Computation of Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
- An “IC” grade (Incomplete)shall be awarded to a student who is unable to complete a course for reasons of ill-health justified by the Faculty/Department as satisfactory. A student may receive a grade of Incomplete (“IC”) only if the course works remaining to be done by the end of the semester is small. And the lecturer approves an extension for completing the unfinished work. The new grade will be given when the coursework is completed.
- A “W” grade (Drop)shall be awarded to a student who drops a course he/she registered within the stipulated schedule (i.e., by the third week in a full semester or the second week in a sandwich session).
- A “UD” grade (Unofficial Drop)shall be awarded to a student who registers for a course and either never attends or stops attending— but does not officially drop the course. A designation of “UD” is equivalent to a grade of “E” (Fail).
- An “X” grade (Disqualification)shall be awarded to a student who is unable to complete a course for reasons of ill-health or reasons other than ill-health and justified by the Faculty/Department as satisfactory. Such a student shall be expected to complete the course the very next time the course is available.
- A “Y” grade (Work Still in Progress)shall be awarded to a student who is unable to complete a course designed with a multi-term sequence, i.e., going beyond one semester. The lecturer may report a “Y” grade at the end of the first term to indicate that the work is still in progress. When a final grade is reported, the grade will be posted for both terms and the “Y” notation will be removed.
- A“Z” grade (Examination Malpractice)shall be awarded to a student whenever it is established that the student had attempted to gain an unfair advantage in an examination. Be it in an end-of-semester examination or continuous assessment or any other category of assessment. Such a student shall be debarred from taking any of the University’s examinations for a stated period, or indefinitely, or may be expelled from the university altogether.
