Grading System

• Grading procedure: Concept of Relative Grading is adopted.

• Letter grades A, A-, B, B-, C, C-, D, and E, carrying grade points 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, and 2
respectively are awarded for all courses other than Project for which only Non-letter
grades namely EXCELLENT, GOOD, FAIR, and POOR are awarded.

• If a student is absent for any of the written examinations, the student will be declared
as RRA (Required to Register Again) in the course.

5
Relative Grading Procedure

• The final grading in a course is done by plotting a histogram of the total marks
obtained by all students in a particular course in a semester.
• The performance of the course will be analyzed in terms of average, highest and
lowest marks and dividing lines between various clusters. Gaps between clusters and
the nature of clusters will guide drawing the dividing lines between various grades.
• In a normal class of large size, the C grade-band will usually include the average
mark. Exceptions may arise in cases of a small class or a skewed histogram.
• Final grading will be announced only after approval by Examination Committee at
BITS, Pilani.

13
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

• The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) awarded on a 10-Point scale is used to describe
the overall performance of a student in all courses for which LETTER GRADES are awarded.

U1G1 + U2G2 + U3G3 + ... + UnGn


CGPA = ----------------------------------------------------
U1 + U2 + U3 + ... + Un
where U1, U2, U3, … Un denote the Units associated with the courses taken by the student and
G1, G2, G3, ...Gn denote Grade Points of the letter grades awarded in the respective courses.
• Non-Letter Grades DO NOT go into computation of CGPA.
