REGULATIONS ON ACADEMIC AFFAIRS


Grading System

 1.   The mid-term and final exams make up a total of 50% of the final grade. The breakdown of the remaining 50% is left to the discretion of individual departments. The components of the remaining 50% are quizzes, homework/assignments, class participation, and class activities such as projects, reports, and seatwork.

 

  2. The passing grade of a subject is 60% of the total grade; hence the failing grade is below 60%.
