BU to introduce CGPA grading system for UG courses


Bangalore University, has decided to withdraw the current grading system for Internal Assessment (IA) and introduce Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) from the next academic year 2015-16.

Since the CGPA system is new to the students, the University has decided to continue with both CGPA and existing grading system for now.

To implement CGPA system, the University is switching back to the old system, which has 30 marks for Internal Assessment (IA) and 70 marks for theory examinations.

Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda said, "We would like to bring in holistic approach to the courses and till the CGPA gets familiar among students we will declare results in both forms."

BU will have four-year under-graduate programmes. If they exit after two years, they get a diploma or associated degree. If they study for three years, they get a Bachelor's degree and after four years, they get a Bachelor's degree with honours

After honours degree, the Master's course will be for one year. Each course has a certain number of credits. A two-year programme has 64 credits, a three-year programme 104 credits and four-year one has 154 credits.
