Credit Point Average (CPA) of a Semester/Programme is calculated using the formula
CPA = TCP/TC, where TCP = Total Credit Point; TC = Total Credit
Grades for the different semesters and overall programme are given based on the corresponding CPA as shown below:
Above 9 A+ - Outstanding
Above 8, but below or equal to 9 A - Excellent
Above 7, but below or equal to 8 B -Very Good
Above 6, but below or equal to 7 C - Good
Above 5, but below or equal to 6 D - Satisfactory

4 or below F - Failure
Note: A separate minimum of 30% marks each for internal and external (for both theory and practical) and aggregate minimum of 40% are required for a pass for a course. For a pass in a programme, a separate minimum of Grade E is required for all the individual courses. If a candidate secures F Grade for any one of the courses offered in a Semester/Programme only F grade will be awarded for that Semester/Programme until he/she improves this to E grade or above within the permitted period. Candidate who secures E grade and above will be eligible for higher studies.
