Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Students are responsible to register courses with the approval of their advisor and to attend the classes by satisfying the attendance requirement of 70% for theoretical and 80% for application classes in order to be able to take the final exam. Evaluation is based on the grade obtained from the final exam. The final exam can be in written, oral or application form. The following grading system is used in calculation of the final grade. A Master´s student should get at least 70 out of 100 from the final exam in order to be successful. Letter Grade and Grade Points are determined as in the following: Letter Grade Grade Points Score AA 4.00 90-100 BA 3.50 85-89 BB 3.00 80-84 CB 2.50 75-79 CC 2.00 70-74 FF 0.00 0-69 G 0 K 0 D 0 Other codes used: a) G: Successful in a non-credit course, b) K: Unsuccessful in a non-credit course, c) D: Unsuccessful due to failure in attendance requirement Academic Average Assessment of a student is determined by Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). A weighted grade point is calculated by multiplying the grade point with the course credit. GPA is calculated by dividing the total amount of weighted grade points of the courses taken in the semester by the total amount of course credits. CGPA is calculated by dividing the total amount of weighted grade points of all the courses taken by the total amount of course credits. When calculating CGPA, two digits after the decimal point are taken. The number in the second digit is rounded up on condition that the number in the third digit after decimal point is five or higher.
