Exams System

 

Exam system

1.       The final grade of the course is calculated according to the total grades of the semester and the grades in the final examination of that course.

2.       The final grade is registered out of 100 and the practical training courses that are based on pass or fail only are excluded without being calculated in the general average if any.

3.       The general framework of the examinations is according to the following:

·         Theoretical courses:

-  Applied faculties:

Semester grades are assigned a percentage not over (50 %) of the course’s grade where two tests at least should take place during the semester and the final semester is assigned (50%) at least of the result and is written and thorough.

- Theoretical faculties:

Semester grades are assigned a percentage not over (40 %) of the course’s grade where two tests at least should take place during the semester and the final semester is assigned (60%) at least of the result and is written and thorough.

v  Students who obtained less than (25%) of the first semester grades are not allowed to take the theoretical exam and students who do not get (25%) of the theoretical exam do not pass.

·         Courses with a practical side, seminars applied projects and clinics:

- Faculty boards explain and approve the distribution of grades of those courses.

- Faculty boards issue by the beginning of each academic year a decision that indicates the distribution of the theoretical and practical grades.

4.       The teacher of the course is responsible for printing exam questions, preserving them and handing them to the deanship.

5.       Students are allowed to object to the results within a week of the issuance of midterm tests.

6.       Students are allowed to object to the final results within ten days of the issuance of the course’s results and the dean in this case can form a committee, chair it or delegate this responsibility to the deputy dean to make sure that no questions are left unmarked or if there is a mistake in marking.

7.       The teachers of the course are responsible for marking all exam papers of course they are teaching.

8.       Detailed marks documents and final grades are sent to the directorate of examinations for checking and then sent to the deanship to issue them.

9.       Students pay a fee for each request to review their marks and the fees are determined according to the decisions of the ministry of higher education.

 

Absence and excuses 

Students who miss the midterm or final exams are considered absent and get zero in the courses they miss. 

Grades

1. The university follows the percentage system and the minimum mark of passing each course is (50/100) or (60/100) according to the executive laws of university regulations.

2. The rates are according to the following: 

• If the minimum grade is at least (60), the rate is according to the following:

 

·  If the minimum grade is at least (60), the rate is according to the following:

Grade (percentage)

Classification

95 – 100

Honors

Below 95 – 85

Excellent

Below 85 – 75

Very good

Below 75 – 65

Good

Below 65 – 60

Adequate

· If the minimum grade is at least (50), the rate is according to the following:

Grade (percentage)

Classification

90 and over

Honors

Below 90 – 80

Excellent

Below 80 – 70

Very good

Below 70 – 60

Good

Below 60 – 50

Adequate

 

· The literal equivalent of percent grades students get is determined as a result of a degree with its equivalent classification and points according to the following table:

Incomplete

 
  • Incomplete: students who cannot complete assignments for reasons beyond their control and to avoid failing the course are classified as (incomplete) according to the decision of faculty board and university board. Students who get this classification must perform extra assignments to remove it before the end of the third week of the following semester. Failing to meet this requirement, students are given the classification deprived or fail in the course).
3. The semester average is an accumulation of the average of all courses students took whether they passed or failed that semester
Semester average = {total (number of CH × the grade of the course)} / (CH obtained during the semester).
4. The graduation average is calculated via multiplying the percentage of each course with the number of CH of each course within the average and dividing the total of multiplications by the total number of CH.
5. The semester average is fixed on the nearest two decimal numbers. 
6. Students must retake any mandatory courses they failed.
7. If students fail an optional course, they can study that course or any other optional course. In this case, the compensatory optional course is considered an equivalent to the course they failed in terms of calculating their marks in the semester average.
8. The total result of an exam is calculated as an integer irrespective of the value of the fraction.
