The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) of India has informed that it has reviewed and revised its grading system from a four grade system to a seven grade system. More number of letter grades within the same CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) range will lead to further differentiation in quality of accredited institutions. The details of the revised grading system, being implemented from 1st July, 2016 onwards, are as follows:

The NAAC has further informed that the present system of descriptors for letter grades, i.e., Very Good, Good, Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory, has been discontinued in the revised grading system.

This information was given by the Union Human Resource Development Minister, Mr. Prakash Javadekar, in parliament.

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) is an organisation that assesses and accredits institutions of higher education (universities and colleges) in India. It is an autonomous body funded by the University Grants Commission of Government of India and is headquartered in Bangalore.

According to NAAC, “Assessment and Accreditation is broadly used for understanding the “Quality Status” of an institution. In the context of Higher Education, the accreditation status indicates that the particular Higher Educational Institutions (HEI) - a College, a University, or any other recognised Unit therein, meets the standards of quality as set by the Accreditation Agency, in terms of its performance, related to the educational processes and outcomes, covering the curriculum, teaching-learning, evaluation, faculty, research, infrastructure, learning resources, organisation, governance, financial well being and student services.”
