1. The “Base 50” equation shall be used in the computation of grades of BSA and BSBA students during the preliminary, midterm, pre-final, and final examinations, shown as follows:

Grade = (Raw Score/ Total Number of Items) x 50 + 50,
for example, (75/100) X 50 + 50 = 88%.


2. For the four (4) comprehensive examinations* to be administered to BSA students, the “Zero-Base” model shall be used, as follows:

Grade = Raw Score/ Total Number of Items,
for example, 75/100= 75%.

3. A student shall be retained in the BSA program provided:

A. He/she meets the required cut-off grade of 2.5 (81%-83%) in all professional courses.
