The student performance evaluation on courses in the Masters program is done as per the evaluation scheme of the university. The following evaluation scheme applies.

Evaluation Scheme


The academic performance of the students will be judged through continuous assessment, and final assessment. The continuous assessment of the student will be made by the concerned faculty member in any or a combination of the following:

  • Written tests
  • Assignments and reports
  • Seminars
  • Term papers
  • Any other deemed suitable by the concerned faculty member

The final assessment will normally be conducted according to the examination schedule notified by the concerned office for a distributed course and at the end of course for an intensive type course.

The mode of evaluation in a given course is decided by the concerned faculty member who may assign varying weights to one or more of the evaluation modes.  The faculty member shall normally announce such weights in the beginning of the course. 


A dissertation in topic connected with a student’s special discipline is a necessary requirement for the successful completion of Master of Engineering degree. The candidate must have achieved result of significance in the dissertation work and must indicate an ability to express oneself in satisfactory style, both in written and oral.

Normally the dissertation shall be submitted at the end of the final semester. However, upon the recommendation of the supervisor, and subject to the approval of the Research Committee of the School, only one term extension of six months can be granted to a student if he/she requires so. The student will receive a satisfactory or unsatisfactory grade and must have a satisfactory to qualify.

Grading Modes

In each course, student will be evaluated on a 4 point scale as follows:

Grade             A    A-     B+    B-    C+    C      F

Grade Point  4    3.7   3.3    3     2.3    2      0

Apart from the letter grades mentioned above, the following letter grade can also be awarded

  • W     =            Withdrawn
  • NC   =            Non Credit Course
  • INC  =            Incomplete
  • S     =            Satisfactory
  • U     =            Unsatisfactory
  • AU  =             Audit

W - Indicates that a student has officially withdrawn from a course without grade or penalty. During the regular semester, a student seeking to withdraw from a course must do so before the final examination with the permission of the concerned faculty member. ‘W’ may not be processed after the final examination.

NC - Indicates that student has officially attended a course till the end and completed it successfully but for which no credit will be given. A student can take a non-credit course only in addition to the credit hours required for the fulfillment of Master of Engineering degree.

INC - Indicates that a student has not completed all the assignments required in the particular course. ‘INC’ becomes ‘F’ if the student does not complete the required work before the deadline agreed upon with the concerned faculty. A maximum of 6 months will be allowed for ‘ INC’ removal.

S - Indicates completion of dissertation at satisfactory level. ‘U’ designation indicates dissertation was not completed at a satisfactory level.

AU - Indicates completion of credit course on top of the required credited courses.

Graduation Requirement

To graduate a student must achieve the following

  • Completion of the minimum number of required course credit hours with not less than C grade in each course.
  • A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 in every semester and a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 3.0.
  • Completion of oral defense of dissertation at satisfactory level.

Failures and Dismissal

A student must maintain a semester grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or above at the end of each semester failing which he will be subject to dismissal from the program. There will be no re-examination for any student who is absent during the final assessment. Absence will be considered incomplete.

Publication of Results: Soon after the final examination is over, results are published in the university notice-boards and also made available on the internet at the following address: http://www.ku.edu.np/exam/index.php.
