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 BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL 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 Distinction|
|A-||3.67||85 – 89|
|B+||3.33||80 – 84|
|B||3||75 – 79||Distinction|
|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.
At BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL, 1 credits equals to 36-48 hours/semester with 1 teaching hour consists of 50 minutes/week.
Study load in one semester can be determined by individual ability and by looking at the students’ results from the last semester, which are measured by Semester Grade Point Average (IPS/GPS), or all of the semesters by Cumulative Grade Point Average (IPK/GPA).
Semester Grade Point Average (IPS/GPS) is counted as follow:
Cumulative Grade Point Average (IPK/GPA) is counted as follow:
K = Number of credits taken in related semester
N = Weight of each subject taken
M = Conversion Value (K x N)
L = Number of pass credits
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 the prescribed minimum grade.
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.
