RGPV Grading System marks, grace marks and rule for sem back

5/5 (8) (Last Updated On: 17/12/2017)

Educational Qualification for admission in Engineering course

Candidate should have passed Higher Secondary School Certificate Examination (10+2) (or equivalent exam) scheme with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Candidate should have secured pass marks in these three subjects individually.


There will be one University Examination at the end of each semester. In every year there will be two semesters and in total there will be four years consisting eight semesters. The semester examination (consisting of end semester of theory and practical) will generally be held in December and May in each year.


Promotion of students to the higher class will be done in accordance with the following rules:

A student who takes admission in odd semester of an academic year is said to be in A-B group (a student of A-B Group will take admission generally in July). A student who takes admission in even semester of an academic year is said to be in B-A group (A student of B-A Group will take admission generally in January).

A candidate who has taken admission in A-B Group (student will appear in odd sem exam) will be promoted to even semester of that year without consideration of failing in any number of subjects of odd semester.

To pass a particular subject of the course the minimum required grade is D. Theory and practical parts of the subject are treated as separate subjects.


A student who fails in more than five subjects (Theory and Practical of the same subject shall be treated as two subjects) in a particular year, shall not be promoted to the next higher year. Example: Suppose you are failed in 6 subjects of first year (First Sem + Second Sem), you will not be allowed to take exams of third semester. Thus your third sem will be back. You will be required to take the exams of back subjects (6 subjects) first. Still you are failed in 6 back subjects, you will not be allowed to take exams of fourth sem. Thus your fourth sem will also be back. Your third and fourth semesters are back and you will be a year back student. However, if you have cleared one subject out of 6 subjects, you will be allowed to take exams of fourth sem. You will become BA group student.

A student shall not be admitted in the fifth semester (Third year) classes if he/she has not fully passed the first year examination with minimum of CGPA of 5.0.

A student shall not be admitted in seventh semester ( Fourth year) classes if he/she has not fully passed first and second year exams with minimum CGPA of 5.0.

If a student has failed to score a minimum CGPA of 5.0 shall be permitted to improve requisite grade point by reappearing in maximum of three subjects (theory and practical of a subject shall be treated as separate subjects).

For the award of degree minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) required is 5.0.

A student who has taken admission in even semester under B-A Group (student will appear in even sem exam) will be promoted to next applicable odd semester without consideration of failing in any number of subjects of even semester.

See RGPV Challenge Form


The distribution of weightage /marks for theory and practical component is given below:

Theory Block

Sr. No. Perticulars weightage %
1 Quizzes, assignments and regularity 10%
2 Mid – semester test 20%
3 End – semester Exam 70%
Total 100%

Practical Block

Sr. No. Perticulars weightage %
1 Lab work and performance, quizzes,
assignments and regularity
2 End – semester examination 60%
Total 100%

Practical training, and project work shall be treated as practical subjects.
In each semester, the institute will be required to conduct at least two mid semester tests for theory block.

Each student, registered for a course, shall be awarded grade by the concerned faculty / faculties for the specific subject/paper. The grades awarded to a student shall depend upon his continuous evaluation through performance in various examinations, assignments, quizzes, laboratory work, class work, mid semester test and regularity. The grades to be used and their numerical equivalents are as under :

Credit Based Grading System Marks Distribution

Grade %Marks range (based on
absolute marks system)
Grade Point Description of
A+ 91-100 10 Outstanding
A 81-90 9 Excellent
B+ 71-80 8 V. Good
B 61-70 7 Good
C+ 51-60 6 Average
C 41-50 5 Satisfactory
D 31-40 4 Marginal
F 30 AND Below 0 Fail
I 0 Incomplete
W 0 Withdrawal

From the above table it is clear that passing marks are 31%. From this passing marks out of 70 is equal to 70x 31/100 = 21.7 which is 22 marks.

Link The Semester Grade Points Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)


At the end of each even semester examination the grade sheet for students of A-B group (odd semester, for students of B-A group) shall also show CGPA till end of that semester. The final examination grade sheet at the end of final semester examination of the course shall also indicate CGPA, equivalent percentage marks and the division awarded.

A candidate appearing in seventh semester after eighth semester (B-A group) will not be issued any Grade Sheet or Provisional Certificate after eighth semester until he has passed all the semesters.


Grace up to five marks can be given to the student for passing the examinations. The grace marks can be given in not more than two subjects (theory and practical of the same subject shall be considered as two separate subjects).

If the student is failing/missing distinction/missing first division by one mark, he / she will be given grace of one mark. This benefit will not, however, be available to a candidate getting advantage as mentioned above.


Division shall be awarded only after the eighth (Seventh semester for candidates of B-A group) and final semester examination based on integrated performance of the candidate for all the four years as per following details The conversion from grade to an equivalent percentage in a given
academic program shall be according to the following formula applicable.

rgpv cgpa to percentage can be calculated by Percentage of marks scored= CGPA Obtained x 10

CGPA Scored Division
7.5 ≤ CGPA First Division With Honours
6.5 ≤ CGPA < 7.5 First Division
5.0 ≤ CGPA < 6.5 Second Division



In every semester there shall be minimum fourteen weeks of teaching. One credit means one hour of conduct in Lecturer (L) / Tutorial (T) / Practical (P) per week.
A student may provisionally be allowed to attend classes of next higher semester if result of previous sem is not declared. However, the student cannot claim any right on the basis of his/her provisional admission, if he/she is not able to clear qualifying semester examination.

The maximum duration of the course shall be eight years. However, for one mercy attempt the para 24.1.4 of the Ordinance No.12: “Examination General” shall be applicable.


After the main examination of the eighth semester merit list of first ten (10) candidates shall be declared by the University. The merit list shall be seperate for each branch. The merit list will be prepared on the basis of the integrated performance of the students for all the four years. Students securing first division and passing all semesters in single attempts will be considered for merit.


Attendance of students should not be less than 75 % of the lectures delivered and the practical classes held separately in each subject.

A short fall in attendance upto 10% can be condoned by the principal of the college for satisfactory reasons.

A short fall in attendance upto 5% can be condoned Vice-Chancellor of the University for satisfactory reasons.


The medium of instruction and examination shall be English throughout the course of study.
The subjects to be studied in different semester of Bachelor of Engineering shall be as per the Schemes, approved by Board of Studies.
