FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
  • Passing marks for degree engineering (B.E.) is simple and straight forward.
  • Marks will be converted to grade and then to grade point.
Particulars Marks Passing Marks
Mid Semester Test conducted by Institutes 30 12
GTU End Semester Examination 70 23
Total 100 35
Term Work, Practical, Attendance, etc. 50 25
Marks 85 to 100 75 to 84 65 to 74 55 to 64 45 to 54 40 to 44 35 to 39 Less than 35
Grade AA AB BB BC CC CD DD FF
Grade Points 10 09 08 07 06 05 04 00

  • Where SPI is Semester Performance Index,
  • C is the credit of particular subject
  • G is the grade point obtained by the student.
  • Credit of the subject is multiplied with grade point and then SPI is calculated.
Example :
» Suppose you have scored marks as below,
Subject Credit Marks Grade Grade Point Credit * Grade Point
Maths - 1 5 87 AA 10 50
CPU 6 72 BB 8 48
MOS 5 68 BB 8 40
ES 3 78 AB 9 27
Physics 5 63 BC 7 35
Total 24       200
SPI =

SUM (Credit * Grade Point) /

SUM (Credit)
= 200/24
= 8.33
  • So Your SPI is 8.33
  • If student fails in the examinations then he/she may take remedial university examinations to be held during mid semester exams.
  • SPI is semester performance index and it represents performance of a student for 1 semester.
  • CPI is cumulative performance index and it represents performance of a student of all semesters.
  • CPI is calculated same as SPI but it considers all results instead of 1 semester.
  • Class and Distinction will be awarded based on CPI. (Results of all semesters will be considered)
  • At any point of time, student can have maximum 4 backlogs (FF) pending excluding immediate previous semester.
  • If backlogs are more than 4 than new subjects will not be allocated and he/she is detained for one year.
  • Example: Suppose you have 2 backlogs in Sem-I, 1 backlog in Sem-II and 3 backlogs in Sem-III and you are studying in 4th semester. Now Total Backlog = 6 but for detain purpose only 3 will be counted and you are not detained. But when you reach to 5th sem then all the backlogs before Sem-IV will be counted and if you have not cleared any of previous backlogs then you are detained.
  • Minimum 75% attendance is must to fill GTU Examination form and to appear in End Semester or External Examination.
  • 10% of total absentia of students due to illness may be considered by Institute.
  • Example: If you are absent for 20 days due to illness then present of only 2 days will be considered.
The proposed structure for the award of Degree engineering is as follows.
CPI Equiv. % of Marks Class
5.5 or above 50 Second Class
6.5 or above 60 First Class
7.1 or above 70 Distinction Class
