It is a well-observed fact that the students who score good grades are those who attend classes regularly. Therefore, the students must strive to attend all the classes without fail.

R.11.2 Every teaching staff member handling a class will take attendance till the last instruction day in the semester. The percentage of attendance, calculated up to this point, will be indicated by a code number/letter as follows:

 

Attendance rounded to Code
95% and above H
85 to 94% 9
75 to 84% 8
Below 75% L

 

 

R.11.3 A student must maintain an attendance record of at least 85% in individual courses. Without the minimum attendance of 85%, in any course, students become ineligible to write the end semester examination in that course.

Letter Grades and Grade Points (GP) Based on the semester performance, each student is awarded a final letter grade at the end of the semester in each Course. The letter grades and the corresponding grade points are as follows:

R.16.1 The Srinivas University adopts absolute grading system wherein the marks are converted to grades, and every semester results will be declared with  semester   grade  point  average  (SGPA)   and  Cumulative Grade  Point Average (CGPA). The CGPA will be  calculated every semester, except the first semester.

  1. The grading system  is with the  following letter  grades  as  given below:

Grades and Grade Points

Level Out standing Excellent Very good Good Above Average Average Poor Fail
Letter Grade O S A B C D E F
Grade Points 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 00

A student obtaining Grade “F” shall be considered failed and will be required to reappear in the examination.

Such students after passing the failed subject in subsequent examination/s will be   awarded with “E” grade irrespective of marks he/she scores in the subsequent examination/s.

Number of attempts taken to clear a subject/s shall be shown in the transcripts.

Level Out standing Excellent Very good Good Above Average Average Poor Fail

Computation of SGPA and CGPA

The following procedure to compute the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA):

ii. The SGPA is the ratio of sum of  the product of  the number of credits  with the  grade points  scored by  a  student  in all the courses taken  by   a student  and the sum of  the  number of credits of all the courses undergone by a student, i.e

SGPA (Si) = ∑(Ci x Gi) / ∑Ci

where Ci is the number of credits of the ith course and Gi is the grade point scored by the student in the ith course.

iii. The CGPA is also calculated in the same manner  taking into account  all the  courses  undergone by  a student  over all the semesters of a programme, i.e.

CGPA = ∑(Ci x Si) / ∑ Ci

where Si  is the SGPA  of the ith semester and Ci is the total number of credits in that semester.

iii.   The SGPA  and CGPA  shall be  rounded off to 2  decimal places and reported in the transcripts.

Transcript  (Format): Based  on the above recommendations  on Letter grades,  grade  points,  SGPA    and   CCPA,  the  transcript  for  each semester and a consolidated transcript indicating the performance  in all semesters may be  issued.

R16.2 CONVERSION  OF GRADES  INTO PERCENTAGE:

Conversion formula for the conversion of GPA into Percentage is

[CGPA Earned – 0.75] x 10=  Percentage of marks scored.

Illustration: [CGPA Earned 8.2 – 0.75]x 10  = 74.5%

R.16.3 A student is considered to have completed a Course successfully or achieved a pass grade and earned the credits if he / she secures a letter grade other than U or W or I or F in that Course. A letter grade U or W or I or F in any Course implies a failure in that Course.

R.16.4 A Course successfully completed cannot be repeated.

R.16.5 If a student gets a fail grade F (U/W/I) in a course with both theory and practical components, then he/she has to reappear in the end semester examinations of both.

R.16.6 If a student obtains U grade in a course in the first three attempts, from fourth attempt onwards, full weightage (100%) shall be assigned to marks scored in the end semester examinations and the internal assessment marks they have scored during the regular course of study will be ignored. The first attempt is that which corresponds to the first registration for the course. If a student gets U or I or W grade in an attempt that is treated as an attempt.

The detailed methodology of normalization of internal marks as well as marks in the end-semester examinations shall be formulated by the Controller of Examinations.

R.16.7 To pass in a course with earnable credits a student has to score a minimum of 40% of the total normalized marks .

R.17.0 Declaration of Results

R.17.1 Normalized marks are referred to the Result Passing Board for the finalization of results. Controller of  Examinations assigns letter grades and announces the results.

R.17.2 The W/I grade once awarded stays in the record of the student and is deleted when he/she completes the course successfully later The grade acquired by the student will be indicated in the grade card of the appropriate semester with an indication of the month and the year of passing of that course.

R.17.3 ‘U’ grade obtained by a student will be deleted in the grade card once that course is successfully completed. The pass grade acquired by the student will be indicated in the grade card of the appropriate semester with an indication of the month and the year of passing. The CGPA will be accordingly revised.

R.18.0 Re-view of answer scripts

In case any student feels aggrieved on the final outcome of the assessment in any course ,the student shall apply to the Controller of Examinations, along with the prescribed fee, for the review of end semester examination answer script, within the stipulated time after the announcement of the results of the examinations. The Controller of Examinations shall facilitate the review of the answer script jointly to be carried out by the student and the faculty detailed for this purpose. If any discrepancy is noticed during review the same shall be rectified and the originally awarded grade accordingly amended.

R.19.0 Course Repetition

R.19.1 A student securing U grade in a core course has to compulsorily get a pass grade for the award of degree and a student securing a W grade in a core course shall undergo compensatory course, appear in the end semester examination and get a pass grade.

A student securing U or W or I grade in an elective course has the following options:

(i)         He/she may reappear and pass the course in case of U or I grade or register for compensatory course and pass in case of W grade.

OR

(ii)        He/she may opt for another elective in place of the elective in which he/she did not get a pass grade and achieve a pass in it.

An elective course with grades S to F cannot be withdrawn.

R.20.0 Grade Card

R.20.1 The grade card issued by the Controller of Examinations at the end of the semester to each student will contain the following:

  1. The credits for each course registered for that semester,
  2. The letter grade obtained in each course
  3. The attendance code in each course
  4. The total number of credits earned by the student up to the end of that semester in each of the course categories
  5. The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of all the courses taken from the I semester onwards for regular students and from III semester onwards for lateral entry students. For lateral entry students the grades awarded in the bridge courses shall also be taken into consideration.

R.20.2 The GPA will be calculated according to the formula

gpa

Where Ci = credit for the ith course, (GP)i = the grade point obtained for the ith course (refer R.19.1) , n = total number of courses and the sum is over all the courses taken in that semester, including those in which the student has secured U and W grades.

For the cumulative grade point average (CGPA) following formula is used:

 

cgpa

R.20.3 Class/Distinction will be awarded to the students after they successfully complete the B.Tech programme as per the norms stipulated in the following table:
