GRADING
SYSTEM:
Equivalence in numerical grades, letter grades and grade points will be as follows:

i) 
Maximum possible Grade Point Average is 4.00. 
ii) 
Minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average for obtaining 2 year MS/M.Phil (course work and comprehensive) is 2.50. In order to qualify in the examination of semester a student must obtain at least GPA 2.50 and in individual subject not less than 2.30. 
iii) 
If GPA/ CGPA of a student remains <2.50 (but >2.30) the student shall be given one chance (only once) to repeat two subjects (26 Credit Hours) in order to improve CGPA in MS/M.Phil. If GPA /CGPA of a student remain <2.50 he/ she shall be dropped from studies 
iv) 
Minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average for PhD (course work and comprehensive) is 3.00. (For detail see E and F of PhD). 
v) 
A fraction of mark in a course is to be counted as '1' mark e.g. 64.1 or 64.9 is to be shown as 65. 
vi) 
Letter Grade and Grade Point for a course will be calculated as given above. 
vii) 
In order to calculate the GPA, multiply Grade Point with the Credit Hours in each Course to obtain total grade points, add up to cumulative Grade Points and divide by the total number of Credit Hours to get the GPA for a Semester. 

∑ ( GP x Credit Hours) courses of a semester
GPA = 
Total Credit Hours of a semester

viii) 
For calculating CGPA, sum total of GPs in a semester earned in different courses multiplied by respective credit hour of a course and divided by total numbers of credit hours. 

∑ ( GP x Credit Hours) of all courses in a programme
CGPA = 
Total Credit Hours of all courses in that Programme
