VU Passing Rule of Examination According to New Grading Scheme- Post Your Exam Related Query Here

Exam Passing Rule of VU According to New Grading Scheme


I hope everyone is fine. I have seen that everyone is confused about the passing criteria of examination in Virtual university. Everyone is confused about the percentage of marks considered as pass in each subject. So according to the new grading scheme of examination, 20% rule has changed now. You have to score 50% as aggregate in each subject to pass.

Grading Scheme for Masters or Bachelor Degree :

Grading scheme of vu  for all masters degrees or bellow is as follows

Midterm = 35%

Final term = 45%

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

Total 100%

Grading Scheme for MS Degree:

Grading scheme for MS degree is as follows

Mid term = 30%

Final term = 30%

Assignments + Academic term paper = 40%

Total = 100%

Passing Criteria of Virtual University:

The passing criteria or scheme of VU has changed now. According to the new scheme a student must have to appear in the exam for sure. Make sure you don't miss any of your exam otherwise you will get F grade even if you appear in finals (if you missed midterm exam of a particular subject but appeared in final term then there is no chance to pass because you did not appear in midterm so your academic activities and final term will not make any difference and you will get F in the subject) So make sure not to miss any term exam neither midterm nor finalterm

Please note that if you got even 1 mark in midterm in a particular subject then you are pass because midterm result does not decide your grading. Result and grading either pass or fail depends upon aggregate result such as

Midterm + Academic activities + Final term = 50%

If you have got less than 20% in midterm exam then it is no problem you are not fail. There is still a chance to pass the subject by working hard in final term and academic activities i.e assignment, GDB, quiz etc because grade is calculated in totality of midterm, academic activities and final term percentage and your total final grade including midterm, final term and academic activities must be atleast 50% because below 50% is equal to F grade.

Marking Scheme:

You have to score 50% as aggregate in each subject to pass as 

Midterm + Academic activities + Final term = 50%

So marking scheme of exams is based on the following rule given below and on the basis of this rule total final grade or CGPA is calculated.

Midterm + [Assignment, Quiz, GDB] + Finalterm = 50% = Pass

Midterm + [Assignment, Quiz, GDB] + Finalterm =  Less than 50% = Fail

I hope it is clear now. Don't panic if midterm percentage is below than 20% you are not fail. You can pass your subject by working hard in finalterm and academic activities. Previous 20% rule is not applicable now. It was changed since fall 2013.

Explanation in Urdu:

My sincere apologies to my juniors who could not understand the post well. I apologize for making them worried so much. Let me explain in Urdu whatever I meant to say in this post

Midterm exams main ager percentage 20% se kam hai tou is se farq nai perta. Is se aap fail nai ho jatay Sirf midterm ki percentage aap ke total CGPA ko decide nai kerti haan ager at least 20% hoon tou achi baat hai but ager 20% se kam bhi tou fiker kernay ki zaroorat nai hai. Aap ke pass chances hain ke aap academic activities main aur final term main mahnat ker ke pass ho sktay ho kion ke final grade tamam activities yani midterm + assignments + Quizes + GDBs + finalterm ko mila ker hi calculate kiya jata hai VU main. Is baat ka khayal rakhiya ke aap ko bhi term exam mid yaan final miss na kerain werna aap ko us subject main dubara appear hona ho ga aur jis subject ka aap ne term exam miss kia hai us main aap ko F milay ga aur activities ke grading ka bhi aisi sorat main koi faida hasil nai ho ga becoz aap ne term exam (mid or finalterm) ko miss kia so make sure ke aap kisi bhi sorat term exams miss na kerain. Kisi bhi term exam main aap ki percentage 0 nai honi chahiya because percentage ka zero hona yaan term exam ka miss kerna aik hi baat hai . Koi bhi student ager paper deta hai ager us ne parhai theek se na bhi ki ho aleast wo thoray bht marks tou zaroor score ker sakta hai (ye baat aur hai ke who paper unsolved yaan blank chor ker aa jaiye) tou midterm yaan final term main zero percentage tou bilkul hi illogical hai

Meray kahnay ka matlab sirf itna hai ke aap ki percentage na tou zero honi chahiya kisi term exam main na hi aap koi term exam miss kero  otherwise aap ke pass honay ke chances hain hardwork se. Kion ke cgpa midterm yaan finalterm ki percentage se calculate nai kiya jata. Overall sari activities (midterm + assignment+ GDB + finalterm) ko mila ker hi calculate kiya jata hai or overall percentage atleast 50% honi chahiya. Aap sirf itna zehan main rakhiya ke sirf akaili midterm yaan finalterm ki percentage hi aap ke pass yaan fail honay ko decide nai kerti overall 50% hona chahiya tab hi aap pass hon gay
