F 0.0                Fail

Apart from the letter grades mentioned above, the following letter grades can also be awarded

W = Withdrawn

I = Incomplete

NC = Non Credit Course

 

‘W’ indicates that a student has officially withdrawn from a course without grade or penalty. During the regular term, a student seeking to withdraw from a course must do so before the final examination with the permission of the concerned faculty member. ‘W’ may not be processed after the final examination. A student can take non-credit course only in addition to the credit hours required for the fulfillment of MFC degree. ‘I’ indicates that a student has not completed all the assignments required in the particular course. A student’s overall academic performance will be evaluated through Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is calculates as following:

Cumulative total honors points earned

CGPA = ______________________________________

Cumulative total number of credit hours taken

 

Basic Degree Requirements

In order to graduate a student is required to maintain at least a 3.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). No student can graduate with ‘F’ in any particular course. The maximum time allowed to complete the MFC degree is four year from the date of admission into the Program.

Distinction and Dean’s List

A student who obtains a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better will receive the MFC  degree with distinction. The Dean’s list recognizes outstanding academic performance in the FOM. To qualify to this list, a student must have a CGPA of 3.80 or better.

Credit Transfer and Withdrawal

Tribhuvan University allows transfer of credits earned by a student in other equivalent programs of recognized universities. Transfer of a maximum of 25 credit hours for courses taken in an equivalent institution with grades not lower than ‘B’ may be granted. Courses taken more than five years earlier may not be accepted for transfer of credit. Credit transfer is also allowed from different programs. In such cases, all credits earned by the students in compatible courses with a minimum grade of ‘B” could be transferred to the new program. In all cases, the Dean reserves the right to grant or not to grant credit transfer.

Failures, Probation and Dismissal

A student must maintain a Term Grade Point Average (TGPA) of 3.00 or above at the end of each term, failing which he will be placed on academic probation and is required to improve his CGPA in the following term. If he fails to improve his CGPA by the end of the following term as well, he will be subject to dismissal from MFC Program.

 

No student can graduate with ‘F’ in any particular course. If a student gets ‘F’ in any course, he is required to repeat at the course whenever offered by the institute. A student will be subject to dismissal from the MFC Program if he/she gets more than two ‘F’s in any term.

The concerned faculty member may award a temporary grade ‘I’ to a student for incomplete work. The case concerning ‘I’ grade must be settled by the student in consultation with the concerned faculty member within the following term in the course, failing which the concerned office will automatically convert the ‘I’ grade into ‘F’ grade.

Repeating a Course

A course is to be taken only once for grade, except when a student receives a ‘B-‘ or ‘C+’ or ‘C’ grade. Since passing all courses individually is a degree requirement, the student must retake the failing course when offered and must successfully complete the course.

Retaking a course in which a student has earned ‘B-‘ or ‘C+’ or ‘C’ grade is optional. In such a case, the student may be allowed to retake a course to achieve a minimum CGPA of 3.0. However, a student cannot retake a particular course more than two times. The grade earned on the retake will be substituted for the grade earned earlier in the course. This provision will not be applicable for project work.

Attendance Requirements

A student must attend every lecture, tutorial; and practical class. However, to accommodate for late registration, sickness and other contingencies the attendance requirements will be a minimum of 80 percent of the class actually held.

Unfair Means

Students are strictly forbidden from adopting unfair means in class assignments, tests, report-writing and final examination. The following would be considered as adoption of unfair means during examination:

• Communicating with fellow students for obtaining help

• Copying from another student’s script/report/paper

• Copying from disk, mobile, palm of hand or other incriminating documents

and equipment

• Possession of any incriminating documents, whether used or not

• Any approach in direct or indirect form to influence teacher concerning grade

• Unruly behavior which disrupts academic program

A student may be given an ‘F’ grade at the discretion of the Examination Board, Dean’s Office, in case he is found using unfair means by the instructor. Adoption of unfair means may result in the dismissal of the student from the program and expulsion of the student from the college/institute and as such from Tribhuvan University.
