~Pehly ya dekh lain k mid kya hai or final kya hai ~


Midterm is assignment gdb and quizes plus your midterm papers and final is simple final papers mid ka paper 35 ya maximum 40 marks ka hta hai to isky 20% marks bny 10 or baki assignment GDB or quiz k 15 marks hty hain jismain farz krain apky 10 agy to 10 paper k or 10 assignment quiz wagara k huay 20 so midterm k 35 + 15 = 50 jismain apny 20 marks liye to ya percentage bni 45% percent which means u r passed in midterm ku k percentage 45% sy zada hai 


Final k paper  total marks  80 hty hain  or ismain apny 30% lany hain to wo bny 25 so ismain b 30% agyy so final ma b pass 


Ab vu ki grade points ki trf aty hain jo k ya hai




  90 – 100



  85 – 89


  3.66 - 3.99

  80 – 84


  3.33 - 3.65

  75 - 79


  3.00 - 3.32

  71 - 74


  2.66 - 2.99

  68 - 70


  2.00 - 2.65

  61 - 67


  1.00 - 1.99

  50 - 60


  0.00 - 0.99

  Below 49


Ab dakhain k apky mid ki percentage or final ki percentage ko plus krty hain to ya bny 45% + 30% = 75% to apky us subject ka grade point hoga 3.33 or B+


Midterm Fail Issue

Kuch students k mid ma 20% sy km aty hain to wo gbrain nhe bcz assignment gdb or quiz k marks jitny subject k mid ma marks ayain hain usmain add kr dain for example


CS101 subject ma 6 ay hain out of 40 jo k 20% sy km hain to ap assign gdb or quiz k marks ki calculation kr k like 15 ma sy 10 agy to 10 or 6 add kr dain .ab hmary pass mid k total marks hain 50(35 + 15) jismain 16(6 + 10) agy to percentage calculate krny ka trika ya ha 16/50x100 = 32% which are more than 20% So he/she is passed.


But final ma agr 30% sy km agy to phr apky pas koi choice nhe hoge then he/she will befailed.phr chy k mid ma 80% he ku na ho final ma sirf papers sy 30% mil skty hain0


Last Issue

Kuch students sochty hain k mid ma he unky 50% agy to unko final nhe dana pry ga to wo asa glt schty ha bcz final ma b 30% lany he prain gy otherwise he or she is fail ku  k wo 50% to sirf mid k hain bki final k 30% kn ly ny maximu 20% mid ki or maximum 30% final ki passing percentage range rkhi bki agr ap is range sy zada laty ho to wo apki he khushnseebi hoge k ap k grade points brhain gy.


I hope ab sb ki confusion dur hogyi hoge!

VU GPA 2 is equal to 61 % where as most of the universities 60 % marks are equal to 2.50 GPA, ----Many universities admission criteria announces that if annual system then 60 % marks if GPA then 2.50 so it means vu 60% marks should be equal to 2.50 GPA,

VU GPAs and percentages are not compatible ,GPA should be increased comparing %

Grade Grade Points Equivalent Percentage
A+ 4.00 90 - 100
A 4.00 85 - 89
A- 3.66 - 3.99 80 - 84
B+ 3.33 - 3.65 75 - 79
B 3.00 - 3.32 71 - 74
B- 2.66 - 2.99 68 - 70
C 2.00 - 2.65 61 - 67
D 1.00 - 1.99 50 - 60
F 0 Below 50

Mr. Farhan Mushtaq!

Kindly mention here grading scheme for each course separately than have already mentioned in coruse section. As we all know, each subject has specific grading scheme. Then your 100% result can be calculated..

14. Examination and Weightage:

(i) Midterm and final examinations shall be conducted in a formal, proctored environment at examination centers designated for the purpose by the Controller of Examinations.

(ii) A mid-semester examination up to 60 minutes duration will be held after the 22nd lecture of a course, which will carry 35% of the total marks allocated for the course.

(iii) In addition, home assignments and quizzes shall carry 15% of the total marks allocated for the course.

(iv) Participation in class discussions through the Graded Discussion Board of each subject shall carry up to 5 % of the total marks allocated.

(v) The final examination of up to three hours duration will be held at the end of the course, and shall carry 45% of the total marks allocated for the course.

(vi) The teacher shall finally determine the marks allocation of a course.

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
