of Engineering in Computer and Electronics, Bachelor of Information Management, Bachelor of Information Systems, Bachelor of Computer Application of their equivalent.


All the courses, seminar, Literature Review Research, and Project/ Thesis should have internal weightage of 40% and external weightage of 60%. A student should secure minimum of 50% in overall weightage to pass a course. The final grade point in each course will be the sum of overall weightage of in all categories.

The Seminar, Literature Review Research, and Project/Thesis are evaluated by different evaluators. To pass these, students should secure at least 50% marks in the evaluation of each evaluator and the final grade point will be the sum of all the evaluations. For the evaluation of final presentations, an external examiner will be assigned.

Grading System:

The grade awarded to each student in each course is based on his/her overall performance through internal and external evaluations. Several evaluation criteria are used for the continuous internal evaluation. External evaluation is solely based on examination conducted by Institute of Science and Technology (IoST). The grade in each course is assigned using a letter grade that indicates the overall performance of each student in each course. The chart below represents letters with its corresponding grading scale, grade point, and performance remarks.

Letter GradeGrading ScaleGrade PointPerformance Remarks
A-80 – less than 903.7Very Good
B+70 – less than 803.3First Division
B60 – less than 703Second Division
B-50 – less than 602.7Pass in individual subject
F0 – less than 500Fail

The performance of each student in each semester shall be evaluated in terms of Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) which is the grade point average for the semester. SGPA is calculated as

       Total Grade Points earned in a Semester        


Total number of credits earned in the semester

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is the grade point average for all completed semesters. CGPA is calculated as

         Total Grade Points earned          


Total number of credits completed

Final Examination:

Institute of Science and Technology, Tribhuvan University, will conduct the final examination at the end of each semester for each course except Seminar, Literature review research, and Project/Thesis. The weightage of this final examination is 60% of the overall weightage.
