Students are not ready to accept the announcement made by the university as the University has changed the grading system and the new grading system will be applicable for the students appearing for the retest too. According to the new rule, passing percentage is now 45 percent instead of 35 percent and the percentage of internal and external assessment is now 70 percent and 30 percent respectively.
