e.         Calculation of GPA (Grade Point Average) and CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average)

(1)       Grade Point Average (GPA) is the weighted average of all the grade points obtained in all the courses passed/completed by a student. CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) will be computed after each semester to determine the academic standing of the student in the programme.

(2)       The four-step procedure that will be followed to calculate the CGPA of a student is given below:

(a)       Grade points earned in each course will be computed based on credit hours in that course and the individual grade earned in that course by multiplying both.

(b)       All subject grade points (determined at step 1) will be added to determine the total grade points earned.

(c)       Credits of all registered courses (excluding the course for which the student applies for ‘Supplementary Examination’) will be added together to determine the total number of credits.

(d)       GPA will be determined by dividing the results of step 2 by the result of step 3.

(3)       For example, if a student passes/ completes five courses in a semester having credits C1, C2, C3, C4, C5 and his/her grade points in these courses are G1, G2, G3, G4, G5 respectively, then:

GPA = Total Grade Point earned in particular Semester/Number of Courses taken in the particular Semester

GPA = ∑ CGi/∑ Ci 

(4)       A numerical example, Suppose, a student has completed five courses in a term obtained the following grades:




Grade Points

ENG 1101




ENG 1102




ENG 1103




ENG 1104




ENG 1105




(5)       GPA for the term will be computed as follows:

(GPA) Calculation = (3x4.00+3x3.00+3x3.75+2x3.25+1x3.50)/(3+3+3+2+1) = 3.52

(6)       When a course is repeated for improvement, the last result or grade point shall be counted for calculation of GPA and CGPA. If the grade point, obtained in improvement, is lower than the grade point obtained earlier, the earlier one (previous grade point) shall stand.

(7)       Performance in all courses including the ‘F’ grade shall be reflected in the transcript.

(8)       Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) Calculation is as follows:

 CGPA = (Total credits in a semester X semester GPA + total credits in a semester X semester GPA+…)/(Summation of total credits from all semesters)

= (15x3.75+15x3.5+16x3.6)/(15+15+16)

= 3.61

f.          Promotion Policy.

a.         To be promoted from one semester to another, students must obtain a minimum CGPA (with maximum number of F Grade to be considered in each semester) as mentioned in the table below:


Undergraduate Program


(From & to)

Required Minimum CGPA (During the mentioned semesters)

Number of ‘F’ Grade to be Considered (in each semester)


1st – 2nd


Maximum three(03)‘F’ Grade


2nd – 3rd


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade


3rd – 4th


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade


4th – 5th


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade


5th – 6th


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade


6th – 7th


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade


7th – 8th


Maximum two(02)‘F’ Grade

b.         If a student gets ‘F’ grade in more than three (03) courses in 1st Semester and more than two (02) courses in any one of the other semesters (2nd to 8th) and/or fails to obtain required CGPA in a semester as mentioned above, he/she will automatically be relegated to the next batch and such relegation for more than twice at any time throughout the entire registration period will warrant permanent withdrawal of the student from the programme. However, the relegated student, besides retaking the courses obtaining ‘F’ grade, will also have the option to improve or retake for rest of the courses.
