6. Grading
6.1 A grading system as below will be adhered to.
6.2 GPA & CGPA
GPA is the ratio of the sum of the product of the number of credits C _{i} of course “i “ and the grade points P _{i} earned for that course taken over all courses “i” registered by the student to the sum of C _{i} for all “i ”. That is,
GPA =
∑ C P
i
i

computation of GPA and CGPA until after those grades are converted to the regular grades.
6.4 Raw marks will be moderated by a moderation board appointed by the Vice Chancellor of the
University. The final marks will be graded using an absolute grading system. The Constitution and
composition of the moderation board will be dealt with separately.
