To earn the MBA / MBA (IB) degree, a student must earn a minimum of 80 credits including 5 credits. 8. Perusal / Revaluation of Evaluated Answer Scripts: Mid Term Exam answer scripts will be handed over to students by the respective faculty members after valuation. Any discrepancy will be corrected then and there. There will not be any retest for Mid Term Exams. After the Term End Exam results are published, students desirous of seeing their TEE answer scripts have to apply for the same within a week from the date of publication of results by paying the prescribed fee. Similarly for revaluation of answer scripts, they have to apply with prescribed fees within a week from the date of publication of results. Normally the results of revaluation will be published within one month. As a standard procedure all answer scripts are checked for correctness of totaling, hence there is no need for applying for re-totaling. There is no provision for revaluation in Labs / Practical exams and Project works examinations. Examination results will be displayed in the respective School and in the University intranet. 9. Grading System Based on the performance, each student will be awarded a final letter grade at the end of the trimester for each course. The letter grades and the corresponding grade points are as follows Letter Grade Grade Point S 10 A 9 B 8 C 7 D 6 E 5 F (Fail) Zero AAA 10. Relative Grading The letter grade assignment to a student in a course is based on Relative Grading System. In the Relative Grading System the following two extreme situations which normally upsets the students are nullified. (1) Majority of students scoring very low marks because of either the question paper is tough or the evaluator is very strict. (2) Majority of students scoring very high marks because of either the question paper is easy or the evaluator is very lenient. In this system the grades are awarded to students according to their performance relative to their peers. Normally the class average mark is taken as mid point of ‘C’ grade and relative to this, based on the sigma (standard deviation) value, the other grades are finalized. 11. Calculation of Grade Point Average The Grade Point Average (GPA) for each trimester and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for all the trimesters are calculated as follows: For each course passed, the grade point is multiplied by the credit for that subject. The total of all such credit earned is calculated. This grand total is divided by the credits earned (passed). The result thus calculated is the trimester Grade Point Average. Similarly Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated for more than one trimester or for the programme (i.e.)

12. Registration of Examinations All the students who have registered for a particular course in a term will be assumed to be taking the examination for that course at the end of the term provided he/she is declared not eligible due to 1. Acts of indiscipline 2. Withdrawal of Course A candidate who is absent in the Term End Examination of a course / project work, after having registered for the same, will be assumed to have got zero in the examination and entry will be made in the grade sheet. 13. Award of Degree After successful completion of the course and earning the required number of credits, a Provisional Certificate will be issued to the eligible students. Degree will be awarded during the Convocation. 14. Copying / Malpractice If a student indulges in copying or any malpractice in the Mid term or in the End Term Examinations of the University, he will not be permitted to write any further examinations during that period and all the examinations written in that period (i.e. Mid Term or Term End) will deemed to have been cancelled and zero marks will be awarded.
