Examinations and Grading System for Bachelor Degree Programs

  • Performance: The performance of a student in a theory course will be evaluated on the basis of the following:
    1. Continuous assessment (assessment of class attendance, class performance, quizzes/class tests, and/or assignments etc.).
    2. Semester final examination.
    3. Clearance examination (for clearance of courses in which students fail in Regular Examination, if any).
    4. Carryover examination (for clearance of back log of course(s) of previous semester(s), if any).
    5. Improvement examination (for improvement of grades(s) obtained in the regular Examinations, if any)
  • Assessment and Semester Final Examination: Continuous assessment and semester final examination will form the regular examination while clearance examination, carryover examination and improvement examination will provide additional opportunities to the students.
  • Distribution of Marks: Distribution of marks after continuous assessment and in the semester final/clearance/carryover/improvement examination will be as follows:
  •  
  •  
  •  
  1.  

Class Participation (i.e. class attendance, class performance etc.)

Quizzes/Class Tests and/or Assignments

  • Quizzes /Class Test: The number of quizzes/class tests and/or assignments in a theory course shall ordinarily be (n +1), where ‘n’ is the number of credit-hours of the course. Evaluation of performance will be on the basis of the best ‘n’ quizzes/class tests and/or assignments.
  • Evaluation in Sessional/Practical Courses: The performance of a student in a sessional/practical course will be evaluated on the basis of class attendance, class performance, quizzes/class tests, assignments, reports, practical examinations, jury viva voce etc. The distribution of in the course will be determined by the teachers concerned.
  • Grade Point Structure: The letter grades and corresponding grade-points will be awarded for theoretical courses in the regular examination and for practical/sessional courses in accordance with the provisions shown below:

* Subject in which the student gets F grade shall not be regarded as earned credit hours for the calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA).

  • GPA computation: Every course has a certain number of credit hour which describes its weight age. The credit hour of a theoretical course and the credit hour of a practical/sessional course refer to contact hours per week and half of the contact hour per week of courses taken respectively. The number of credit hours a student has completed satisfactorily and the weighted average of the grade points he/she has maintained will help measure the performance of the students.

Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA) can be explained as follows:

Grade Point Average (GPA) =

 

      =

 

  •  

 = Total number of courses

= Credit in ith course

= Grade points in i th course

 

Suppose, a student has completed five courses in a semester and obtained the following grades:

 

  •  

Course Credit (Ci)

Earned Grade

Grade Point (Gi)

Course 1

  1.  
  •  
  1.  

Course 2

Course 3

Course 4

  1.  
  •  
  1.  

Course 5

  1.  
  •  
  1.  

 

Then his/her Grade Point Average (GPA) for the semester will be computed as follows:

 

GPA =

         = 3.52

  • CGPA Computation: The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the weighted average of the GPA obtained in all the terms passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student passes/ completes n terms having total credits of TC1, TC2, ... , TCnand his GPA in these terms are GPA1, GPA2, ... , GPAn, respectively then

 

Suppose a student has completed four terms and obtained the following GPA:

  • Marks in courses and Duration of Examination: The total marks assigned to a theoretical/ practical course is 100 and the duration of semester final examination of a theoretical course is 3 hours. The total marks assigned to continuous assessments (obtained on the basis of class participation, quizzes/class tests and/or assignments etc.) and the semester final examination are 30 and 70 respectively.

A student who remains absent in the semester final examination of a course of study will be given the grade ‘F’ for the course. The total marks and the corresponding grade F students who are absent in the examinations of a course will be entered in the mark sheet of the course, considering the mark of the examinations as zero.
