Depending upon academic performance, students are awarded grades A+,A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, F, I, W for each course. These grades indicate the following levels of performance.
- A Excellent
- B Good
- C Adequate
- D Minimum Acceptable
- F Failure, implying that the student must repeat
- I Incomplete
- W Withdrawn
The Grade point Average of a particular course is calculated by the formula:
GPA = ((M-50)/12) + I where M is the marks obtained in a particular course and 86 > = M >=50 The grade and the threshold levels in terms of marks for each letter grade are given as follows:Letter Grade Marks GPA
A+ 90 or above 4.00 A 86-89 4.00 A- 82-85 3.67-3.92 B+ 78-81 3.33-3.58 B 74-81 3.00-3.25 B- 70-73 2.67-2.92 C+ 66-69 2.33-2.58 C 62-65 2.00-2.25 D+ 54-57 1.33-1.58 D 50-53 1.00-1.25 F 49 or below 0.00
The grade point average calculation ensures a continuous scale for the respective grade. The grade issued by AIU will be final. Two types of average will be computed for the grade obtained by each student, the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and the cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
SGPA is the weight-age average of grade point earned in a semester. The weights are taken as the ratio of course credits to the total credits taken by the student in the semester. A student who will taken four courses in a semester withl credit hours of CI,C2,C3 and C4 obtaining grade point of P1, P2, P3 and P4 respectively will score SGPA = P1 (C1/C) + P2+(C2/C)+P3 (C3/C)+P4(C4/C) Where C=C1+C2+C3+C4
