Based on the performance, each student shall be awarded a final grade at the end of the semester for each course. Absolute grading is used by converting the marks to grade, based on predetermined class intervals.

UGC 10point grading system is used with pass grade modified.

Letter grade Grade point Percentage of marks
O (outstanding) 10 100%
A+ (Excellent) 9 90-99.99%
A (Very Good) 8 80-89.99%
B+ (Good) 7 70-79.99%
B (Above average) 6 60-69.99%
C (Average) 5 50-59.99%

F (Fail) 0  

For Nursing Courses and all other courses – Pass is at C Grade (5-grade point) 50 % and above For English and electives- Pass at P Grade (4 Grade point) 40 % and above

Computation of Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

SPGA- Is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all courses by the student during the semester (All courses excluding English and electives)

Ex. SGPA computation

Course Number Credit/s Letter grade Grade point Credit point (Credit X grade)
1 3 (C1) A 8 (G1) 3×8=24
2 4 (C2) B+ 7 (G2) 4×7=28
3 3 (C3) B 6 (G3) 3×6=18
B.Sc Nursing Program Structure
SGPA= C1G1+C2G2+C3G3 C1+C2+C3  

= 70/10 =7 (rounded off to two decimal points)

Computation of CGPA

CGPA is calculated with SGPA of all semesters to two decimal points and is indicated in final grade in mark card/transcript showing grades of all 8 semesters and their courses/subjects.

CGPA reflects the failed status in case of fail until the course/s are passed

Semester I Semester 2 Semester 3 Semester 4
Credit-Cr
Cr: 20
SGPA: 6.5
CrxSGPA=20×6.5
Cr: 22
SGPA: 7.0
Cr: 25
SGPA: 5.5
Cr: 26
SGPA: 6.0
CGPA =  (20x6.5+22x7+25x5.5+26x6)/93

= 6.2096
