 The evaluation of leaner's depends upon various instructional activities undertaken by them. A learner has to write assignment responses compulsorily before taking term-end examination from time to time to complete an academic   program. A learner has to submit TMA responses to the Coordinator of the Study Centre concerned to which s/he is attached. A learner should keep duplicate copies of assignment responses of TMA that may be required to be produced at Student Evaluation Division on demand. Term-end examination is conducted at various examination centers spread all over the country and abroad in June and December.


IGNOU uses the Following System for Grading Student evaluating learners' achievement

A Excellent

B Very Good

C Good

D Average

E Unsatisfactory


For Bachelors' and Masters' degree programmes, normally the system of numerical marking is followed, and the marks secured in assignments, TEEs, etc. are later converted into grades as per the five-point grading scale given above. However, if required by the learner, the  university  provides numerical  marks  and  division (I, II or Pass). Calculating IGNOU result from grade card is also a tough thing for IGNOU students. A particular subject (Practical/Theory/Assignments) has its own weight age like 15% of total, 50% of total, 25% of total etc. Although your perception is correct according to your Marking scheme i.e. 70% weight age for theory and 30% weightage for Assignments.  But according to IGNOU's official Grade Card issued to students, Decimal values are avoided and the marks are round offend.


For example: If someone got 27.1, 27.2, 27.3, 27.4 then on the Grade Card it will be 27.

If it's 27.5, 27.6,27.7 etc then IGNOU Grade card will have 28.


The Calculation procedure for finding percentage is given in your BCA Programme Guide.

Its 30% weightage for Assignment and 70% weightage for TEE exam for FST and FHS. Eg: If you got in FST:  Assignment marks=(88+88)/2=88 so weightage for assignment = 40% of 88=35

TEE marks= 42 so weightage for TEE= 70% of 42=29

So total marks you got is 35+29=64

Similarly for CS courses(without practical) weightage is 75% for TEE and 25% for Assignment.

CS courses with practicals (CS-611, CS-62, CS-63, CS-68,BCS-061 etc) weightage is 60% TEE, 15% practical Exam marks and 25% for Assignment. If you are not BCA Students you can also calculate your percentage by following same procedure.Hope you can calculate your percentage now.
