Academic Calendar

The academic year is divided into two semesters:

 

Spring Semester:  January – June

 

Fall Semester:  July – December

 

Enrollment with the University of Karachi

Late Payment

 

A student enrolled in any program whose tuition fee is overdue by more than 2 weeks would not be entitled to remain on the student register and his/her name shall be removed.  After removal from the register, the student will not be allowed to continue in the program.  If the student wishes to be re-admitted into the program, a reinstatement fee of Rs.2,000/= shall be charged.

Attendance

Students are required to attend 85% of the lectures as per University semester rules.  Certain exemptions may be granted to students by the Director in extra-ordinary circumstances faced by an individual student.  The student seeking such an exemption need to apply to the Director, mentioning his/her circumstances requiring such exemption.

 

Absence from classes shall also seriously limit a student’s ability to pass or do well.  In cases where a student is seeking special consideration or having progress reviewed, a good record of class attendance may be helpful in showing evidence of commitment to the program.

 

Students failing to meet the minimum attendance requirement may be reprimanded and/or debarred from sitting in future tests, term, or comprehensive examinations.

Assessment

The assessment may include a variety of forms such as written examinations, assignments, essays, project reports, presentations, field-work or other forms of assessment appropriate to the objectives of the subject.

The assessment details for each subject are included in the documentation provided at the commencement of each semester.  It is important that the students read such information carefully and are clear about the requirements to pass each subject.

Grading & Evaluation

MARKSGRADEGRADE POINT3 CREDIT
90 & aboveA+412
85-89A412
80-84A-3.811.4
75-79B+3.410.2
71-74B39

61-63C26
57-60C-1.85.4
53-56D+1.44.2
50-52D12

In order to graduate, a student is required to maintain a Cumulative GPA of 2.2 during the program.  In some cases, a student with a CGPA of 2.0 may be allowed to re-take a course to improve his GPA, with the permission of the Dean of Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Karachi.

There shall be no supplementary or make-up examinations.

Presentation of Written Work

Students should follow specific guidelines determined by the course instructor.  This is particularly important in relation to footnote and bibliography standards.  In addition, students should check their spelling, grammar, syntax and where relevant the accuracy of the typing.

 

It is important to note that you should adhere to essay word limits as marks are awarded for quality not quantity and more or excessive work may not be viewed as being better.  In many cases work exceeding the required length will be penalized.

 

Most assignment, projects, essays, case studies, etc, require you to argue a point of view or to demonstrate how you think about an issue – your ability to analyze, diagnose, recommend and implement decision situations.

 

Many students confuse thinking and writing with collecting descriptive material.  It should be limited to what is necessary and be in proportion to the other requirements of arguing and thinking.  A lot of description material, no matter how well presented, does not make a good piece of work.

 

Plagiarism

Students will be heavily penalized and possible excluded from the program if they are found submitting work which is not their own or which uses large portions of unacknowledged materials.  The normal minimum penalty for such conduct is an ‘F’ grade that assignment/project.  Repeat offenders shall be liable to heavier penalties including an ‘F’ grade for the subject and/or expulsion from the program.

Misconduct in Examination

Consulting a book article during an examination (except for “open book” examinations), or attempting to communicate or receive assistance from, or copy from the paper of, or providing assistance to another candidate during examinations is not permitted and may incur heavy penalties.  Where such misconduct occurs, CAMS BS/BBA shall convene a disciplinary board to conduct an investigation and review the case.  The decision of the board shall be final.

Deadlines and Extensions

Due dates for assignments/projects should be followed by students and work submitted after the due dates will be penalized.  Students must seek permission in advance, wherever possible, for any variation to the assessment requirements, including extension of time for assignments or if not sitting for a set examination or class test.  Your request should have your reasons and relevant supporting information, such as a doctor’s certificate, where applicable.  If you do not seek such permission, you may not be allowed to submit the assignment or re-sit the examination or class test.

 

Final grades are released by the University of Karachi through an issuance of a provisional marks sheet in the name of each student.  A consolidated marks sheet is issued by the University to each student upon graduation.

 

The University of Karachi shall retain the final examination scripts and project reports.

Exclusion from the Degree Program

CAMS BS/BBA may consider your performance unsatisfactory to the extent that you should be excluded from the program.  This applies especially when you fail the same subject twice.  In this case, you should regard it as automatic that CAMS BS/BBA will take steps to exclude you.  Exclusion processes should be regarded as operative from the day of the posting by CAMS BS/BBA of the result for the subject in which you have failed for the second time.  Unless a written appeal is lodged within 7 working days from the receipt of the exclusion notice, it will be assumed that you have accepted CAM BS/BBA’s decision to exclude you.

 

Students may seek permission from the Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration, University of Karachi, for the third attempt in passing a subject in case of special circumstances.

Cancellation of Admission

A student may decide to cancel his admission in the program.  Such as step should be carefully considered by the student as after cancellation the student shall be treated as a new admission if he wishes to re-join the program.  The student should inform the Program Director in writing, mentioning the reasons for cancellation of admission.  Normally, such a decision should be taken prior to the commencement of a semester, and no later than the 4th week of a semester.  Fees are not refunded when a student withdraws from a subject or cancels enrollment after the 4th week of commencement of classes.  All fees of the University of Karachi are non-refundable.
