 Audit Course does not carry any credit, hence, will not be considered in the SGPA/CGPA calculation. But the grade card will reflect “Audit course” and will be awarded with grade as in Table-1(a or b or c). However, the student will have to pass the course with minimum required attendance and evaluation result to clear the semester.

ii) Obtaining Grade Point
 The academic performance of a student will be graded on Ten point scale.
 The qualitative assessment of student’s performance will be indicated by these grades.
 Each grade is associated with a grade point as listed in Table-2.
Table-2: Grades and Equivalent Grade Points

Grade Grade Point
AA 10.00
AB 9.00
BB 8.00
BC 7.00
CC 6.00
CD 5.00
FF 0
ZZ 0

iii) Calculating SGPA and CGPA
 The grades upto „CD‟ awarded to student in all the courses shall be converted into a Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
 SGPA=Sm =
∑ Ci∗Pi
∑(Ci)
WhereSm=SGPA of „mth

semester; Ci = Credit of „ith’ Course
Pi- Grade point earned of ith course

CGPA=∑ Cj∗Pj
∑(Cj)
Where, Pj= Grade points earned in the jth course;
Cj = Credit of jth course up to semester for which CGPA is to be
calculated.
J= 1,2, … m represents the number of courses in which a student is registered up to the semester for which CGPA is to be calculated.
