An approximate grade breakdown of the assessment items must be prescribed in the course syllabus. Subsequent changes must be approved by the relevant head of school.
The grading system which is in accordance with the purposes and goals of BINA NUSANTARA UNIVERSITY is the Absolute Grading System. A letter summarizes the student’s academic performance in a course in a single semester and over the duration of the student’s enrolment in the course, and is grouped as follows:
|Weight||Final Score of Semester||Description|
|A||4||90 – 100||High Disctinction|
|A-||3.67||85 – 89|
|B+||3.33||80 – 84|
|B||3||75 – 79||Disctinction|
|B-||2.5||70 – 74|
|C||2||65 – 69||Pass|
|D||1||50 – 64||Near Pass|
|E||0||0 – 49||Fail|
In general, a full credit load in a single semester is between 18 and 24 units, depending on the course of study. The specific number of units may vary by semester within this range.
Students with a high grade point average may petition the Head of the Programs in which they are enrolled for permission to overload.
Acceptable Academic Performance
Standards of Academic Performance are published in the Student Handbook, available both online and from Student Services at the beginning of each academic year. In general, courses that are considered “core” courses in a major must be passed with a minimum grade of B or C, and non-core courses with a minimum grade of D. There are exceptions.
For a definition of those courses considered “core” by each major, students can contact the Head of Program. Academic misconduct and the sanctions imposed for instances of misconduct are also defined in the student handbook.
