1st Part


2nd Part


Case/Assignment 5% Case/Assignment 5%
Incourse /Class test 10% Incourse/Class test 10%
Midterm 30% Trimester Final 30%

* For a 3 credit hours course minimum four class tests need to be taken and best two of them will be considered for evaluation. For a 2 credit hours course minimum three class tests need to be taken and best two of them will be considered for evaluation.

** After the completion of the midterm examination, the 1st part of the course would be considered completed and would not be carried for trimester final examination.

Grading System

The performance of a student in a given course is made through continuous evaluation that comprises quizzes/ in-course, class participation, attendance, home work/assignment, case study, mid-term and trimester final examinations.

Letter grades and grade points are used to evaluate the performance of a student in a given course. A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C and D are the passing grades while F is the failing grade. Grade ‘I’ is incomplete and grade ‘W’ is for withdraw. The numerical grades used in calculating the GPA/CGPA (Cumulative grade point average) are as follows:

Marks Range

Letter Grade

Grade Point

80% and above A+ (A Plus) 4.0
75% to less than 80% A (A regular) 3.75
70% to less than 75% A- (A minus) 3.50
65% to less than 70% B+ (B Plus) 3.25
60% to less than 65% B (B regular) 3.0
55% to less than 60% B- (B minus) 2.75
50% to less than 55% C+ (C Plus) 2.50
45% to less than 50% C (C regular) 2.25
40% to less than 45% D   2.0
Less than 40% F   0.0
  I   Incomplet
  W   Withdraw
Calculation of GPA/ CGPA

Grade Point Average (GPA) or Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the average of the grade points obtained in all the courses passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student passes/completes four courses in a trimester having credit hours of C1, C2, C3 & C4 and his/her grade points in these courses are G1, G2, G3 & G4 respectively then Suppose a student got grade point "4.0" in a 3 Credit hours course and 3.0 in 1.5 credit hours course then his/her GPA/CGPA will be as follows

Earned Credit Hours

The course in which a student has obtained "D" or higher grade will be counted as earned credit hours. Any course in which a student has obtained "F" grade will not be counted towards his/her earned credit. In that case he/she will have to repeat the course. "F" grade will not be counted for GPA calculation.
