Message from the Head of the Department of Pharmacy I am happy to know that the Daffodil International University is publishing a Brochure of the Department of Pharmacy, I am sure, this Brochure will serve as an useful guide for the students of the Pharmacy (Hons.) programme of this University. The Department of Pharmacy is committed to prepare students to go on to establity careers as practicing pharmacists in the areas of community pharmacy, Hospital pharmacy and in the drug manufacturing sector. The Department is, however, aware that the role of the pharmacists is not limited to only the above three healthcare sectors, they are also being increasingly called upon to offer advice to doctors on prescribing issues and to the public on treatment for a wide range of less serious complaints, The Department is thus planning to prepare its students in those areas so that they can serve the nation in a better way, In order to achieve this goal, courses like Clinical pharmacy, laws and ethics guiding the pharmacy profession, Hospital and Community pharmacy have been included in the syllabuses of the Department. Entry into these areas can be either directiy with a Bachelor degree in Pharmacy of this University or at a later stage with a higher degree in Pharmacy (M. Pham. M.Phil. of Ph.D.), which the Department is planning to offer in near future. Since the Brochure under publication containc the detailed syllabus of the B.Pham. (Hons.) programmer I hope, the present and future students of these Department will be tremendously benefited by this Brochure. I wish every success of this highly commendable endeavour of the
Professor Dr. Shamsul Haque

A student in the VC's List will be given individual citation. Grading and Performance Evaluation Process
Final grade in each course will be given on the basis of the performance on class attendance, quiz, assignment, presentation, midterm test and final examination as indicated below: A student may earn five-letter grades on the basis of his/her performance of the course. The letter grades A, B, C, and D are considered passing grades and also acceptable to continuing of grades. Grade F is the failing grade. The numerical equivalents of the grades and grade points are given below: Marks obtained out of 100
Grade point Equivalent
75% to less than 80% 70% to less than 75% 65% to less than 70% 60% to less than 65% 55% to less than 60% 50% to less than 55% 45% to less than 50% 40% to less than 45% Grade Report
Each student's grade point average is numerical value obtained by dividing the total grade points earned by the credits attempted. Only the courses graded A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D and F are used to determine credits attempted. In case students repeat courses, GPA and CGPA will be calculated on the basis of the grades obtained at the last attempt of the course (s) only. Grades obtained in course (s) in all examinations will be shown in the grade report. In addition, students who complete courses in addition to their normal credit requirements for graduation will inform the Registrar in writing about the course, which he intends to declare for consideration towards the requirements for the degree. Incomplete (I)/ Improvement
The ‘Incomplete' (I) grade will be used in special circumstances. The ‘Incomplete' may be given only at the end of a semester to a student who has completed all other requirements except the final examination. The student has the responsibility to take the initiative in making up the Incomplete as specified by the instructor. If action is not taken within three weeks of commencement of the next semester, the ‘I' grade will automatically be converted into "F". In the event, where the instructor from whom a student received an incomplete grade is not available, the disposition of the case-involving grade rests with the Dean of Faculties. Moreover, students can get the opportunity to improve the grade by appearing final examination of 40 percent of the total weight in particular course. Academic Probation
A student must maintain a good academic standing with a CGPA of at least 2.00. Students with CGPA and (or) GPA of less than 2.00 will be placed on Probation. Students on Probation will be allowed a maximum of three semesters to earn CGPA and (or) GPA 2.00 or more failing of which will result in dropped from the program. Retake Policy
A course passed with a grade less than B may be repeated to improve the relevant grade. When a course is repeated, the previous grade will be automatically cancelled. Students, failing in a course, will be allowed to repeat that course twice at the most on payment of course fee. Appeal for Grade

But if the grade is not improved and at the same time, the student is not satisfied with the explanation of the teacher concerned, he/ she may make a written request to the Chair of the department or Dean of the faculty. The Chair will review the process by which the grade was determined. After having the grade or answer script-rechecked, the reviewed final grade will be delivered.
