The student must has done an internship in his/her academic period in order to be eligible for award of degree. However, this internship would be non-credited.
Students are evaluated by mid-semester exam, home assignments, quizzes, case studies, course project, laboratory reports, oral tests and the end semester examination. The weightage allocated to each assessment item depends upon the nature of the course.
A student enrolled in a semester and active throughout the semester will be considered eligible for being permitted to appear in the mid semester and end semester examinations.
Award of Letter Grades
The course teacher, having interacted with the students, taught them and having assessed them over the semester, shall award letter grades to the students. Chairman of the concerned degree awarding department will be consulted while ﬁnalizing the letter grades. Letter grades in each Type-A course (where class size is minimum of 25) shall be awarded on a relative scale whereas, letter grades in Type-B and Type-C courses may be awarded on an absolute scale, if deemed appropriate by the course teacher. The student who obtains zero marks in end semester exam shall be awarded F grade and excluded while awarding relative grades in a course.
Relative Grading Method
A number of different relative grading schemes may be used at the University. Two of the acceptable schemes are explained below. Other schemes may be used with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
Relative Grading Based on Mean and Standard Deviation on a Normal Distribution Curve Following steps in awarding letter grades on a relative scale are to be followed:
Minimum marks threshold linked to content mastery shall be established for award of a passing letter grade. Students earning marks below this threshold shall be awarded “F” grade;
Expected maximum marks threshold shall also be established. Student(s) crossing the maximum threshold, if any, will be awarded “A+” grade. The grade points of “A+” and “A” are same. As such, it is expected that only exceptional students demonstrating outstanding results are given recognition by award of this grade.
Students earning marks between the maximum and minimum thresholds are listed in descending order of merit and the average (x) and standard deviation (σ) is computed for the set of marks obtained by students.
Passing letter grades are awarded according to the table given below, with “A” being the highest passing grade and “D” being the lowest passing grade.
The following ranges for the letter grading are recommended and the detail is also shown in the below figure: A+ will be assigned to above ¯x+2σ A will be assigned to the range between ¯x+3σ/2 and ¯x+2σ A-will be assigned to the range between ¯x+σ and ¯x+3σ/2 B+ will be assigned to the range between ¯x+σ/2 and ¯x+σ B grade will be assigned to the mean and spread in 1st half of the standard deviation i.e. B=¯x+σ/2 B- will be assigned to the range between ¯x-σ/2 and¯( x)-σ C+ will be assigned to the range between ¯x-σ and ¯x-4σ/3 C will be assigned to the range between ¯x-4σ/3 and ¯x-5σ/3 C- will be assigned to the range between ¯x-5σ/3 and ¯x-2σ Similarly, below ¯x-2σ D and fail grades shall be assigned D grade shall not fall below 30
It is not essential that every class should have all letter grades awarded, that is, it is possible that a class does not have any student below the minimum threshold; Or in another scenario in which no student, in the opinion of the instructor, is eligible for any grade. There may be cases where no student qualiﬁes for some intermediate grade.
An upper limit on percentage of students in a course who can earn a particular passing grade may be placed, if required.
Relative Grading Using Normalization With Respect to Highest Score Teacher may normalize absolute grades in order to incorporate aspects of both absolute and relative grading methods, if felt necessary. The normalized absolute grade levels are set as follows:
- Letter grades in type-A courses, which include theoretical credits, shall be awarded on a relative scale. If maximum marks obtained by a student in any type-A course are “X”, minimum levels for letter grades become: A ≥ 0.85X A- ≥ 0.80X B+ ≥ 0.75X B ≥ 0.71X B- ≥ 0.68X C+ ≥ 0.64X C ≥ 0.61X C- ≥ 0.58X D+ ≥ 0.54X D ≥ 0.50X F ≥ 0
- A+ is the highest passing grade and D is the lowest passing grade. However, it is expected that only exceptional students demonstrating outstanding results are given recognition by award of A+ grade.
- In type-B courses, which include laboratory credits, letter grades can be assigned on relative or absolute scale whichever is deemed fit by the course teacher.
If a teacher or HOD are convinced that students in a course have colluded to influence the outcome or grades of a course or limited attempts on assessment items of a course (exams, homeworks, quizzes, etc.) so as to lower the class average or to limit the highest score, the teacher may use an absolute scale for awarding the letter grades.
Conversion of CGPA into Percentage of Marks on the Scale of 4.0
Whenever any party from outside the University requires equivalent percentage of SGPA/CGPA, the following equivalence of SGPA/CGPA and percentage is to be used.
GPA Computation Method
The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade point Average (CGPA) shall be computed according to the following formulae: SGPA=Σ(GPx*CHx)/ΣCHx x = 1 to n, where n is the number of courses in the semester for which SGPA is to be computed. CGPA=Σ(GPy*CHy)/ΣCHy y = 1 to m, where m is the number of total courses covered in all semesters up to the semester for which CGPA is to be computed.
Authority to Compute Results
Grade Points (GP) in each course, Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of each student shall be computed and notiﬁed by the Controller of Examinations at the end of each semester.
Withdrawal From a Course
A student may withdraw from a course(s) if he/she feels that he/she cannot complete it and continuing with it will adversely affect all of the other courses also. The HOD must be informed by the student through a written request on the prescribed form regarding his/her intention for withdrawal from a course. Non-attendance will not constitute an official withdrawal
Withdrawal Before End of Second Week (“W0” Grade)
After being registered in any semester, a student can Add/Drop any course with the permission of Advisor/HOD till the end of second study week. Such withdrawn courses shall be identified with status “W0”, and neither will be shown on transcript nor will affect the SGPA. Courses repeated after such withdrawal will not be sufﬁxed with “(Repeat)” when shown on the transcript.
Withdrawal Before End of 10th Week (“W1” Grade)
With the permission of teacher and HOD/Advisor, a student can withdraw from any course till the end of 10th study week and there will be no fee refund. Such course will be identified with status “W1” and neither will be shown on transcript nor will affect the SGPA. Courses repeated after such withdrawal will not be sufﬁxed with “(Repeat)” when shown on the transcript.
Withdrawal After 10th Week (“W2” Grade)
With the permission of teacher and HOD/Advisor, a student can withdraw from any course after 10th study week but before final exam and there will be no fee refund. Such withdrawn courses shall appear in the transcript with a letter grade “W2”, and shall not be used in computation of SGPA. Courses repeated after such withdrawal will not be sufﬁxed with “(Repeat)” when shown on the transcript.
Administrative Withdrawal (“W3” Grade)
A student registered in a course may not be permitted to continue due to any disciplinary action. Such students shall be placed under “W3” academic status. It shall appear in the transcript as such, and shall not be used in computation of SGPA. Courses repeated after forced withdrawal will not be sufﬁxed with “(Repeat)” when shown on the transcript. A student who does not drop a course nor appears in any assessment instrument will not be eligible for “W3” grade and will be awarded an “F” grade instead.
Withdrawal due to short of attendance (“W4” Grade)
If a student is short of attendance in any course, he/she shall be placed under enrollment status “F-Sat”. Such courses shall appear in transcript with letter grade “W4” and shall not be used in computation of SGPA/CGPA.

The student receiving such a grade shall make up the unﬁnished portion of his course to the satisfaction of the faculty member who awarded this grade, and shall be given a letter grade as per regulations at the discretion of the faculty member without prejudice to the previous grade “I”. In case, the student fails to complete the unﬁnished portion within the following semester his “I” grade would be converted to ”F” grade by the Controller of Examinations. The responsibility for completing the unﬁnished portion and lies with the affected student.
In Progress “IP” Grade
- Course(s) that spread over more than one semester maybe graded as “IP” until completion of these courses. This grade shall be recorded in the transcript and will not be treated as “F” grade. First portion of such course maybe graded as “IP” if the department decides to award the final letter grade upon completion of the second portion. It shall appear in the transcript as such, and shall not be used in computation of SGPA/CGPA and total credit hours completed till that time. However, this IP grade will be replaced by the original grade when final grade is awarded. Upon completion of this course the SGPA of previous semester(s) and credit hour count will be updated as well.
