Students are expected to meet the pass mark of 60% in all subjects. Failure to achieve an overall average of 60% will result in the student being placed on academic probation. If there is no improvement, the student may be asked to repeat the grade on a probationary basis or withdraw from the institution.

 

The following system of letter and non-letter grades is used to evaluate student work:
