Credit Based Grading System for MMS First Year Semester End Examinations
Credit Point:
A Credit Point denotes the quantum of effort required to be put in by a student, who takes up a course. In other words, it is an index of number of learning hours prescribed for a certain segment of learning.

Learning Hours
Learning Hours for Subjects of 100 Marks (60+40)
Learning Hours consist of Classroom teaching hours and other complementary
learning activities indicated here below
1) Classroom teaching hours ((15 Sessions X 3 Hours = 45 Hours)) 2) Other Complementary learning activities (15 Hours)
The learning activities consist of the following:
Reading, Introspection, Thoughtful Reflection, Group Discussions, Lectures, Field Work, Workshops, Counseling Sessions, Watching Educational and Informative Videos, Assignments, Live Projects, Case Studies, Presentations, Preparation for Examinations, Participation in academic and extra – curricular activities, inculcation of industry specific skills and training & development sessions. The total learning hours would be thus equivalent to 45+15=60 Hours for subjects of 100 Marks

Learning Hours for Subjects of 50 Marks (30+20)
Learning Hours consist of Classroom teaching hours and other complementary learning activities indicated here below
1) Classroom teaching hours ((09 Sessions X 3 Hours = 27 Hours)) 2) Other Complementary learning activities (03 Hours)
The learning activities consist of the following:
Reading, Introspection, Thoughtful Reflection, Group Discussions, Lectures, Field Work, Workshops, Counseling Sessions, Watching Educational and Informative Videos, Assignments, Live Projects, Case Studies, Presentations, Preparation for Examinations, Participation in academic and extra – curricular activities, inculcation of industry specific skills and training & development sessions. The total learning hours would be thus equivalent to 27+03=30 Hours for subjects of 50 Marks

Credit Point Computation
One credit is construed as equivalent to 30 learning hours.
Credit completion and Credit accumulation:
Each module of an academic program has been assigned specific credit points defining successful completion of the course under study.
Credit completion or Credit acquisition may be considered to take place after the learner has successfully cleared all the evaluation criteria with respect to a single course.

A learner who successfully completes a 2 CP (Credit Point) course is treated to have collected or acquired 2 credits. His performance above the minimum prescribed level (viz. grades / marks obtained) has no bearing on the number of credits collected or acquired.

A learner keeps on accumulating more credits as he completes additional courses. Introduction of Grading System at the University of Mumbai
A well designed evaluation system that integrates the aforesaid parameters having due attention to their relative importance in the context of the given academic programme. What is Grading?
Grading, in the educational context is a method of reporting the result of a learner’s performance subsequent to his evaluation. It involves a set of alphabets which are clearly defined and designated and uniformly understood by all the stake holders. A properly introduced grading system not only provides for a comparison of the learners’ performance but it also indicates the quality of performance with respect to the amount of efforts put in and the amount of knowledge acquired at the end of the course by the learners.

The Seven Point Grading System
A series of meetings of all the Deans & Controller of Examinations were held to discuss the system of grading to be adopted at the post graduate level. Mumbai University, subsequently in its Academic Council meeting and in its Management Council meeting resolved to adopt and implement the Seven (07) Point Grading System from the academic year 2012-13.

The Grade Point and the grade allocation shall be as per the Grade Table given below:

Note: – Consider 1 Grade Point is equal to Zero for CG calculations in respect of failed learner/s in the concerned course/s.
Conversion of Marks to Grades and Calculations of GPA (Grade Point Average)
In the Credit and Grade Point System, the assessment of individual Courses in the concerned examinations will be only on the basis of marks obtained; however these marks shall be converted later into Grades by a mechanism wherein the overall performance of the Learners can be reflected by the
overall evaluation in terms of Grades.

Abbreviations used for gradation needs understanding of each and every parameter involved in grade computation and the evaluation mechanism. The abbreviations and formulas used are as follows:-

Abbreviations and Formula’s Used:G: Grade
GP: Grade Points
C: Credits
CP: Credit Points
CG: Credits X Grades (Product of credits & Grades)
?CG: Sum of Product of Credits & Grades points
?C: Sum of Credits points
SGPA = ?CG
—–?C
SGPA: Semester Grade Point Average shall be calculated for individual semesters. (It is also designated as GPA)
CGPA: Cumulative Grade Point Average shall be calculated for the entire Programme by considering all the semesters taken together.
Special Point to Note:
While calculating the CG the value of Grade Point 1 shall be considered as Zero (0) in case of learners who failed in the concerned course/s obtaining marks below 50. After calculating the SGPA for an individual semester and the CGPA for entire programme, the value can be matched with the grade as given in the Grade Point table as per the Seven (07) Points Grading System and expressed as a single designated GRADE such as O, A, B, etc….
