Examination & Assessment

Please read the following information about the examination and assessment policies

Examinations:

  1.  
    1. Final course examinations are held after the last week of each semester.
    2. Final examinations count up to 40% (maximum) of the final grade. At least two tests or graded projects should account for the remaining percentage of the course grade.
    3. If a student absents himself/herself from a final examination a grade of zero will be reported for that examination.
    4. If, within a week, the student produces a valid excuse that is acceptable to both the department and the Students’ Affairs Office, then he/she will be given a make-up examination. If an excuse is presented after the lapse of one week, he/she may petition the division concerned to be allowed to sit for an examination and to have the grade adjusted accordingly.
    5. In case of illness or major emergency during any announced examination, a student must notify the Students’ Affairs Office at least one week of the exam date.
    6. When there are examination conflicts between MUBS classes, students must inform the Students’ Affairs Office by the deadline indicated on the tentative examination schedule.

  1.  
    1. Computation of the Grade Point Average (GPA)

      The grade point average (GPA) is the average number of quality points earned per credit in all courses taken and are assigned grades A to F. The GPA is calculated by 
      1. Multiplying the number of credits by the number of quality points assigned to the letter grade earned in each course.
      2. Adding the number of quality points earned in all courses.
      3. Dividing the total number of quality points by the total number of credits attempted.

Example: The GPA for the following five courses would be:

  1.  

    1. Semester GPA = Semester points / Semester credit hours attempted = 30 / 15 = 2.0
       
      The cumulative GPA is the ratio of all points and credits accumulated since the student started studying at MUBS University.

Incomplete Grades

The designation of an “I” on the student’s record stands for incomplete and is given only under certain conditions. This is a temporary designation and is given in circumstances such as illness or emergency. The student and the teacher arrange a written agreement specifying the required material to be completed and the due date. Incomplete courses must be completed by the following semester. For example a fall course must be completed by the end of the spring semester. If work is not completed the “I” designation will be changed to “F”.

Course Withdrawal

A student may withdraw from a course without receiving an “F” grade if withdrawal is executed before the end of the 10th week of the semester.

Repeated course

When a course is successfully repeated, the original failure will continue to appear on the transcript, but the student will not be penalized for it in the computation of the cumulative GPA.

Graduation

To qualify for graduation, students must fulfill the following requirements:
A minimum GPA of 2.0 for undergraduates (BA, BS) and 3.0 for Graduates (MBA, MS, MA).
