Calculation of GPA/CGPA


Grade Point Average (GPA) or Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the average of the grade points obtained in all the courses passed/completed by a student. For example, if a student passes/completes four courses in a trimester having credit hours of C1, C2, C3, & C4 and his/her grade points in these courses are G1, G2, G3, & G4 respectively then








Suppose a student got grade point "4.0" in a 3 credit hours course and 3.0 in 1.5 credit hours course then his/her GPA/CGPA will be as follows:





Earned Credit Hours Earned Credit Hours


The course in which a student has obtained "D" or higher grade will be counted as earned credit hours. Any course in which a student has obtained "F" grade will not be counted towards his / her earned credit. In that case he/she will have to repeat the course. "F" grade will not be counted for GPA calculation.








Marks of Class Attendance





Attendance (%) Marks Attendance (%) Marks
90- 100 10 65- 69 5
85- 89 9 60- 64 4
80- 84 8 55- 59 3
75- 79 7 50- 54 2
70- 74 6 Below 50% 0



Course Monitoring


  1. At the beginning of a trimester, all the courses will be assigned by the Academic Committee of the respective department headed by the Chairman.      




  2. The course-teacher shall provide the students a course outline indicating the list of textbooks to follow, probable dates of in-course tests and home assignments.



  3. The Academic Committee will monitor the progress of the course by sitting together at least once in a month, fix up the examination schedule and conduct the examination.




  4. Result of each trimester will be published within a maximum period of 1week  from the date of last examination of the trimester final.



Academic Probation


Students of undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate or any other academic and professional programs with a GPA less than 2.50 will be placed under probation for one trimester only. If he/she fails to improve his/her grade within one trimester, he/she will have to leave the university. If a student fails to attend any class test, midterm or final examination, he/she will get a zero in that particular class test, midterm or final examination. When a student secures grade 'F' in any course, he/she will require to repeat that course by paying full course fee. Repeating a course implies that the student has to attend all the classes, class tests, midterm and final examinations as a regular student. No student will be allowed to repeat/retake a course more than three times. If any student fails to improve the grade within the stipulated times, he/she will not be allowed to take any further course(s) to continue until he/she improves the grade.
