In order to maintain high academic standards, MVN University has adopted a transparent policy of continuous evaluation of the students throughout the semester by holding three internal exams followed by an End Term Examination at the end of Semester with a weightage of 40:60 respectively in theory exam and 40:60 in practical exam. End term exams will be held in the month of May after the spring and in December after Autumn Semester.
Three internal midterm exams each of 30 marks will be held during the semester. Best of two midterm marks will be considered out of three. Students may appear for all three midterm examinations. Each paper of end term exam will be of 100 marks with duration of 3 hours.
University adopts a well balanced curriculum. It also has implemented Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in order to encourage the students to learn subjects of other departments of their interest. Performance during the exams is analyzed on the basis of the of SGPA and CGPA. SGPA and CGPA will be calculated on the basis of grades earned during the semester.
Students may refer to the University Ordinance to know more on evaluation system.
SGPA / CGPA Calculation
There are two types of Grade Point Averages (GPA), which are:
i. Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA)
ii. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
While SGPA is a measure for a semester performance only, CGPA is a measure of performance up to any specified semester beginning from the first semester. Every student earns a distinct SGPA and a distinct CGPA at the end of each specified semester.
a) CALCULATIONS OF SGPA FOR A SEMESTER
All the courses (except audit type and Non-Credit courses) for which a student has registered in the semester and awarded one of the A+, A, B+, B, C+, C and D grades in this semester are considered for computing SGPA.
Ci = Course Credit of the course of a semester for which SGPA is to be calculated for a student.
Pi = Grade Point earned by the student in the course.
i = 1, 2, 3, …, m, represents the number of courses passed in that semester.
b) CALCULATION OF CGPA UPTO A SEMESTER
All the courses (except audit type and Non-Credit courses) for which a student has registered upto that semester beginning from the first semester and awarded one of the A+, A, B+, B, C+, C & D grades are considered in computing the CGPA upto a specified semester.
Cj = Credit of the course in which the student has passed
Pj= Grade Point earned in the course.
j = 1, 2, 3, …, m, represent the number of courses in which the student has passed till that semester.
