  1. Calculation of Grade/Grade Point for a Course:

For each Course, a Letter Grade/Grade Point will be assigned according to the system defined in (ii) a or (ii) b above.

Grade Point Average (GPA) will be worked out at the end of each Semester. In order to calculate the GPA, multiply Grade Point with the Credit Hours in each Course, add up all Grade Points and divide by the total number of Credit Hours to get the GPA for the Semester. Course with ‘F’ will be counted as ‘Zero’ Grade Point for calculation of Semester Grade Point Average.

Calculation of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) at the end of a program:

              Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) can be calculated in a manner similar to that explained in (iv) above               considering all the Courses in all Semesters of the Program.

              For example if the courses given above in examples number 1 and 2, are the courses during the first and                      the second semester respectively,

          the Cumulative Grade Point Average at the end of the academic year will be =  Total Grade Points/Total Credits

                       =   79.0 / 35 = 2.26

             Calculation of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) will only be made when a candidate has passed all

             the Courses required for the award of the degree i.e. at the end of a program.

                   1. A minimum CGPA = 2.00 is required to qualify for the degree.
