Department Guidelines (Business Admin)


Every student is required to register for an approved combination of courses with a minimum of 15 units and a maximum of 24 units per semester; with a total minimum of 164 units for the programme.


Course deliver is by lecture and tutorial. The various techniques for evaluation include quizzes, home work assignments, term paper, and end of semester examinations. The end of semester examination has 70% and others have 30%. Final year students are required to defend their project.

A letter grade and a numerical point be awarded to each student based on total scores on all the evaluation criteria. The final marks a student may score, the corresponding letter grades and the numerical points are clearly indicated as shown below.

The class of degree to be awarded is dependent upon the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is obtained by computing the grades obtained in all the courses for the semester. Where a student repeats the same course or its substitute, once or more before passing it, grades scored at each and all attempts shall be included in the computation of the Grade Point Average (GPA). Classes of degree are to be awarded depending on the CGPA obtained. The classes of degree and the required CGPA are specified under.

Letter Grade Point
70 – 100 A 5
60 – 69 B 4
50 – 59 C 3
45 – 49 D 2
40 – 44 E 1
0 – 39 F 0

Classification of the Degree

Degrees offered by the university are classified based on the cumulative grade Point Average (CGPA) obtained by the student. The details are presented below.

1st Class CGPA 4.50 – 5.00
2nd Class Upper Division CGPA 3.50 – 4.49
2nd Class Lower Division CGPA 2.40 – 3.49
3rd Class CGPA 150 – 2.39
Pass CGPA 1.00 – 1.49
Fail <1.00



To determine the quality points (QPs) obtained in each course, the credit units (CUs) assigned to course are multiplied by the grade point (GPS) earned by the student in the course. For instance, BAM 111 has 3 units, if a student scored 65% B which has 4 points, the quality point is 3 x 4 = 12. Grade point average (GPA) is obtained by dividing the quality point earned in a given semester by the credit units registered from the semester. For instance, if a student measured 68 quality in a semester that has 16 credit units, the GPA is 68/16 = 4.25.
