CREDITS

All undergraduate courses in the College would be of 150 credits. One credit for theory course consists of 15 lectures of one hour duration.

GRADING SYSTEM
For the grading of students, the performance of the students is first marked according to the conventional procedure. Marks are then converted into Grades and the grades in turn into Grade Points in accordance with Four Point grading system using the following Table:

DISTRIBUTION OF GRADES AND GRADE POINTS

Percentage Grade Grade Points Interpretation Class
80 - above O 4 Excellent Distinction
73 - 79 A+ 3.67 Very Good First Class
66 - 72 A+ 3.33 Good
60 - 65 B+ 3 Above Average
55 - 59 B 2.67 Average Second Class
50 - 54 C+ 2.33 Satisfactory
45 - 49 C 2 Pass Pass Class
40 - 44 D 1
<40 F 0 Fail Fail

Credit Grade Point Average (CGPA) = Total Grade Points x Credits
Total Credits

One Credit is equal to 15 lectures
Suppose a student has been awarded in English the following marks in the first four semesters – 58%, 60%, 62% and 50% (These marks represent the average of marks in the Continuous Internal Assessment and End Semester Examinations), the Grades, Grade Points and Grade Point Average are calculated as shown below:

Subject Marks Grade Grade Points Credit Weighted Grade Points
English I 58 B 2.67 4 10.68
English II 60 B+ 3 4 12
English III 62 B+ 3 4 12
English IV 50 C+ 2.33 4 9.32
44 16

The total number of credits is 16 for English and the weighted grade points are 56. The students overall grade point average is 44/16 = 2.75. The student is eligible for the overall grade of B in English. Similar calculations will be made for all the courses.
