    Is it true that degree is awarded only on the basis of 5th to 8th semester marks?

    my percentage engineering is as follows:


    1. from 1 to 8 sem it's 59.3 %
    2. from 5 to 8 sem. it's 65%


    degree is awarded only on the basis of 5 to 8 sem marks. can I apply
    for the opening where they mentions Graduate degree with 60% marks ?

    No that is not true.Degree marks are awarded on the basis of performance in all semesters.Your marks will be 59.3% and not that on 5-8semester.Any marks asked is aggregate marks and not semester wise marks.You can not apply where it is asked for 60% marks.

    Hello,

    The degree is awarded on the aggregate basis which depends on each and every semesters marks.
    The aggregate is calculated on some basis like w% of 1st year+x% of 2nd year+y% of 3rd year+z% of 4th year.

    So this is a myth that it is calculated on 5 to 8 sem marks.

    And you will not be allowed to appear for any exam or company whose criteria is 60%
    and if your marks are 59% also.

    Good Luck.

    Hai

    percentage is calculated by combining all semester marks i,e average of 1-8 semesters marks will be calculated

    companies also consider your average of all semesters percentage and not consider your 5-8 semester marks

    You have less percentage in engineer(<60) .So you cannot apply for jobs where percentage criteria is 60%

    Hello friend yes its true,

    Degree marks get counts on the basis of 5-8 semester marks.

    If you have got > 70% marks then you will get FCD.

    If you have got > 60% marks then you will get FC.

    If you have got < 70% marks then you will get SC.

    Hi Friend,

    The Degree is awarding on the basis of 1st semester to 8th semester,
    That why we have 8 semester, otherwise we could have directly semester no 5 to 8.

    Dont rely on the others thought.
    So always maintain a good prolific acedemic career,

    To get placed or to get a government job, you have to have more than 60% overall in all semester.
    So plan and Study accordingly.

    Best Wishes,
    Thanks.

    Hi........
    This is totally false that degree is calculated on the basis of 5 to 8th semester. calculation is done as follows

    If you are pursuing your degree then average of the percentage from 1st to 6th sem is calculate. That is total marks divided by 6. This is the criteria while you pursuing your degree.

    but if you have completed your degree then its depend on your university that how much percentage of every year they count. but it is sure that each semester marks are come into account.For example 10% of first year
    20% of second year, 40% of third year, and 100% of final year. so if you are thinking that you have got 64% then sorry dear its not true.
    And sorry that you can not apply for companies asking for 60% in graduation.

    good luck

    hello



    Dear... Marks are calculated on the basis of all semesters not ant part of .

    so don't think of it and you can apply only according to your all performed semesters marks

    aggregate . You have scored 59% aggregate then this will be count where ever you apply for .

    like bank Po post requires graduation with 60% aggregate in any discipline here you cannot apply

    as per your marks . But where it is not necessary of 60% then there you can apply .

    Hai

    It is not true that degree is awarded only on the basis of 5th to 8th semester marks.

    Marks are calculated by combining all semester marks.i.
    e,average of 1-8 semester marks

    Companies also consider your average of all semester marks only

    Because you have less percentage(<60) in the engineering degree .So you cannot apply for the job where percentage criteria is 60%

    Companies

    Re: Is it true that degree is awarded only on the basis of 5th to 8th semester marks?

    In any course degree is always awarded or marks calculated on the basis of all the years that you have studied or all semesters that you have studied
    So if your marks is below 60% than you cannot apply for jobs which specifies min 60% as eligibilty criteria.

    But even if you have got less than 60% marks you can still get good jobs.
    min 60% criteria has been specified by few companies and not all

    so just apply to those jobs where you are eligible and you will surely get the job
    plus make sure that your technical knowledge is good and also your communication skills is good
    you cana lso apply to banks as specialist officers as Technical officer in Scale 1
    for this you have to give the IBPS specialist officers exams

    Its just a rumour. The graduation academics aggregate is found on the basis of performance of all the semesters.

    There is no speciality for fifth to eighth semesters. There may be some difference in grade points available for subjects in each semester.

    But the aggregate of graduation is found by taking the average or something similar to average of performance of all the semester.

    In some universities aggregate is found by taking the grade point weightage. Perform well in all the semesters. Its better to give impotence to subjects with more weightage as the total grade point will be affected by it.
