SEMESTER SYSTEM

It is called “Semester System” because in this system, an academic year is usually divided into two sessions. Each one is called “Semester”. The summer session is also included in some cases as a summer semester. The two semesters (each of a duration of sixteen to eighteen weeks) are named as Spring and Fall semesters, respectively.

Registration?
A student may register himself in any of the semesters as a part time (not for B.E)or full time student, depending upon the number of courses he or she selects to offer in that semester. Academic Support Office is responsible for the add and drop process in PAF-KIET. Registration is of two types in PAF-KIET; • Self (Above 2.5 GPA) • Manual (Less than 2.5 GPA)

Credit Hour?
Credit Hour means that how many hours should be given to that particular course weekly. One credit hour in terms of equivalence means one hour of lecture per week.

Pre-requisites?
Each course is basically independent for other courses, but some courses are designated as prerequisite for advanced courses in some disciplines.

Grading?
The evaluation is totally based on class participation, assignments quizes, projects and final exam. A cumulative grade is then awarded at the end of the semester. Usually letter grades like A,B,C,D, and F are recorded on the transcripts against the courses offered by a student. The letter grades in terms of numerical equivalence as per PAF-KIET’s policy are usually as follows: A = 84 to 100 Marks B+= 78 to 83 B = 73 to 77 C+ = 68 to 72 C = 60 to 67 F = Fail (below 60)

GPA?
GPA is grade point average

Formula: (Grade x Credit Hr.)/Total no. of Credit Hrs.

Remember!
A student is required to maintain minimum CGPA 2.5 in order to get the degree.

Annual System Vs. Semester System

Time Management

Time management is a set of principles, practices, skills, tools, and systems working together to help you get more value out of your time with the aim of improving the quality of your life.

The important point is that time management is not necessarily about getting lots of stuff done, because much more important than that is making sure that you are working on the right things, the things that truly need to be done.

If you become a good time manager, you’ll not only get a lot more done in less time, but you’ll feel more relaxed, focused and in control of your life.

You’ll be able to use your time in a much more balanced and effective way, and you’ll be able to make time for the people and activities that you love. When you get to the end of a busy day, you’ll feel a strong sense of accomplishment from everything that you actually got done.
