Grading the Assessment Tasks

Absolute marking system is followed at IBT for grading the students assessment. This system is based on their actual achievement that is in the form percent of total points possible in each assessment task. Marks thus obtained are presented in the form of Numerical Grade (NG) as well as in Alphabetical Grade (AG). Each AG is then assigned respective Grade Point (GP). Equivalence of numerical grades to alphabetical grades and the resultant grade point is given in the Table below.

Incomplete grades are  awarded to those students who fail to appear in the final examinations for some genuine reasons. Students requesting Incomplete (I) grade should seek approval from the Academic Department, which will ensure that the student meets attendance and other evaluation requirements.

CREDIT HOURS EARNED

It is the cumulative number of credit hours earned for the courses declared pass.

GPA and CGPA

GPA is the Grade Point Average and CGPA is the Cumulative Grade Point Average. GPA expresses student's academic achievement in each semester numerically. The GPA is calculated by adding the grade points for all courses in a semester and then dividing it by the total number of courses opted in a semester. The GPA ranges from 0.00 to a maximum of 4.00. CGPA is calculated by adding credit points earned for all the courses completed and dividing it by the total number of courses attempted in all the semesters.

Semester Grade Points Average (GPA) is computed as follows:

GPA = Sum of (credit hour x grade point)
Total credit hours

MAKE-UP MIDTERM
