Evaluation and Grading System

A student’s academic performance in a course is evaluated in two phases as:

  1.  Internally (session work) by the concerned faculty member through quizzes, tutorials, lab works, home assignments,class tests, class participation, term papers etc.
  2. Externally by the Office of the Controller of Examination through Semester-end examinations.

A fifty percent weight is given to internal and fifty percent weight is given to external evaluation (Semester-end examination). A student is required to pass the internal and external evaluation independently. The final grade awarded to a student in a course is based on his/her consolidated performance in both internal and external evaluations.

The student’s performance is evaluated and graded on a letter grading system with a 4-point scale. In order to graduate, a student should achieve CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) of 2.0 or better.

Grade System
Grade Honor Points (CGPA) Description
A 4.0 Excellent
A- 3.7
B+ 3.3
B 3.0 Good
B- 2.7
C+ 2.3
C 2.0 Satisfactory
C- 1.7
D+ 1.3
D 1.0 Minimum requirement
F 0 Failing

Only in very rare and unusual circumstances, if a student cannot finish all the required works for the course, he/she may be awarded an incomplete grade of “I”. If all the required works are not completed within the following semester, the grade of “I” will be automatically converted into “F”.

Degree Requirements

For graduation a student should have:

  • A ‘D’ or better grade in each of the courses as specified in the curricular structure section.
  • Completed all the courses, project work and internship as specified in the curricular structure section within the maximum time period specified in the normal and maximum duration of study section.
  • Completed the internship with ‘Pass’ grade.
  • A CGPA of 2 or better.

A student, whose performance in the past semesters does not show the possibility of maintaining this CGPA, may be dismissed from the program.

Attendance Requirement

The students must attend every lecture, tutorial, seminar and practical classes. However, to accommodate for late registration, sickness and other contingencies, the attendance requirements is set for a minimum of 80% of the classes actually held. If the student is absent from the college for more than four weeks without permission of the principal, his/her name will be removed form the college roll.
