We know that Virtual University has recently started / implemented the relative grading system w.e.f. Fall 2013. A lot of students are of the view that it is not a better grading system as compared to the absolute grading with regards to future prospects of the students. I like to know whether there are other universities in Pakistan too who are using the relative grading system? I reckon relative grading system is not a requirement, but an option under the "Draft Policy Guidelines regarding Semester Examination Issues" given by HEC. So why has the VU adopted this scheme without any consultation / feedback from the students?
For sure the NUST has relative grading system and i guess it is in transition in pakistan from a few last years probably around 2011.
In Rest of the world the most known grading system is Relative Grading System for certain reasons.
