Grading System:

Students are given letter grade in each course equivalent to a certain number of grade points. The University of Asia Pacific (UAP) follows the letter grades and grade points similar to those introduced by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in the uniform grading system for all the public and private universities of Bangladesh. The Letter grades and their corresponding grade points are as follows:

Numerical Grade

Letter Grade

Grade Point

80% and above


(A Plus)


75% to less than 80%


(A Regular)


70% to less than 75%


(A Minus)


65% to less than 70%


(B Plus)


60% to less than 65%


(B Regular)


55% to less than 60%


(B Minus)


50% to less than 55%


(C Plus)


45% to less than 50%


(C Regular)


40% to less than 45%




Less than 40%












Grade ‘E’:    Grade ‘E’ means Exemption. A student admitted to the UAP with credits earned by him or her in other university/Academic Institution and are therefore exempted at the UAP.

Grade ‘I’:     Grade ‘I’ means incomplete work. Grade ‘I’ may be given to a candidate when s/he fails to appear at the semester final examinations only for reasons beyond his/her control. Grade `I' shall be converted to the actual grade obtained by the students when available by the following semester. Otherwise grade ‘I’ shall be converted to an ‘F’ grade and the student has to register for the particular course with payment of usual fees.

Calculation of Grade Point Average (CGPA):

A student’s performance is evaluated by the number of credits that s/he has completed satisfactorily and the weighted average of the grade points that s/he has achieved. The Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed in the following manner:


The grade points are points against letter grades A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C and D. Credits are for those courses attempted at this university only.

If a student fails to achieve at least 40% mark in a course S/he will get ‘F’ grade in that course. Absence in the final examination held at the end of each academic semester will also result in ‘F’ grade.

Academic Transcript:

Academic Transcript contains the courses studied, Credit(s), grade(s), GPA’s and CGPA’s earned or obtained by the student at this University. The credits earned at an institution other than the UAP shall be shown separately.

Repeat Examinations:

A student would be allowed to appear at the Repeat Examinations in case s/he fails in three theory courses or less but not exceeding 10 credit hours. The results of Repeat Examinations would be published within three weeks from the date of publication of the results of the Semester Final Examination concerned.

Repeat Examinations on theory courses would be held on 50 percent of marks for each course and the marks for Class Assessment and Mid Semester Examination would be carried. There shall be no repeat examinations for sessional courses. The maximum grade
to be obtained by a student in a repeat examination would be ‘B’- (equivalent to 60%).

The following grading system would be followed in the repeat examinations:

60% and above           :           B­         (B Regular)
55% to less than 60%  :           B-        (B Minus)
50% to less than 55%  :           C+       (C Plus)
45% to less than 50%  :           C­         (C Regular)
40% to less than 45%  :           D        
Less than 40%             :           F         

Re-examination of Answer Scripts:

Re-examination of final examination answer scripts may be permissible. A candidate can apply for re-examination of any answer script of final examination to the Controller of Examinations through their advisor and the head of the department on payment of Tk.200/- (two hundred) only per script within 7 (seven) working days from the publication of final results. No such application shall be entertained after the time. While re-examining such answer scripts the examiner shall re-examine the scripts thoroughly and shall award a grade, which shall be treated as final.

Improvement of Grades:

The provision for improvement of grades applies to those only who obtained a grade C or lower in any course. Such candidates may be allowed to improve their grades by surrendering the earlier grade obtained by him or her. This provision for improvement of grades in any semester final examination can be divided into two categories:

Category A:

1.   For improvement of grades, a student will be allowed to repeat a maximum of four courses during this four-year programme.

2.   For availing such provision of grade improvement a candidate will apply to the Controller of the Examinations through the Head of the department with a fee of Tk.3,000 /- (taka three thousand only) per credit hour. A student may apply for such provision any time during his or her study in the University of Asia Pacific but not beyond two weeks after the publication of his/her final semester results.        

Category B:

1.   A cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of minimum 2.25 is required for graduation. A candidate whose CGPA is below 2.25 shall have to increase his or her CGPA to the minimum requirement within two consecutive semesters failing which S/he shall be placed under academic provision.

2.   Candidates requiring to increase their CGPA under this category shall apply to the Controller of Examinations throuah the Head of the Department concerned with the payment of Tk.3,000/- (taka three thousand only) per credit hour.
