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.

e.g. If a student get minimum of 35 out of 100 in theory exams and 50 out of 100 in assignment for any particular course, then that course will be considered as complete.

In case, if any student is unable to get passing marks out 50, 70 or 100, then he/she has to again appear in the upcoming examination for that particular course.

Now let’s discuss about BDP elective courses which are of 4 credits each. Some of these courses are CHE-2, LSE-1, PHE-6, etc. The maximum marks for these courses in the examination is 50.

For elective courses (4 Credits), students have to obtain minimum of 18 marks out 50 in theory examination. In the same way as in foundation courses, the students have to obtain minimum of 50% marks in assignments for elective courses as well.

There are few elective courses which are of 2 credits each. e.g. PHE-1, PHE-2, CHE-1, MTE-4, etc. The maximum marks for these courses in theory exam is 25. The students have to obtain minimum of 9 marks out of 25 to pass the theory exams. Additionally, the students require 50% marks in assignments to complete the course.

For 6 credit elective courses, the maximum marks is 75. Therefore, students have to obtain minimum of 27 out of 75 to pass the theory exam. The passing marks in Ignou assignments remains same for these courses as well. i.e. 50% marks.
