The evaluation of the students depends upon the various instructional procedures taken by them. Before taking any term-end examination, the student needs to take assignment tests and other internal tests to be considered for the final examination. In most cases, the total average mark is calculated adding even the preliminary tests marks. This is the reason for the students to become confused for the students to calculate the total IGNOU percentage. This brief introduction on how to calculate the IGNOU percentage can help students who want to find out their percentage of marks in that particular field.
IGNOU university follows the below grading system for evaluate their student.
A – Excellent
B – Very Good
C – Good
D – Average
E – Unsatisfactory
However for students pursuing master’s or bachelor’s degree, the numerical grading system is followed and they are later converted into grades. For example, if a student scores a mark of 26.1, 26.2, 26.3, 26.4, then the average mark on their grade card would be 26.
Calculating IGNOU percentage can be difficult for students, since they follow a pattern. The marks are normally based on their practical, theory and assignments with weight age of 15%, 50% and 25% respectively. If you look at it, actually 70% weight age is given for theory and 30% for the assignments, but according to IGNOU calculation, the decimal values are ignored and the marks are rounded off. If you are still want to be clearer with the calculation, you can take a look at the calculation method followed printed in the BCA program guide.
For example, if the assignment marks is 88 and 88, then the average of both would be 88. As 30% of assignment marks is only considered, 30% of 88 would be 35.2, which is rounded off to 35. And, if your TEE mark is 42, then 70% of 42 would be 29. This is your theory mark. Considering both together, the total mark obtained would be 64.
If you are still doubtful about the percentage calculation, you can contact the IGNOU office by contacting on their official address given on their online website.
