Academic Grading

The performance of students is assessed during the semester through mid term tests, assignments, quizzes, case studies or any other method considered appropriate by the course instructor and the University, This shall be communicated to the students at the start of a course. For almost all courses, the semester work will contribute 50% towards the final grade, while the final examination will contribute the remaining 50% of the total marks. A letter grade will be awarded to each student based on his/her overall academic performance in a course.

  2. A student with a warning cannot register in a subsequent semester without approval of the relevant Head of Department or any other senior faculty nominated by him.
  3. After each semester (including the summer or the first semester), if the CGPA of a student is less than the required minimum, the Warning Count increases by one.

Repeating a Course

A student can repeat a course if that course has not been passed or the student desires to improve his/her grade. A student must repeat all failed courses. Students under warning must repeat such passed courses, in which their GPA is less than the minimum CGPA required for their degree.

For example, MS students under warning (CGPA less than 2.50) must repeat courses in which their GPA is less than 2.50 (i.e. C or C- grade).
