Passing Criteria, Grades & GPA Explanation



To pass a particular subject you have to get


(Assingments+GDBs+Quizzes)+ Mid Term collectively = 20 % at least     (collectively)


(Note:- you will not be pass if you get 20% only in midterm....and zero in Assingments+GDBs+Quizzes....Because collective marks are not 20%)




Final Term = 20 %   at least




And OVER ALL Percentage Should be at least 40% .To pass a course.



To get a Degree you need to earn at least 2.25 CGPA



Grades, Grade Points and Grade Point Average (GPA):


(i)                           Grade and Grade Points:

Grade of a course is awarded by teacher, recorded as evaluative and their symbols/letters used are listed below; whereas quality of achievement in a course is measured as Grade Point, that is, points per course hour assigned to a passing grade, indicating numerical value of the subject grade.



(ii)                        Grade Point Average (GPA): It is widely accepted as a measure of academic achievement. GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of letter graded credit hours attempted. Each grade has a point value as follows: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0. W for withdrawal and I for Incomplete may also be used.     



Maximum grade point average=4.00  

Minimum cumulative grade point average for obtaining a degree =2.25




GPA Value

Marks Obtained




80-100 %




65-79 %




50-64 %




40-49 %




Below 40 %




(Fractional marks to be rounded to the nearest whole number)



GPA of a semester is calculated as: multiply each grade point you receive by the number of credit hours for that course, add up the totals, and then divide by the total number of credit hours taken in that semester.


Cumulative Grade Point Average: Cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is the weighted mean value of all grade points earned by enrollment or by examination in courses at VU.


(Explanation: GPA and CGPA include the number of credit hours at VU for a letter grade even if a grade of “F” was earned).


The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) will be calculated on the basis of the following formula:



CGPA = Sum (Credit Hrs for course X Grade Point obtained in the course) / Sum (credit Hrs)



With the sum being taken over all courses taken by the student with the specification that repeated courses shall be counted once only. 

(Explanation: If a student repeats a course, it will only be counted once towards the grade point and that will be calculated in the CGPA).
