≥ 90% to 100% A++ 9.0 – 10
≥ 80% but < 90% A+ 8.0 – 8.9
≥ 70% but < 80% A 7.0 – 7.9
≥ 60% but < 70% B+ 6.0 – 6.9
≥ 50% but < 60% B 5.0 – 5.9
≥ 40% but < 50% C+ 4.0 – 4.9
≥ 30% but < 40% C 3.0 – 3.9
< 30% F 0
Absent Ab 0

i) Numerical Grade Point shall not be calculated in respect of a failed paper

ii) The multiplicative factors shall be 0.10 for all Grades for the purpose of calculating numerical Grade Point. Example If the student secures P%, where P = 30 his/her grade point will be [3.0 + {(P – 30) × 0.1}] or simply 30 × 0.10 = 3 If a student scores 52% in a particular paper, his/her grade point for the paper will be (3.00 + 0.1 × 22) = 5.20 or simply, 52 × 0.10 = 5.2

      • Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA)

The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) will be the weighted average of the numerical grade points obtained in all the papers of the given semester, where Weights refer to the Credits assigned to the concerned papers. If the Numerical Grade Points obtained by a student in different papers of a Semester are denoted by Pi and the credit of the corresponding papers are denoted by Ci , the SGPA will be [S(Pi × Ci)/ SCi] where i=1 to n, and n= no. of papers in the Semester. The SGPA shall be shown in the mark sheet up to the third decimal point.

      • Cumulative Grade Point Average (SGPA)

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) over six semesters shall be the weighted average of the six SGPAs. CGPA =(S(SGPAj × Cj) / S Cj) where j = 1 to 6. CGPA shall be calculated and shown up to three decimal places. SGPAj is the SGPA of the jth Semester (j=1 to 6) and Cj is the total credit of jth Semester used for Grade Point Calculation.

THE GRADE OF THE CANDIDATE ON THE BASIS OF CGPA WILL BE AS FOLLOWS:

CGPA Letter Grade Remarks

9.000 – 10.000 A++ Outstanding
8.000 – 8.999 A+ Excellent
7.000 – 7.999 A Very Good
6.000 – 6.999 B+ Good
5.000 – 5.999 B Average
4.000 – 4.999 C+ Fair
3.000 – 3.999 C Satisfactory
0.000 – 2.999 F Fail

Both SGPA and CGPA will be rounded off to the third place of the decimal and will be shown as such on the grade sheet. The grade sheet issued at the end of each semester shall include the total marks obtained in each paper / module as well as the SGPA, the total marks obtained in that semester and the credit earned in the semester concerned. The final grade sheet, on completion of six semesters, shall include the SGPA of six semesters, CGPA, Letter Grade, the marks obtained, total marks and the total Credits earned.
