ST JOSEPH COLLEGE OF COMMERCE

Grading system

The Academic Council at its meeting on 10th March 2008 proposed to adopt the CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE SYSTEM (CGPA) for evaluation and grading. The Governing Council at its meeting on 24th April 2008 approved the same to come into effect with the 2008 B.Com batch.

The modalities and operational details of the credit system are as follows:

1. Papers are marked in the conventional way for 100 marks. 2. The Percentage obtained by a student is multiplied by the standard grade to obtain the Product.

3. The Total of the Products of all the subjects is divided by the total of all the Credits. This gives the average grade point.

4. For the sake of more common understanding the weighted average is then converted into grades.

Grade for Additional Courses

Evaluation of students is done for each of these courses. Grades will be awarded. However, the results of these courses will not be considered for Ranking. No student is eligible for his/ her degree without passing in these courses that are mandatory.

The semester grade point average (SGPA)- is the sum of the product of the credits with the grade points scored in all subjects divided by the total credits in the semester. SGPA = ΣCredits x Grade Points / Total Credits Minimum SGPA for a pass is 4. If a student has not passed in a subject or is absent then the SGPA is not assigned. The cumulative grade point average (CGPA)- is the weighted average of all the subjects undergone by a student over all the six semesters of a programme. CGPA = Σ Total credits in the Semester x SGPA / Total credits of the course. SGPA and CGPA will be rounded off to two.

Classification of Successful Candidates PG

MINIMUM FOR A PASS: A PG student has to get a minimum of 40 per cent marks in the CIA (12/30) and minimum of 40 per cent in ESE (28/70) and 40 per cent aggregate in CIA & ESE (40/100) for a pass in each subject. The minimum SGPA to qualify for the PG degree is 5.00 and a pass in all subjects.

Grade Points – The papers are marked in a conventional way for 100 marks. The marks obtained are converted to grade point according to the following table. If a student is absent for the paper the grade point assigned is 0.
