Grading System

The grading system will be followed for UG, PG and M.Phil Courses.

Marks and Grades for UG Programmes

The grade point for each UG course is computed by dividing the Total Marks by 10. 

The following table gives the grade points and the letter grades for the total marks obtained by the candidate in each course.
