Examination and Assessment System
The undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have the Semester System with the GPA format which is very demanding and calls for consistent efforts both by faculty members and students. Under the GPA System, students are given frequent class tests/quizzes/assignments by their respective subject instructors. Performance in these class tests/quizzes/assignments carries 50% weightage towards the overall end-semester evaluation whereas the remaining 50% weightage is given to the performance in the final/end-semester examination. The faculty members record the performance of their students in Training Progress Logs which are put up to the respective Deans for their perusal/signatures as per instructions printed in these logs and practical/lab workbooks in accordance with ISO procedures.
Award of degrees/medals, re-examination, repetition of courses, improvement of grades, relegation and withdrawal are allowed as per policies promulgated by Naval Headquarters/NUST

It is the NUST policy to workout GPA by awarding relative grading on a scale of 4.00 points according to distribution curve based on the performance of a particular class by the faculty.
The performance of each student in a course of study is graded as follows:-
CALCULATION OF GPA
Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA).
The sum of grade points of all credit courses divided by total number of credit hours during a semester.
||(4x4) = 16|
||(2x3) = 06|
||(2x3.5) = 07|
|Computer & Programming
||(3x2) = 06|
|Communication & Interpersonal Skill
||(2x3) = 06|
||(2x2.5) = 05|
*Semester GPA = (Total Grade Points in Semester/Total Credit Hrs in Semester) = 46 / 15 = 3.07
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is computed for each student by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the student during his attendance at the college by the total number of credit hours he has completed in the college.
Sum of all grade points (CGPA) = Sum of all credit hours
A student who obtains one or more of the following grades in final result of a semester, is considered academically deficient, namely:-
a. An ‘F’ grade in any course.
b. Sem GPA less than 2.00.
c. Cum GPA less than 2.00.
d. ‘I’ (Incomplete) grade in any course.
Instruction in each subject is carried out through classroom lectures and practical demonstration in the laboratories in accordance with the instructional programme. During the semester, progress of the students is continuously assessed by means of assignments, monthly tests, quizzes, surprise tests and final examinations under the GPA system. At the end of each semester, examination is held according to the scheme of studies. 75% attendance in each subject is mandatory for each NUST Student to appear in the final exam. If at all, a students attendance is less than 75% in any subject he/she will be awarded ‘F’ grade in that particular subject.
Relegation means that the student is asked to join the next junior class. A student is recommended for relegation by the Faculty Board of Studies (FBoS) for approval by HQ NUST subject to one or all of the conditions listed below:
a. If his Cum GPA consistently remains below 2.00 for two consecutive semesters;
b. If a student has a total of four uncleared ‘F’ grades at any particular time during course of studies
provided he/she does not earn the same in single semester;
c. If a student fails in 3 subjects in any one semester;
d. If a student fails in a repeating/reexamination of a subject.
e. If a student fails to appear and clear the ‘F’ grades as decided by the Faculty Board of Studies without
f. On disciplinary grounds when recommended by respective FBoS/Discipline Committee of the NUST.
A student will be suspended and relegated if he/she remains absent for more than 30 but less than 45 consecutive days without valid reasons. The student will be reinstated on payment of admission fee and will join the next junior class due to relegation. The student will be required to pay 10% of tuition fee during the period of suspension.
Relegation on Long Absence in Specific Subject (s)
A student will not be allowed to appear in final exam of a subject in which his/her attendance is less than 75%, and he/she will be awarded ‘F’ grade in that subject. The ‘F’ grade(s) so obtained will only be cleared by repetition of course(s) so that the students are made to attend the missed course(s).
Withdrawal means that a student considered unsuitable for further training at the college and the admission is cancelled. A student is recommended for withdrawal by the Faculty Board of Studies for approval by HQ NUST subject to the condition listed below:
