Students have to attend the Theoretical and Practical exams in Specific courses compulsory. Students have to pass the exam by getting a 40% mark or a D grade or Grade point 2. For those students who get D or above D in specific subjects, only those credits per subject will be countable for the result. Non-Credit English Subjects will not be included in the result.
EPS(Earned Point Secured) is measured by the product of Grade Points and Credit of the same course. The total EPS one student will get in the whole year will be divided by the total credits offered in one year, and the net CGPA will be calculated from that result. No credit will be gained for those who get below ‘D grade’ rather that is deliberated as an ‘F grade’. If one can improve from an F grade to a higher one, then the credit will be included in the CGPA.
GPA= ΣPS (Total Point Secured in a Year)
ΣCR (Total Credit offered in a Year)
CGPA = ETPS of (1st year + 2nd year + 3rd year + 4th year) + Earned Grade point/points
Total number of credits completed in the whole program
- From 1st-year to 2nd-year promotion, students have to achieve a minimum D in 3 subjects in the theoretical exam to get promoted. The same rules are for the 2nd year to the 3rd, but for the final year promotion, Minimum D in 4 subjects is needed.
- Absence in one course but presence in the others in the exam, if they are passed, they will be promoted in the next year. But he/she has to attend the ‘Absent’ course in the following year mandatorily.
- A student can get a chance to improve his/her F grade in the following year. That means if one fails in one course in the 1st year then he/she’ll get a chance to improve his grade in the next year. But if a student does the same thing again, he/she‘ll not be promoted to next year.
