Course grade will be assigned by the faculty based on raw
numerical student scores acquired at the end of the course
The following are the major/prevalent grading systems:

system
Ìn case of the Final Year Project, the minimum pass

Ìn case of an MS course, the minimum pass grade is
C and after it "F¨ will be awarded
Ìf the total number of students in a class is more than

allows for screening students according to their
performance relative to their peers. The ranges for
assigning grades are based on upper limit of
percentage of students in a course that can have a
particular grade. Ìt also establishes minimum
achievement standards.
GPA is calculated by using following formula:

GPA is rounded off to two decimal points. The second
decimal point is rounded up to next higher digit if the third
decimal point is 5 or higher, otherwise second decimal point
remains unchanged. Similarly, cumulative GPA is calculated
for all the courses in all semesters attended and rounded off
accordingly.
However, only one attempt per course is allowed, and only 9
credit hours of repeats are permissible in the academic
program, including improving 'F' grade. The latest grade
earned by the student shall be considered for computation
of cumulative GPA.
A Grade "F¨ will be awarded if a student has
discontinued a course without formally dropping it and does
not qualify for Grade "̨ or to a student in a course for not
demonstrating adequate performance. Any such course is
required to be repeated by the student when offered the
very next time. Grade "F¨ carries zero grade points and will
be reflected in the SGPA calculations. Any such course is
required to be repeated.
Grade "̨: Ìncomplete
Grade "̨ is awarded to a student who is unable to take the
final examination of a course due to extreme circumstances.
Any such student is required to take the final examination of
that course within six weeks of the final examination,
provided all the other requirements of the course are
completed. Grade "̨ will be converted to grade "F¨
otherwise.
