In some rare and unusual circumstances, if a student is unable to complete all the required works for the course, he/she may be temporarily marked with an incomplete grade “I”. If all the required works are not completed within the following semester, the letter “I” will be automatically converted into “F”. The performance of a student is evaluated in terms of the following two indices:
The semester grade point average (SGPA) which is the grade point average for the semester and is given by:
SGPA = Total honor points earned in a semester/ total number of credit hours taken in a semester.
• The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) which is the grade point average for all completed semester and is given by:
CGPA =:: Cumulative total honor points earned/ cumulative total number of credit hours taken.
Up to 25% of the total credit hours of the courses completed in an equivalent program of a recognized institution may be transferred! waived for credit on the recommendation of the principal of the college. For the credit transfer, a student must receive a “8” or above grade in
respective course. Courses taken earlier than five years from the time of transfer may not be
accepted for the credit transfer. However, a student transferring from one program to another
program of Pokhara University may receive a credit transfer of all the compatible courses
completed with at least a “C” grade.
Students are required to do an independent capstone project that involves fieldwork and its
empirical analysis. At the end, the students must prepare a report of this work in the prescribed
format and submit it to the authorized person/body. The objective of these project works is to
develop students’ skills in research, particularly in areas of data collection, processing, analysis,
and report writing. These reports will be evaluated by the concerned authority.
Students need to do an internship as approved by the college. The purpose of internship is to
provide students with the real-life, on-the-job exposure and an opportunity to apply theoretical
concepts in real-life situation. Students’ interest and intended area of concentration are taken into
account while making the internship placement decisions.

• complete the internship with ‘Pass’ grade,
