  1. SGPA: The SGPA is the ratio of sum of the product of the number of credits with the grade points scored by a student in all the courses taken by a student and the sum of the number of credits of all the courses undergone by a student.

  1. CGPA: The CGPA is also calculated in the same manner taking into account all the courses undergone by a student over all the semesters of a programme.

  1. The SGPA and CGPA shall be rounded off to 2 decimal points and reported in the transcripts.

The declaration of result shall be based on the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) earned towards the end of each semester or the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) earned towards the completion of all the eight semesters of the Programme and the corresponding overall Letter grades. If some candidates exit at the completion of first. second or third year of the four years undergraduate programmes, with Certificate, Diploma, three years degree, respectively, then the results of successful candidates at the end of second, fourth, or sixth semesters shall also be classified on the basis of(CGPA) obtained in the two ,four or six or eight semesters ,respectively for award of :

Grading System: 

Absolute grading would be used where the marks obtained are converted to grades based on pre-determined class intervals. To implement the following grading system, the colleges/campuses shall use the following UGC recommended 10-point grading system:

(i)A student obtaining Grade F shall be considered failed and will be required to reappear in the examination as per existing rules of the university under semester system for undergraduate courses.

(ii)Grade (D) or percentage of marks (36%) is required t pass in a course, SGPA of 4 to qualify a semester and a minimum CGPA of 4 to qualify for a UG degree.

Calculation of Semester grade Point Average ( i.e. SGPA is the grade point received in a particular semester by a candidate), Cumulative Grade Point Average(i.e. CGPA is the average grade points obtained in all the semesters) and the percentage of Marks, the following formulas are used:

i. SGPA =Credit Points/ Credit

ii. CGPA = Total Points Earned/Total Credits of the programme

iii. Percentage of Marks = CGPA x10

The description of Grades awarded, conversion of percentage and the marks converted into Grade points in a particular course/paper can be calculated with the help of Table I and II.
