Credit System

Each course is assigned a certain number of credits depending generally upon its lecture, tutorial and practical work hours in a week. In theory subjects, one lecture per week is assigned one credit as a general rule.

Academic Schedule

The academic session of the University consists of two semesters per year. For the Bachelor’s program in science and technology, student admission is commenced by the university as per the academic calendar. Mid-Western University publishes its yearly academic calendar and campus is required to follow the calendar. Mid-Western Universitys’ academic calendar of academic year 2020/2021 is available with this link.

Student Evaluation

The students’ academic performance during a semester is evaluated using the system of continuous assessment (evaluation of sessional work plus the final examination). The campus and the University conduct the sessional works and the final examinations, respectively.

Each course shall have sessional marks of 40% evaluated by the assigned teacher. Generally, each course will have a written semester examination of 60% marks at the end of each semester. In the Practical courses, no final examination will be conducted and the sessional marks shall be awarded on the basis of continual assessment. Normally, final examinations are not conducted in elective courses and in courses which are offered as intensive courses conducted by reputed international scholars.

To pass in a subject, a student must obtain a minimum of D- grade in that subject in sessional work and the final examination, separately.

Grading System

The grade (marks) awarded to a student in a course is based on his/her consolidated performance in Internal and final examinations. The letter grade in any particular subject is an indication of a student’s relative performance in that course. The pattern of grading is as follows:

Grade  AA-BB-CC-DD-F
Grade point4.003.673.333.002.502.001.501.000.00

The performance of a student in a semester shall be evaluated in terms of the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) which is the grade point average for the semester. The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is the grade point average for all completed semesters.

SGPA = total honor points earned in a semester / total number of credits registered in a semester

CGPA = total honor points earned / total number of credits completed

Attendance Requirement

The students must attend every lecture, tutorial and practical classes. However, to accommodate for sickness and other contingencies, the attendance requirement will be a minimum of 80% of the classes actually held. If a student fails to attend 80% of the classes in any particular subject, he/she will not be allowed to take the final examination in that subject. If a student is continuously absent from the campus for more than four weeks without notifying the chief, his/her name will be removed from the campus roll.
