Grading Sytem

  • Riara University uses the Grade Point Average (GPA) system.
  • Trimester GPA is a measure of performance of a student for a session. A GPA is a number between 0 and 4 inclusive. Cumulative GPA (CGPA) is a measure of performance of a student for a number of trimesters.
  • Like a Trimester GPA, the Cumulative GPA is a number between 0 and 4 inclusive.
  • Each course is assessed based on the Continuous Assessment Tests (30%) and the Trimester Examinations (70%) and given a letter grade. The letter grade F denotes a failure grade and has a numerical value of zero.
  • The letter grades with their corresponding numerical values (including pluses), form a ten-step grade-point scale.
