Minimum GPA Requirements
A student must maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.2 on a cumulative basis during his/her stay at the IBA. Any student with a CGPA of less than 2.0 is dropped from the rolls of the Institute forthwith.
If in any regular semester a student's CGPA falls between 2.00-2.19, he/she would be issued a warning letter and put on probation in the next semester in which he/she is registered for studies. He/she would be required to bring his/her CGPA up to the desired point, i.e., 2.2.
At the end of the probation semester, a probationer is required to improve his / her CGPA and bring it up to the required minimum 2.2.
If a probationer shows an improvement, but his CGPA is still below 2.2, then his / her probation may be extended for another semester. If he / she still fails to bring his CGPA to 2.2 by the end of the next semester of studies, his/her name shall be dropped from the rolls of the Institute.
If a student fails to pass certain courses and yet manages to maintain his / her CGPA equal to or above 2.2, he / she is allowed to repeat and clear the course(s)or substitute(s) (wherever permissible) before the degree is awarded to him / her.
The CGPA is computed at the end of each semester including a summer semester that a student might have enrolled in.
