The work load, as said before depends on the total number of credits. These credits play an important role in the flexibility that a student gets during pursuing his/her graduation or post-graduation. There are always two criteria in which the student should fall in order to get the graduation done, GPA (Grade Point Average) and Credits. If a student is unable to make it into either of these categories, he/she won’t be able to complete the graduation or the course they are into.
Flexibility mainly comes into play when a student is perfect on credits but short on GPA, they can then either take a subject ‘out-of-course’ to shoot up their GPA. These subjects have to compulsorily be relevant to the course which is been taken by the student. A student can only make his course flexible if he/she gets an option to cross out the subject which he/she has already studied.
The faculties of the universities judge the students based on different criteria including written exams, oral presentations, essays, group work or participation in discussions within the class. All of these things are been used to finally grade a student at the end of the year, which fall between A (Highest) and F (Fail).
A grade point average (GPA) is then calculated, with a 4.00 being awarded for every A grade, 3.00 for every B grade, and so on down to 0.00 for an F.
