Examination System

The performance of a student is made through continuous evaluation that comprises attendance and participation in the classes, assignments, class tests, mid-term exam, and final exam. Lab-based courses are evaluated through lab tasks assigned by the teachers.
MU follows the grading system approved by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh.

Letter grades indicating the quality of course work completed is interpreted as follows:

Numerical Score Letter Grade Grade points per Credit
80 and above A+ 4.00
75 to Less than 80 A 3.75
70 to Less than 75 A- 3.50
65 to Less than 70 B+ 3.25
60 to Less than 65 B 3.00
55 to Less than 60 B- 2.75
50 to Less than 55 C+ 2.50
45 to Less than 50 C 2.25
40 to Less than 45 D 2.00
Less than 40 F* Failure 0.00
I** Incomplete 0.00
W** Withdrawal 0.00
S** Supplementary 0.00
AB Absence 0.00

**Credits for courses with this grade can not apply for graduation and marks will not be included in the calculation of grade point average.

The ‘+’ and ‘-‘ has a value of 0.25 grade point.

Grade Point Average(GPA) is computed in the following method:

GPA = Sum of(Grade points x Credits) /Sum of credits attempted.

The course in which a student has obtained ‘D’ or higher grade will be counted as earned credit hours. Any course in which a student has scored ‘F’ grade will not be counted towards her/his earned credit. In such case she/he will have to retake the course.

Mid-term Exam 30
Class Test 20
Attendance and participation 10
Final Exam 40
Total 10o

For some appalling reasons (e.g., serious illness, fatal accident, death of near and dear ones, etc) a student may apply with evidence to the head of his/her department through her/his course teacher to remain absent from an exam on due date. If convinced, he /she will be given an Incomplete (I) grade in that course. The student has to take initiative to sit for a make- up exam and remove his/her ‘I’ grade within one month of the next term. If she/he fails to do so, her/his ‘I’ grade will be automatically converted into an ‘F’ grade.

1. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in all courses.

2. Completion of required number of credits of the relevant program.

3. For undergraduate programs, a minimum of 50 percent of the required credits earned at Metropolitan University.

4. For graduate programs, fulfillment of full residency requirement.
