Course Assessment A student's performance is assessed in each registered course according to assessment procedure set by the college. 100 is the maximum a student may score. It is divided as follows : 1. Course work 40 marks. 2. Midterm exam 20 marks. 3. Final exam 40 marks. Grade Point Average Semester grade point average “SGPA” reflects student’s achievements in one semester; while cumulative point average “CGPA” reflects student’s achievements in all semesters. SGPA and CGPA are evaluated in AU as follows:

3.0 - 3.59 2.5 - 2.99 2.0 - 2.49 Less than 2.0

Very Good Good Satisfactory Unsatisfactory

CALCULATION of the Cumulative Grade Point Average The GPA is calculated by multiplying the grade of each course by the number of its credit hours and dividing the total by the number of total credit hours taken in the semester. The CGPA is calculated by multiplying the grade of each course by the number of its credit hours and dividing the total of all courses by the number of total credit hours taken for all semesters. By contrast, the GPA is the average of grade points of all courses in one semester, whether the student passed or failed the course. As mentioned earlier, the CGPA is the average of grade points of all courses in all semesters. Both GPA and CGPA are rounded to the nearest two decimal units. GPA and CGPA are calculated according to the following formula: GPA =

Total (credit hours per course X grades received per course) Total of credit hours per semester

CGPA =

Total (credit hours per course X grade received per course ) Total credit hours taken during all semesters
