GATE-SHA Higher Diploma in Hotel and Restaurant Management - Grading system for GATE-SHA Higher Diploma

GRADING SYSTEM FOR GATE-SHA HIGHER DIPLOMA

 

GATE employs the official grading system of SHA. In principle the final subject grade is computed 50% on the final exam (end-term exam) and 50% on semester activities such as quizzes, tests, papers, oral examinations and/or presentations. They consist of two unit test and one mid-term exam. At the conclusion of a semester each subject teacher will have two marks between 6 (the highest) and 1 (the lowest) reflecting term work and final examination for each student. The average of the two marks gives the final subject grade. Average grades are rounded down rather than up. A student with coursework 6.0 and final examination 5.5 would have a final grade of 5.5 in that course/subject.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENT

For graduation, a student has to meet the following requirements:

 

·Satisfactory completion of all courses prescribed for the particular area of the study in which the degree is to be granted.

·A cumulative grade point average of at least 4.0.

·Completion of the prescribed courses within 5 years from the date of admission.

GRADE POINT AVERAGE ( GPA )

The grade point represents a student's performance in a course and takes the number of credits as well as the numerical value of the grade into account. To determine the GPA, the number of credits for the course is multiplied by the numerical value of the grade.

 

SESSION GRADE POINT AVERAGE (SGPA)

The session grade point average (SPGA) represents a student's overall performance for all courses in a given session. To calculate the session grade point average, the sum of GPA is divided by the sum of all course credits taken by the student during the session.

 

CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE (CGPA)

The cumulative grade point average represents the student's performance in all courses that make up his or her program of studies. To calculate the cumulative grade point average (CGPA), the sum of all grade points is divided by the sum of all course credits taken by the student which are part of his or her program of studies. Decimals are rounded to the next highest number if the third decimal is 5 or higher and to the next lowest number if the third decimal is 4 or lower.

CGPA is calculated at the end of the programme. The overall performance is reported by CGPA, which is calculated as follows:

 

CGPA = {c1g1 +c2g2+c3g3+ ……} / {c1+c2+c3+…..}

 

Where c1, c2, c3, ….. denotes credits associated with the course and g1, g2, g3, … denote grades earned by the student in the respective course.
