When the course and the laboratory courses are evaluated differently the requirements above are valid. Final grade of a course is found through relative evaluation system. To relative evaluation system to be able to find a student?s final grade firstly raw score is calculated considering the mid-term exam, if available education tasks and semester/year-end final exam scores as it is the same in the absolute evaluation. This grade in the evaluation method is accepted as raw grade out of 100. For all of the students raw grades out of 100 are adapted to 4 point grading system or to letter system which is admitted by the senate considering the general success level, grade variance, arithmetic mean and the standard deviation of the class. In this evaluation the mid-term exam or other studies equal to mid-term exams affect the success grade at the rate of 40% , semester/year-end exam affects the success grade at the ratio of 60%. The student who has at least 2.00 grade point average is considered to be successful on condition that s/he has no (FF), (FD), (NA) or (K) for any lesson. The student who has grade point average below 2.00 is considered unsuccessful. The ones who are unsuccessful may retake the courses graded with (DC) or (DD) with the advice of the supervisor and the approval of the head of department.

To be able to graduate from a program a student taking all the courses and pass all in the legal period, has to complete the program with a 2.00 grade point average. Grade point average is at the same time the graduation average. At the end of normal education period the students that graduate with at least basic course load with a grade point average between 3.00-3.49 have the right to have ?Achievement Certificate?, the students graduate with a grade point average between 3.50-4.00 have the right to have ?Superior Achievement Certificate?.
