Soft skill Attribute

Discipline, honesty, teamworkand good communication

Study/exam achievements:

Students are considered to be competent and pass if at least get 40

of maximum mark of the exams (UTS dan UAS), structured activity

(group discussion).

Final score (NA) is calculated as follow: 20% assignment + 10% softskill + 10% quiz + 25% UTS + 35% UAS


Final index is defined as follow:

A : 75 100

AB : 70 - 74.99

B : 65 - 69.99

BC : 60 - 64.99

C : 55 - 59.99

D : 40 - 54.99

E : 0 - 39.99
