Evaluation System & Exams

The student conducts an exam at the end of each semester for the courses that he registered for during the registration period and were not deleted during the period of course deletion, without prejudice to the minimum registration for one semester.

The student is prevented from sitting for the exam in all or some of the courses by a decision of the Institute’s Council upon a request from the academic advisor and a suggestion from the Institute’s Council: if his attendance at lectures and exercises is less than 75% of the actual total hours. In this case, the student is considered a failure in the courses and prohibited from the exam.

The duration of the final examination for any of the academic courses does not exceed 3 hours, and the oral examination system is applied at the end of the semester for all subjects.

An exam is held for each course at the end of a semester, and this exam represents 60% of the assessment for each semester. Classwork represents 20%, and oral and practical sessions at the end of the semester represent the remaining 20%. Classwork includes labs, reports, periodic exams, and research. As for the bachelor project, the year’s works represent 60% of the evaluation and 40% of the discussion at the end of the year.

The student’s final grade is calculated on the cumulative basis of his total grades in the semesters.

 The average score will be calculated as follows:

♦ A student is not considered successful in any course unless he obtains a grade of at least D.

♦ The points of each course are calculated as the number of credit hours multiplied by the points for each hour.

♦ The total points obtained by the student in any semester are calculated as the sum of the points of all the courses he studied in that semester.

♦ The average score for any semester is calculated as the result of dividing the total points obtained by the student in this semester, divided by the total credit hours for these courses.

♦ The course in which the student gets a grade less than D, he repeats it again until he succeeds in it, and his grade in it is calculated with a maximum of C.

♦ The average graduation points (after his success in all graduation requirements) are calculated as the result of dividing the sum of the total points of all courses that a student studied on the total credit hours for these courses.
