Many students query about Ignou passing marks in theory exams, assignments and project. Moreover, they also face difficulty in calculating passing marks out of 25, 50, 70, 75 or 100.
So, I have decided to write an article which will make it easy for students to understand passing marks in Ignou.
Ignou passing marks for Theory, Assignments and Project
In Indira Gandhi National Open University, the students have to pass out both theory exam as well as assignment individually for any particular course to complete it.For any course, the assignment contributes 30 percent marks and Term End Theory exams contribute 70 percent marks.
Say, If any student secures 50 marks in assignment and 40 marks in TEE (Term End Theory). Then the final result of that particular course will look like :
50 x 0.3 + 40 x 0.7 = 15 marks of assignment + 28 marks in theory exams = 43 marks in total.
So, this is the method pr you can say Ignou grade card percentage calculator online to compile total marks.
Suppose, if any student obtain passing marks in theory exams and he/she is unable to pass out assignment, then he/she has to re-submit the solved assignment again to secure minimum passing marks.
