M. Sc degree is 2.00.
5.
A fraction of mark in
a course is to be counted as ' 1' mark e.g. 64.1 or
64.9 is to be shown as 65.
6. Letter Grade
and Grade Point for a course will be calculated according to Regulation XIV (1)
above
Example:
Examination 
Weightage 
Marks Obtained 
Mid
Semester 
35% 
20.0 
Assignment 
25% 
16.4 
Final
Examination 
40% 
35.0 
Total: 
100% 
71.4 
The
score will be rounded to 72.
Letter
Grade in this case will be 'B'
Grade
Point in this case will be 3.00
7. In order
to calculate the GPA, multiply Grade Point with the Credit Hours in each Course
obtain total grade points, add up to cumulative Grade Points and divide by the total
number of Credit Hours to get the GPA for the Semester.

Grade Point average = 2.94
Course with 'F' will be counted as 'Zero' Grade Point
for calculation of semester Grade Point Average.' Calculation of cumulative
grade point average will only be made when a candidate has passed all the
courses required for the award of degree.
The percentage of marks or values
of grades other than given grade points should not be reported on the
transcripts.
