Grading System

The total performance of a student in a given course is based on a scheme of continuous assessments. For theoretical courses this continuous assessment is made through homework, assignments, attendance, quizzes etc., a mid semester and a semester final examination of three/two hours duration. The distribution of marks for a given course is as follows:

Assessment 30%
Mid Semester 20%
Final Exam 50%
Total 100%

The assessment in laboratory/field work courses is made by observing the student in the respective lab classes and also by taking viva-voce and quizzes.

Each course has a letter grade equivalent to a certain number of grade points. Letter grades and their corresponding grade points are as follows:


Numeric Grade
Letter Grade Grade Poin
80% and above A+ 4.00
75% to less than 80% A 3.75
70% to less than 75% A- 3.50
65% to less than 70% B+

3.25
60% to less than 65% B 3.00
55% to less than 60% B- 2.75
50% to less than 55% C+ 2.50
45% to less than 50% C 2.25
40% to less than 45% D 2.00
Less than 40% F 0.00
Incomplete Works I ––
Satisfactory (only for 7th semester project/thesis) S ––
Exempted (For credit transfer courses) E ––

GPA Calculation:

A student's performance is measured by the number of credits that he/she has completed satisfactorily and the weighted average of the grade points that he/she has maintained. A minimum GPA is required to be maintained for satisfactory progress and a minimum number of earned credits should be acquired in

gpa calculation

Where grade points are points against letter grades A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D and F. Credits are only for those courses attempted at this university.

Attendance

All students are expected to attend classes regularly. The University of Asia Pacific believes that regular attendance is essential for effective learning. A student is required to attend at least 70% of all the classes held in every course in order to sit for the final examination.

Absence during Semester

A student shall not be absent in quizzes, tests, mid semester examinations etc., during the semester. Such absence will naturally lead to reduction in points/marks, which shall count towards the final grade. Absence in the final examination held at the end of each academic semester will result in F grades.

Performance Evaluation

The performance of a student will be evaluated in terms of semester GPA and cumulative grade point average (CGPA), which is the grade point average for the semesters under consideration. A candidate will be awarded a degree with honors if his/her CGPA is 3.75 or above. A student will be considered to be making normal progress towards a degree if his/her CGPA for all work attempted is 2.25 or better and is in good standing with the university.

Students who fail to maintain this minimum rate of progress will fail to be in good standing. Such circumstances may prevail under one or more of the following conditions:

  • 1. Semester GPA falls below 2.25,
  • 2. Cumulative GPA falls below 2.25.
  • 3. Earned credits fall below 15 times the number of semesters studied.

Conduct and Discipline

A student should conform to the highest standard of discipline and shall be herself/himself within and outside the premises of the university in a manner befitting the student of a university of national importance. He/She shall show due courtesy and consideration to the teachers and other employees of the university and render sincere co-operation to his/her fellow students. The students also pay due attention and courtesy to the visitors.
