(ii) Calculation of SGPA & CGPA

SGPA is calculated by dividing the sum of ‘Credit Points’ in a Semester divided by the sum of ‘Course Credits’ in that Semester.

CGPA is calculated by dividing the sum of ‘Credit Points’ by the sum of ‘Course Credits’ of the current semester + all pervious semesters.

Hypothetical Example for Computation of SGPA and CGPA:

Let us assume that Mr. X has registered for four courses in the 1st semester and his performance in these courses in this semester is given in the Table below:

Calculation of SGPA:

‘Credits’ of the Courses  registered by Mr. X in 1stSemester             =   16

‘Credit Points’ of Mr. X in 1stSemester                                           = 120

                                    SGPA of 1stSemester  (120/16)                 =  7.5

Calculation of CGPA:

‘Credits’ of the courses registered by Mr. X in 2ndSemester            =  16

‘Credit Points’ of Mr. X in 1stSemester                                           = 120

                                    CGPA of 1stSemester  (120/160)               =  7.5

Let us, now, assume that the Mr. X has performed in 2ndSemester as under :

Calculation of SGPA of 2ndSemester:

‘Credits’ of the courses registered by Mr. X in 2nd Semester             =  16

‘Credit Points’ of Mr. X in 2ndSemester                                            = 100

                                    SGPA of 2nd Semester  (100/16)                =  6.25

Calculation of CGPA upto 2ndSemester:

 ‘Credits’ of the courses registered Mr. X in 1st& 2nd Semesters (16+16)               =  32

‘Credit Points’ of Mr. X in 1st& 2ndSemesters (120+100)                    = 220

                        CGPA upto2nd Semester  (220/32)                                           =  6.87

19. Pass criteria and grading system:

The minimum percentage of marks to pass the examination in each semester will be 40% in each theory paper, practical /field work/Research Project etc. examination (including internal assessment).

20. Declaration of Results:

(i)  The Controller of Examinations shall declare the results as early as possible after the conclusion of each examination, but before the start of teaching for the next academic session.

(ii)  Each successful student/ the student placed in reappear shall receive a copy of the Detailed Marks Certificate/ Grade Card Sheet of each semester examination.

(iii) The student whose   result   is   declared   late   without   any   fault   on   his/her   part   may attend classes for the next higher semester provisionally at his /her own risk and responsibility, subject to his /her passing the concerned semester examination.  In case, the student fails to pass the concerned semester examination, his/her attendance/internal assessment in the next higher semester in which he / she was allowed to attend classes provisionally will stand cancelled.

21. Classification of Performance:

Performance of the successful students after the 4th semester examinations on basis of final CGPA obtained by him / her in the 1st to 4thsemester examinations shall be classified as under:

CGPA ( with equivalent* % marks)

Classification of Performance

CGPA of 8.25 (equivalent to 75% marks) or more in first attempt

First Division with Distinction

CGPA of 8.25 (equivalent 75%) or more marks in second or subsequent attempt

First Division

CGPA of 6.75 (equivalent to 60% marks) or more but less than 8.25(equivalent to 75% marks)

First Division

CGPA of 5.75(equivalent to 50% marks) or more but less than 6.75(equivalent to 60% marks)

Second Division

CGPA above Pass Grade(equivalent to 40% marks) but  less than 5.75 (equivalent to 50% marks)

Third Division

CGPA less than  Pass Grade (equivalent to 40% marks)

Fail

    *Formula for conversion from CGPA to % marks : (CGPA -0.75)x10 =% of marks

22. Grace Marks:

The student may be awarded Grace Marks upto 1% of total marks excluding Internal Assessment marks subject to a maximum of 5 marks in theory papers only in one academic year.

23. Clinical Training

Each student shall complete the recommended hours of Clinical Training in the parent institute/ hospital as per the Scheme of Examinations.

24. Other Provisions:

(i)  Nothing in the Ordinance shall debar the University from amending the Ordinance and the same shall be applicable to all the students whether old or new.
