The final grade of a University student is prepared,based on an overall performance of students in assignments, examinations, quizzes, term papers, laboratory tests and class attendance. Each teacher from the course determines the grade of the student.
Determination of CGPA:
The system of Letter Grading is used for evaluation of a student’s performance in a course. A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, and D are considered as passing grades of the course. F is a failing grade of the course. Besides, `I’ in the grading system stands for (incomplete), W stands for (withdrawal), R stands for (repeat). Students obtaining such grades (F, I, W) do not proceed towards graduation and are not taking into consideration for the calculation of the Grade Point Average (GPA).

`I’ which stands for incomplete will be given to a student only when the student has been maintaining a regular attendance and has done satisfactory performance and has furnished proof to the teacher within last two weeks of the term that the work cannot be completed due to illness or other circumstances beyond the control of the student. If an incomplete grade is not made up by the end of the upcoming term then it shall be converted to the grade of 0.00 which is failing (F) by the Controller of Examinations.
