  1. Grading System

Letter grading will be made to assess students’ performance. The grade will be assigned on the overall evaluation of a student’s performance on the basis of semester final examination, midterm exam.case studies, tutorial test, term papers, assignment and class attendance in aggregate and whatever is applicable for an individual program. The teachers responsible for the course will determine Grades/GPA. The final result will be prepared by cumulating the grade point average over the courses. The UGC approved common grading system is adopted for assigning a letter grade and grade point. This is given in the following table:

Numerical Grade Letter Grade Grade Point
80% and above A + 4.00
75% to less than 80% A 3.75
70% to less than 75% A- 3.50
65% to less than 70% B+ 3.25
60% to less than 65% B 3.00
55% to less than 60% B- 2.75
50% to less than 55% C+ 2.50
45% to less than 50% C 2.25
40% to less than 45% D 2.00
Less than 40% F 0.00
F *Failure; I ** Incomplete; W ***Withdrawal; R****Repeat; Y*****                Audit
* “F” means failure. Credits for courses with this grade do not apply towards graduation.
**  “I” grade is given to students who have fulfilled the majority of the course requirements but have been unable to complete the rest. The student is not required to register for the course in the next semester.
*** “W” means withdrawal. A student may decide to withdraw from a course by the deadline with the consent of the instructor and the Academic Advisor.
**** “R” means repeat. To improve grade say, F to D or better, more than two times repetition of a course is allowed.
***** “Y” means audit. An existing student or ex-student may decide to audit a course of his/her interest for improvement of his knowledge for the particular course. In this case, the student pays the full tuition fee for the course, attends the classes, but is not required sitting for the exams and no credit is earned.

# Subject in which the student gets ‘F’ grades will not be counted towards credit hours

requirements and for the calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA)

  1. Performance Evaluation of Courses

Final grade in each course will be given on the basis of the performance on class attendance & participation, continuous assessment, mid-term examination and final examination as indicated as under:

Evaluation Criteria Marks/Weight
Class attendance & Participation 10
Continuous Assessment 20
Mid-term Examination 30
Final Examination 40
Total 100

Calculation of GPA.

Grade Point Average (GPA) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained of all the courses passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student passes/completes n courses in a term having credits of C1, C2, … , Cn and his grade points in these courses are G1, G2, … , Gn respectively then

The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the weighted average of the GPA obtained in all the terms passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student passes/ completes n terms having total credits of TC1, TC2, … , TCn and his GPA in these terms are GPA1, GPA2, … , GPAn respectively then

A Numerical Example

Suppose a student has completed eight courses in a term and obtained the following grades:

Course Credit, Ci Grade Grade Points, Gi Ci*Gi
IPE 105 3.00 A- 3.50 10.500
IPE 104 1.50 A+ 4.00 6.000
IPE 205 3.00 A 3.75 11.250
IPE 204 1.50 B+ 3.25 4.875
PHY 117 3.00 B- 2.75 8.250
PHY 102 1.50 C+ 2.50 3.750
CHE 119 3.00 D 2.00 6.000
CHE 114 1.50 C 2.25 3.375
MATH 291 3.00 B 3.00 9.000
Total 21.00      63.000

GPA = 63.000/21.00 = 3.00

Suppose a student has completed four terms and obtained the following GPA:

Level Term Credit Hours Earned, TCI GPA Earned, GPAi GPAi*TCi
1 1 21.00 3.73 78.330
1 2 20.50 3.93 80.565
2 1 19.75 3.96 78.210
2 2 20.25 4.00 81.000
Total 81.50     318.105

CGPA = 318.105/81.50 = 3.90

Minimum Earned Credit and GPA Requirement for Obtaining Degree

Minimum credit hour requirements for the award of bachelor’s degree in engineering (B.Sc. Engineering) and other discipline will be decided as per existing rules.

Absence during a Term.

A student should not be absent from quizzes, tests, etc. during the term. Such absence will naturally lead to reduction in points/marks, which count towards the final grade. Absence in the term final examination for any reason will result in an ‘F’ grade in the corresponding course. A student who has been absent for short periods, up to a maximum of three weeks due to illness, should approach the course teacher(s) or the course coordinator(s) for make-up quizzes or assignments immediately upon return to classes. Such request has to be supported by medical certificate from competent authority.
