    Minimum GPA Requirements
    A student must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.2 on a cumulative basis during their stay at the IBA. Any student with a GPA of less than 2.0 is dropped from the rolls of the Institute. A student securing a GPA between 2.0 and 2.2 is put on probation for one semester and required to improve his/her GPA and bring it to the required minimum 2.2 in the following semester. If the CGPA improves but remains below 2.2 the students are put on the second probation. The student is dropped if the CGPA does not reach 2.2 or more after the second probation. No semester break is allowed during this time. If a student fails to pass certain courses and yet manages to maintain his GPA 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 GPA is computed at the end of each semester including the summer semesters that a student enrolls in.
    The Academic Board has decided that the CGPA of morning program students would also be calculated after they have done a minimum of six courses. The Academic Board further decided that this decision would be applicable from Fall 2012 semester.

    Examination Policy
    Examinations play a vital role in the learning process of students. They provide feedback to the students about their progress in a particular course, and also help a faculty member assess their students' competency level. Examinations are used by IBA to assess, certify and rank students' performance.
    ...
    allowed the MBA faculty to
    Since prompt feedback is important, IBA faculty has maintained a tradition of discussing the results of the mid-term exams in the first or second regular meeting after the exam and announcing the final results within 10 days of the date of the final examination.
    Around 40% of the total marks are usually allocated for the finals, whereas the rest are divided among various components including mid-terms, quizzes, home assignments, projects, term reports, and class participation. IBA does not encourage the practice of 'choice' for the questions to be answered; all questions must be attempted in the final examination. However, the teacher may use the formula of n-m for the quizzes, in which the best m out of n quizzes will be counted.
