Students Grades

The AASTMT adopts the credit hours system, which is based on continuous evaluation and assessment. Students’ are continuously evaluated through participation in classes, exams, quizzes, assignments, reports, projects, and other means of evaluation based on course content. A standard 4-point grading scale of which the grade point average (GPA) is calculated, and its equivalent letter grading system for student evaluation. A student’s grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points accumulated by the total number of semester hours attempted. The total score of the assessment for each course is 100 marks distributed across the semester as shown in Figure 1.1 and they are as follows: -

  •  30 marks in the 7th week
  •  20 marks in the 12th week
  •  40 marks in the final exam (16th week)
  •  Ten marks based on student participation – assessed during the entirety of the semester.

Moreover, students are required to achieve at least 30% in the final exam/assessment, which constitutes 40% of the overall grade, and students who fail to meet this condition will be awarded (F) grade in the course. The graduation Projects evaluation is based on student performance throughout the semester and the supervisor appointed by the academic department continuously evaluates their performance. Students overall performance in the graduation project is evaluated at the end of the semester by an examination panel which includes the supervisor as well as other instructors.

The general grades of a student are assigned according to the following rules as illustrated in Table 1.1 below.
