students at the start of a course. For almost all courses, the semester work will contribute 50% towards the final grade, while the final examination will contribute the remaining 50% of the total marks. A letter grade will be awarded to each student based on his/her overall academic performance in a course.
Description of Grades
The Grade Point Average calculation ensures a continuous scale for the respective grades. The grade issued by the University will be final. Two types of averages will be computed for the grades obtained by each student, the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). SGPA is the weighted average of grade points earned in a semester. The weights are taken as the ratio of course credits to the total credits taken by the student in the semester.
SGPA is the weighted average of grade points earned in a semester. The weights are taken as the ratio of course credits to the total credits taken by the student in the semester.
CGPA is the weighted average of all the courses taken so far. For repeat courses, only the most recent grade points are used, even if they are less than the earlier attempts.
The following points need to be noted:
- "W" will appear as a grade in the transcript like any other grade.
- "I" will appear as a temporary grade in the transcript subject to change to the grade awarded. Grade “I” shall automatically convert to an “F” grade before the end of the next semester.
Repeat courses will be indicated on the transcript together with the repeat count.
"S" or "U" is awarded for PhD Thesis work only and is not considered in CGPA calculation.
Letter Code Interpretation
Letter grades for BBA & BS programs
Letter grades for MBA & MS programs
Letter grades for PhD programs
The Following grades are common for all degree programs:
|FA||0.00||Faill (Attendance Shortage)|
Grades CR, I and W are not used in computing SGPA or the CGPA.
- At the end of every semester (including the first semester and summer semesters), warning is issued provided the CGPA of a student is less than the minimum required for the degree program.
- A student with a warning cannot register in a subsequent semester without approval of the relevant Head of Department or any other senior faculty nominated by him.
- After each semester (including the summer or the first semester), if the CGPA of a student is less than the required minimum, the Warning Count increases by one.
- If Warning Count becomes three, the admission of student at the University is closed.
- If the CGPA equals or exceeds the required minimum, the Warning Count becomes zero.
|Programs||Minimum CGPA required to avoid Warning|
The admission will be cancelled automatically after completion of maximum duration allowed to earn a degree.
Repeating a Course
A student can repeat a course if that course has not been passed or the student desires to improve his/her grade. A student must repeat all failed courses. Students under warning must repeat such passed courses, in which their GPA is less than the minimum CGPA required for their degree.
For example, MS students under warning (CGPA less than 2.50) must repeat courses in which their GPA is less than 2.50 (i.e. C or C- grade).
A student may request an extension in the final examination for genuine reasons subject to the following.
- An "I" grade will be given for the affected course provided he/she has satisfactorily met all other requirements for the course except the final examination.
- The "I" grade will be converted to appropriate grade before the end of next semester.
