Exit Examination System

The exit examination system was conceptualized and implemented by the University to all students enrolled in programs leading to licensure examinations. This exit examination system will be used as a verification tool to test the attainment of course outcomes and course cluster outcomes and to measure the integrated understanding of topics covered in a course series and group of stand-alone courses.

Critical Course Series and Group of Stand-alone Courses

The courses relevant to licensure examination were identified by each caretaker school and servicing department. Based on the contents and sequence of the courses, interconnected courses were grouped into course clusters and termed as critical course series. Courses that cannot be grouped into any critical course series but are important to the licensure examination were classified as group of stand-alone courses. These critical course series and group of stand-alone courses will comprise the critical path leading to licensure examination.

Departmental Diagnostic Examination in a Critical Course Series

A departmental diagnostic examination will be given from the second course up to the terminal course in any critical course series. The scope of the diagnostic exam is cumulative up to the curricular content of the course immediately preceding the one during which the exam will be given, e.g. the coverage of the diagnostic exam in the third course in the series will be the coverage of the first and second courses, etc. The method in giving the diagnostic examination will be determined by the caretaker school or department servicing the course in the series. The diagnostic examination is considered as one quiz.

Exit Examination and Special Exit Examination

All exit examination will be administered twice during the term the terminal course in any course series is offered. The portion of the terminal course covered until the date of the exit examination and the whole curricular scope of the previous courses in the critical series will be the coverage of the exit examination.

A special exit examination for a group of stand-alone courses will be given on the dates decided on by the caretaker school or department handling the stand-alone courses. The coverage of the special exit examination is the curricular scope of all the courses belonging to the group.

A student must get a score of at least 70% to pass an exit examination or special exit examination. Getting a passing mark in an exit examination is one of the prerequisites to enroll in some identified courses; getting a passing mark in all exit examinations including the special exit exams, is a requirement for taking the mock board examination in the correlation course. There is no limit, however, as to the number of times a student can retake an exit examination or special examination.

At the beginning of every quarter, schedules of exit examinations and special exit examinations will be announced. Caretaker departments handling the exit exams will bill the students who will take the exams.

Two weeks after the examinations, the results will be posted on the individual My-Mapúa account of the students.

All appeals and score corrections will be handled and resolved by the corresponding caretaker school or department.

Preparation of Exit and Special Exit Examination

Ad-hoc examination committees will be formed to develop the exit examination for the basic courses and to screen contributions to the exam databank. The members of these ad-hoc committees are the faculty members handling related professional courses; e.g. the members of the ad-hoc exit examination committee for mathematics are the faculty members handling advanced engineering mathematics. Exit and special exit examinations for professional courses will be developed by the respective course clusters handling the critical course series or the group of stand-alone courses.

Exit Examination System for Physics, Mathematics, and General Chemistry

The exit examination system in mathematics and physics will be applicable to all science and engineering programs that require licensure examinations.

The exit examination system in general chemistry will be applicable only to programs where chemistry is an integral part of the licensure examination: BS Chemical Engineering; BS Chemistry; the double degree program in Biotechnology and Chemistry; and the double degree program in Geology and Geological Science and Engineering.

Supercritical Courses

Supercritical courses are those with great contribution and impact to the licensure examination.

Critical Course Series

A course series is a succession of courses interconnected by flow content. A critical course series is a course series, the content of which is part of the syllabus of a licensure examination.

The critical course series in mathematics, physics, and general chemistry in a science or engineering program requiring a licensure examination are schematically shown below.

  • Critical course series in Mathematics

  • Critical course series in Physics

  • Critical course series in General Chemistry

Diagnostic Examination

In a critical course series, diagnostic examination will be given from the second course up to the terminal course in the series. The coverage of the diagnostic examination is cumulative up to the curricular content of the course immediately preceding the one during which the exam will be given as shown in the table.

The method in giving the examination will be decided on by the Department of Mathematics for mathematics courses; Department of Physics for general physics courses; and School of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry for general chemistry courses. The diagnostic examination will be considered as one quiz.

Exit Examination

All exit examinations will be administered every time the terminal course is offered: multivariable calculus for mathematics, general physics 4 for general physics, and general chemistry 3 for chemistry. The portion of the terminal course and the whole cumulative scope of the other courses in the critical course series will be the coverage of the exit examination. The caretaker department or the school can schedule additional examination dates, if needed.

A student must get a score of at least 70% to pass an exit examination. A passing mark in an exit examination is one of the prerequisites to enrol in an advanced course or a correlation course. There is no limit as to the number of times a student can retake an exit examination.

Ad-hoc examination committees will be formed to formulate the questions to be given in the exit examination. The members of the examination committee for mathematics will be selected from among the faculty members teaching advanced engineering mathematics or graduate-level mathematics course. Selected faculty members teaching relevant professional courses will be chosen as members of the ad-hoc examination committee for general physics. Selected faculty members teaching advanced or graduate-level chemistry course will be chosen as members of the ad-hoc examination committee for general chemistry. The ad-hoc examination committees will also be responsible for the screening of the contributions to the examination databank.

At the beginning of every quarter, students who intend to take the exit exams will have to go to the Customer Service Section of the Registrar’s Office for billing.

Two weeks after the examinations, the results will be posted on the individual My-Mapua account of the students.

All appeals and score corrections will be handled and resolved by the corresponding caretaker school or department.

Implementation

The Office of Instruction will be the overall administrator of the exit examination system. The caretaker schools or departments are the Department of Mathematics for mathematics, the Department of Physics for general physics, and the School of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry for general chemistry. The Center for Student Advising will develop review materials and conduct remedial review classes.

Grading System

The final grade of a student in any course shall be as follows:

SA Special Audit
Au Audit

For regular courses, the final grade is based on the following requirements:

  • Quizzes and major exams
  • Class standing
    • Attendance
    • Recitation
    • Assignments/Homework
    • Research work
    • Projects
  • Final Exams

Note : The exact percentage distribution of each item above is shown in the course syllabus of the program. The grading system shall not apply to special courses that require a modified grading system as determined by the office of the dean.

The grade of 5.00 is given to:

  • To those students whose performance is poor.
  • To those students whose midterm grades are failing and who stop attending their classes after the midterm examinations.
  • To those students who stop attending their classes any time without officially dropping their courses through the Office of the Registrar.
  • To those students who have accumulated a number of absences equivalent to 20% of the prescribed number of school days in one (1) quarter

THE GRADE OF ABS (ABSENT)

The grade of ABS is given to a student who is officially enrolled in a course but failed to report in his class even once since the beginning of the term.

The grade of ABS shall be considered as a grade of “5” in the computation of the weighted average for one (1) quarter.

THE GRADE OF "I" (INCOMPLETE)

The grade of "I" is equivalent to an incomplete grade and is not a mark of conditional failure.

The grade of "I" should only be given under the following conditions:

  • The student was not able to take the final examination because of justifiable reason, provided that his class standing is passing before the final examination
  • The student was not able to submit the terminal or capstone project a a design, feasibility study, or a similar course

In case of extraordinary or special circumstances, the Dean or Department head can approved the request, on a case-to-case basis, after weighing all factors and considerations which would properly justify the giving of a grade of "I".

A grade of "I" for a course outside the program of study of a student shall not affect his/her scholarship privileges.

A grade of "I" for a course within the program of study shall disqualify a student from his/her academic scholarship.

A grade of "I" shall not be included in the computation of the general weighted average for a particular quarter.

No general weighted average shall be reflected in the grade report if all courses for a particular quarter are given a grade of "I".

The grade of "I" must be completed within the next two (2) quarters.

If the student fails to complete the requirements within the prescribed period, the grade of "I" lapses and the student will be given a failing mark of 5 for the course.

During the prescribed period of completion, the student may re-enroll the course in lieu of completing the requuirements; in such case, he will have to repeat the same course and satisfy all its requirements, and the grade he will receive from the re-enrolled course will be his completion grade.

Requirements:

  • Permit to complete form (available at the Customer Service Section of the Office of the Registrar)
  • Completion form signed by the professor concerned
  • Payment for completion of grade

THE GRADE OF P (PASSED)

The Grade of P shall be given only for dissertation, thesis or research practicum course.

THE GRADE OF IP (IN PROGRESS)

The grade of IP shall be given only for dissertation, thesis or research practicum course which is not finished during the prescribed term.

The grade of IP shall be replaced by the final grade P or F once the course is completed. The procedures for the completion of the grade of IP and the grade of "I" are the same.

The grade of IP shall always appear in the students course load every quarter until he/she completes the dissertation, thesis or research practicum course. While the student need not to pay the tuition fee for this course in this particular situatuin, the dissertation, thesis or research practicum course units will be considered in the computation of the total units enrolled by the student for a particular term.

The grade of IP shall appear in the final rade report of the student every quarter until it is completed and given a final grade of P or F.

The grade of IP must be completed within one (1) year for undergraduate and masteral programs and three (3) years for doctoral programs. After such period, the student must re-enroll the course.

The grade of IP shall not be included in the computation of the general weighted average for a particular term.

  • A grade of IP (in progress) is given to students enrolled in Part A components of the Nursing professional courses (both lecture and RLE) and who are not in any of the following:
    • A grade of ABS is given if student did not attend any of the meetings.
    • A grade of W is automatically given if student officially applied for withdrawal of course
    • A grade of 5.0 is given if student stopped attending classes without official withdrawal of course or cancellation of enrolment.
  • In the succeeding term, the grades in Part B components of the same courses are submitted and are likewise reflected as the same grades obtained by the student in the Part A components. However, if the grade in Part B is I (incomplete), the grade of IP in Part A is retained.

THE GRADE OF F (FAILED)

The grade of F shall be given only for dissertation, thesis or research practicum course.

The grade of F shall be considered as a grade of 5 in the computation of the weighted average for the quarter.

THE GRADE of SA (SPECIAL AUDIT)

The grade of SA is given to students with very slim chance of passing the course. Students are advised by the faculty to apply for SA at the Registrar’s Office.

The grade of SA is given only on the condition that they continue to attend the class till the end of the quarter.

Students with a SA grade do not qualify for awards and scholarships.

Students with a SA grade will not be given tuition discount privileges.

AUDIT COURSES

All students who would like to audit courses must seek the approval of the respective Dean or Subject Chair and must pay the corresponding full tuition.

Audit courses will be reflected in the student’s Transcript of Records (TOR).

All audit courses will be given a grade of “Au”. This grade will not be included in the computation of quarterly weighted average.

OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL OF COURSES

A student desiring to withdraw a course must do so not later than the deadline set by the Office of the Registrar. Any student who is allowed by the Registrar to withdraw the course for justifiable reasons shall be given a grade of W (OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL).

Withdrawal of a lecture course that is a corequisite of a laboratory course constitutes withdrawing both the lecture and the laboratory courses

In cases wherein the student fails to officially withdraw a course, the faculty member shall be guided by the following:

  • The student shall be given a final grade of "5" (FAILURE).
  • The student shall be given a final grade of ABS (ABSENT) if he failed to report in his class since the beginning of the term.

The grade of W can neither be removed nor completed. It has no bearing on the rules regarding refunds or payments made as stipulated in a memorandum from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

Graduation

Requirements for Graduation

Students with 34 units or less remaining are required to have their records evaluated at the Office of the Registrar.

Maximum Residency Rule (MRR)

MAXIMUM RESIDENCY RULE (MRR)

The curriculum of a program will be in effect up to a period equivalent to two (2) times of its normal length reckoned from the time it is first offered.

Students who fail to complete the requirements of an undergraduate program within a period of two (2) times the normal length of the concerned program shall not be allowed to register further in the program.

For example, the effectivity of the curriculum of a four-year program is eight (8) years. Beyond this period, except for some courses in languages, humanities, and social sciences, all courses will be considered obsolete; hence, crediting of such courses will no longer apply. Students returning after this period, if accepted, will have to repeat the whole program using the latest curriculum.

Under meritorious cases, extension of residency may be granted by the Dean of the school or Chair of the program.

The above rule is applicable to the following students:

  • For four-year programs, Batch 2007 and onwards
  • For three-year programs, Batch 2008 and onwards
  • Batch 1989 and prior

SPECIAL REACTIVATION AFTER MAXIMUM RESIDENCY

For all Batch 2000 to Batch 2006 students, and for Batch 2007 students of three-year programs, they will be allowed to finish their studies using their original curriculum if their remaining number of course units is 15 units and below. For students with more than 15 units remaining, the most appropriate curriculum, with crediting of courses, will be adopted.

For Batches 1990 to 1999 students, they will be allowed to finish their studies on a case-to- case basis and subject to the conditions required by the University.

Maximum Course Load (15 Units)

Under the quarterm system of the University, the regular academic calendar consists of eleven (11) weeks.

The maximum student load per quarter is prescribed by the curriculum of the student. It should, however, not exceed fifteen (15) units.

Students with a remaining load of thirty four (34) units are allowed to apply for an overload of four (4) units over the prescribed maximum load for the last two (2) quarters (if there is no prerequisite violation and the number of laboratory/drafting units does not exceed two (2).

Midterm, Final and Departmental Examination

In addition to the regular quizzes required by the syllabi, the University gives three (3) major examinations, namely:

  • The midterm examinations which are given for one (1) hour in the case of courses of three (3) units or less and for two (2) hours for courses of four (4) units or more during the examination week scheduled by the office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.
  • The final examinations taken during the week scheduled by the office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.
  • The departmental examinations for Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and courses under the Department of Languages and Social Sciences.

Official Conduct of Academic Activity

Any academic activity (e.g. written and oral exams, completion of grades, etc.) involving a student is considered official only when the student is officially enrolled during a particular term.

In cases when no particular course or courses are available for student registration, the student must apply for residency status. He/she must enroll and pay for the corresponding residency fee.

The residency fee which is the counterpart of the prevailing registration fee entitles the student to the use of the libraries in the campus.

The enrollment and payment of the residency fee may be accomplished at any time during the term but always prior to the scheduling of any academic activity involving the student.

A student who lacks the completion of a dissertation, a thesis or research practicum to graduate from a program must pay the residency fee for every quarter until he/she becomes eligible for graduation. This requirement however is waived once the student officially applies for leave of absence (LOA).

Prior to the issuance of a Completion Request Form to a student with an incomplete grade (“7”), the Office of the Registrar shall check if the student is officially enrolled during the term. If not, the student must first enroll and pay the corresponding residency fee.

Even if the student is only enrolled “in residency”, that quarter will be included in the computation of his or her total number of terms where he/she is in residence.

Official Withdrawal of Courses

A student desiring to withdraw a course must do so not later than the deadline set by the Office of the Registrar. Any student who is allowed by the Registrar to withdraw the course for justifiable reasons shall be given a grade of W (OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL).

A student wishing to withdraw a course must fill out the request form at the Customer Service Section of the Office of the Registrar.

A student caught cheating during the examination shall not be allowed to withdraw a course; he must be reported to the Center for Student Activities and Discipline (CSAD) for proper action.

Students who intend to withdraw a course shall obtain clearance from the CSAD and the Office of the Registrar.

A student may withdraw any course except PE and NSTP.

Request to withdraw the course should not violate the ff:

  • the prerequisite course regulation
  • the paired lecture and lab/field/drafting courses regulation

Withdrawal of a lecture course that is a corequisite of a laboratory course constitutes withdrawing both the lecture and the laboratory courses.

In cases wherein the student fails to officially withdraw a course, the faculty member shall be guided by the following:

  • The student shall be given a final grade of “5” (FAILURE).
  • The student shall be given a final grade of ABS (ABSENT) if he failed to report in his class since the beginning of the term.

  • the corequisite course regulation
  • the paired lecture and lab/field/drafting course regulation

Scholarships, Awards and Academic Honors

Scholarships

After each quarter, students may avail of a scholarship program upon application at the Center for Scholarships and Financial Assistance (CSFA) on the basis of their academic standing in the previous quarter.

A full scholarship consisting of free tuition for one quarter may be earned by a student who obtains a weighted grade average of between 1.00 and 1.50, provided he/she carries an academic load of not less than ten (10) units and has not obtained a grade lower than “3” in any course.

A partial scholarship, consisting of 50% reduction in the quarterly tuition fee, may be earned by a student who obtains a credit average of 1.51 to 1.75, provided he/she carries an academic load of not less than ten (10) units and has not obtained a grade lower than “3” in any course.

The general weighted average (GWA) of a student is the weighted average of his/her grades in all academic courses in his program of study with the number of credit units used as the weights. In its computation, two decimal places are retained disregarding the succeeding digits without rounding off.Academic courses are courses in a student’s program of study except PE and NSTP.

Failing grades are 5.00, 8.00 and F.
