Grading Policy


Total performance of a student in a given program is based on a scheme of continuous assessment. For theory course, this continuous assessment is made through a set of class tests, evaluation, class participation, homework, assignment and term final examination. The assessment in sessional courses is made through observation of the student at work during the class, viva voce during lab hours, sessional reports and quizzes. Each course has a certain number of credits, which describes its corresponding weights. A letter grade with a specified number of grade point is awarded to each course for which a student is measured both by the number of credits completed satisfactorily and by the weighted average of the grade point earned. A minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) is essential for satisfactory progress. A minimum number of earned credits also have to be acquired in order to qualify for the degree. Letter grades and corresponding grade points is awarded in accordance with the provisions shown below:
