How is aggregate marks calculated for b.com hons from CU for aicte mba?Cu gives is a degtee based on honours marks only in the net total.

Shubhangi Aditi 13th Jul, 2019

Hi Shubradeep,

To get actual aggregate marks of bachelors degree only marks of honors paper are added.
In most universities there ate 2 honors paper in 1st and 2nd year while 4 in the final year.
Subsidiary paper have no role to play in the aggregate marks for the degree as the student needs to just get pass marks to advance into next year.
Although subsidiary marks are available in the marksheet of 1st and 2nd year.
So it becomes important to score good marks in these subsidiary subjects to improve percentage of 1st and 2nd year.
Aggregate marks stands for total marks scored in your B.com I.e. put of 2300(1500+800) you got 1492(931+561) which is 64.87% aggregate secured in your graduation course.
Now how to calculate aggregate for B.com(yearly):
1. If student got 561 out of 800(8 honors paper) printed on the marksheet.
2. If the student got 931 out of 1500 which is total marks of 8 honors paper and 7 subsidiary paper during the three years program.

All the best.
