VU intends to provide a chance to all those students (expected graduates) who have completed their degree requirements but wish to improve their Grades/CGPA.

For those, who opt to avail this facility will:

  1. Not be declared as Pass-out
  2. No Transcript/Degree will be issued at this stage
  3. They will have to re-enroll again  

Therefore, you must give your consent by Monday, April 4, 2016 by sending an email at No request will be entertained after the given deadline. 

Please remember that if you fail to improve your Grade/CGPA then result of your previous attempt of the same course(s) will be retained.

For those who opt otherwise, the Pass-out notifications will be issued immediately and the Transcripts and all related certificates will be dispatched thereafter.

NOTE:  For grade improvement, qualified “D” grade course(s) can be repeated only once during the entire study program.  In case of MS/ MPhil program, the same rule applies on courses qualified with ‘D’, ‘C’ and ‘B-’ grades.

Grading Scheme for Masters or Bachelor Degree of VU:

Midterm = 35% (weightage)

Final term = 45% (weightage)

Academic activities (Assignments + GDBs + Quiz) = 20% (weightage)

Total 100% (Overall weightage)

Formula = (Obtained marks / Total marks * Total weightage according course grading scheme) 

VU  ko mail karey  aur  yeh bataye  phr ho sakta k woh aap ko samjha day ya thek kar day

really? rechecking ka koi fyda nhi?

VU will now implement the relative grading policy endorsed by HEC.

Some of the students are really excited after seeing their result and some are worried that awarding number in this manner can devalue VU’s degree. As we all are affected by this new grading system so I did some digging, here are my findings:

Excerpt from HEC’s “Implementation of Semester System in Higher Education Institutions of Pakistan” document

Relative Grading System:

Relative grading allows for screening students according to their performance relative to their peers. In relative grading a histogram of total marks obtained by all students is taken and ranges for assigning various grades are decided for awarding the grades. These “ranges” for assigning grades are based on upper limit of percentage of students in a course that can have a particular grade.

It  also  establishes  minimum  achievement  standards  linked  to  the  content  mastery  and  then calculate numbers of As, Bs and Cs etc., based on the curve tied to the students’ performance relative to their peers.


Here is the explanation; in relative grading boundaries are defined for each level. For example the top 10% will have A, the 20% below that will get B and so on. Therefore, relative grading is more dynamic and no fixed passing marks are needed. Relative grading is also good for assessing the students’ overall performance but on the downside it can also have some consequences too.

For example; if the overall class is very good and in a class it might be that 10 people score above 90% but since they cannot give a lot of As, those who score from 96% to 98% will only get As, while those scoring between 93% to 96% will get B+ and B falls between 90% to 92%. So even if you score that well in a test, you might end up getting a B. On the other hand, if the overall class is very bad, then there will be a lot of people who will get “A” grade even though they know nothing about the topic.

In the end I will just say because now you are competing with each other and every one of you is now affecting the grading of others, therefore, take steps wisely. For example, in past you may have shared your study notes with your friends but now sharing such material with your friends mean you are bringing a serious competition for yourself. Happy learning
