1. Grading System: A five - point currently adopted as shown.

Mark Range Interpretation Grade Grade Point

70-100% 5 A Excellent

60-69% 4 B Very Good

50-59% 3 C Good

45-49% 2 D Satisfactory

40 -44% 1 Poor but

Passing

0-39% 0 F Failure


2. Computation of Result

The following terminologies and abbreviations are commonly used in the


progressive computation of student’s results throughout his/her semester four / five years in the University.

i. Total Loading Units (T .L. U)

This is the total number of course units carried by a student in a particular semester. It is the summation of the load units on all courses during the semester, for example, a student who is taking 8 courses of 2 units each has a T.L.U. if 8 x 2=16 for that semester.


ii. Cumulative Load Unit (C.L. U.)

This is the summation of total load units over all the. semester from the beginning to date. A student who is prone to repeating courses will finish (if he does not drop out) with a higher C.L.U. than his non-repeating colleagues, and will most likely require a longer time to complete requirements for the award of a degree.


iii. Total Credit Point (T.C.R)

This is the sum of the product of course units and, rating in ach course, for the entire semester. For example consider a student who took 6 courses of 3 units each, suppose the grade he/she obtained in the six courses were A,B,C,D,E and F respectively. The TCP of this students is obtained as unit x grade point i.e. 3x5+3x4+3x3+3x2+3x1 +3x0 =15+ 12+9+6+3+0= 45.0

iv. Cumulative Grade Point (CGP)

This is summation of Total Credit Point over all semesters from the beginning to date.



v. Grade Point Average (GPA)

This is the Total Credit Point (TCP) divided by the Total Load Units (TLU), for example, consider the student’s score referred to in section (iii). his T.C.R is 45.0 and has T.L.U. of 18 (i.e. 5 course of 3 units each forthe semester, his GPA is therefore 45/18 = 2.50. The highest possible GPA that can be earned is 5.0 and that is when a student has earned an “A” grade in every course during the semester. The lowest GPA obtainable is 0.00, signifying “F” grade all through.



vi. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

This is not the summation of GPA’s for all semester rather it is the summation of TCP for all the semester to date divided by the summation of TLU forthe said semester. Like the GPA, CGPA’s obtainable range from 0.00 to 5.00 in effect, CGPA = CCP/CLU where CCP is Cumulative Credit Point and CLU is the Cumulative Load Unit.


Final Assessment & Class of Degree

Class CGPA

First Class 4.50-5.00

2nd Class Upper Division 3.50-4.49

2nd Class Lower Division 2.40 -3.49

3rd Class Division 1.50- 2.39

Pass 1.00-1.49
vii. Academic Probation

A student whose CGPA at the end of any semester is less than 1.00 shall be placed on academic probation during subsequent semesters.


viii. Withdrawal for the University

A student who is on academic probation in a semester and fails to achieve a CGPA of at least 1.00 at the end of that session shall be asked to withdraw from the university.



ix. Repetition of Courses

Any course failed by a student must be repeated until passed. A student may repeat only those courses in which he/she has obtained a grade F. The grade earned for repeated course shall be recorded and used in the computation of the GPA and CGPA in the usual way.


2. Requirements for the Award of a Degree

For the award of a degree, a candidate must satisfactorily complete, the minimum number of units prescribed for the degree. He/she must in addition, complete successfully all compulsory courses as well as the special and free electives for the degree as prescribed.
