Credit units are assigned to each module depending on the number of hours per week allocated to the module. Students are graded based on the performance of both the continuous assessment and examinable modules.
The performance of students in each module will be graded as follows:
The number of distinction grades to be awarded for each module should be around 5% of the students who have sat for the module. However, the cutoff mark for the distinction grade should apply to all candidates who achieve that same mark, irrespectively of the number of candidates
Grade Point Average (GPA) is used to measure the academic standing of a student. The Current GPA is calculated based on the graded modules taken in that semester.
The method of computing the Current GPA for six modules with one non-graded module, in a particular semester, is shown in the example below.
Note : Non-graded Module F is excluded in the calculation. Student failed Module E
