Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU ) known as Rohtak University, Rohtak, came into existence by the Act No. 25 of 1975 in the Haryana Legislative Assembly in the year 1976 with the motive and further to promote inter disciplinary college education and do research in the field of environmental science ,ecological and life science. It was renamed as Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU) back in 1977 after the name of great visionary and great social reformer “Maharshi Dayanand Ji”. University has an basic and residential character in its earlier stage, but became an affiliating University in the month of November in 1978. The University gathered the recognition of University Grants Commission, the higher education regulatory body of India – for central Govt. grants in the month of Feb. 1983.
Maharshi Dayanand University has tremendously developed from 1975 almost changed every aspect in calculating a final percentage of the degree talking about any UG, PG courses, removed the 8th Semester exams from UG students (instead they have to do industrial training) or even small things like answer sheets details entering format.
Calculating a final percentage is still difficult and confusing for every student part of MDU who is fresher or even for most of the students who are in final year. So to avoid this confusion our team thought of bringing this article to help every student who is part of MDU.
Firstly degree percentage is calculated as shown in the picture.
As you can see there is percentage wise division of marks for corresponding years to calculate degree.
1st year: 40% of total marks
2nd year: 50% of total marks
3rd year: 80% of total marks
4th year: 100% of total marks
Now the final degree calculation procedure is changed there is no percentage wise divisions, the approach followed is very simple as shown in the image.
As you can see there is no percentage wise division, Every semester holds equal weight-age and marks obtained in individual semesters will have impact on your final degree percentage calculation.
We wish you all secure good percentage when calculating final degree percentage.
All the best study hard!!
