In general, a student shall not be permitted to repeat any course(s) only for the sake of ‘Grade Improvement’ or ‘SGPA/CGPA Improvement’. However, he has to repeat all the courses pertaining to that semester, when he/she is detained. The student passes the subject/course only when he/she gets GP ≥ 4 (P Grade or above).
The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) is computed as Where ‘i’ is the subject indicator index (takes into account all subjects in a semester), ‘N’ is the no. of subjects ‘REGISTERED’ for the semester (as specifically required and listed under the Course Structure of the parent department), is the no. of credits allotted to the ith subject, and represents the Grade Points (GP) corresponding to the letter grade awarded for that ith subject.
Passing Standards: A student shall be declared ‘passed’ in a semester, only when he gets a SGPA ≥ 5.00
In spite of securing P grade or above in some (or all) subjects/courses in any semester, if a student receives a SGPA < 5.00 and/ or CGPA < 5.00 at the end of such a semester, then he/she ‘may be allowed’ (on the ‘specific recommendations’ of the Head of the Department and subsequent approval from the Principal) –
- to go into the next subsequent semester (subject to fulfilling all other attendance and academic requirements).
- to improve his/her SGPA of such a semester to 5.00 or above’, by reappearing for ONE or MORE of the same course(s) in which he/she has secured P grade(s) in that semester, at the supplementary examinations when held.
