Study/exam achievements

Students are considered pass if he/she has final score at least 40. The final score (FS) is calculated as follow :

10% softskill + 20% assignment + 20% quiz + 25% middle term + 25% final term


Final index is defined as follow:

A : 75 100

AB : 70 - 74.99

B : 65 - 69.99

BC : 60 - 64.99
