The 17th Meeting of the Standing Committee was held on September 15, 2016. 330 colleges were approved by the NAAC with 141 in the 1st cycle, 132 in the 2nd cycle and 57 in the 3rd cycle. In the earlier system, NAAC graded the institutions for each key aspect under four categories, viz. - A, B, C and D, denoting very good, good, satisfactory and unsatisfactory levels respectively based on their CGPA. For example, a college with a CGPA score between 3.01 to 4 would be graded A, and so on.
In the new system however, colleges are graded on a seven-point scale – A++ (3.76 to 4.00 CGPA), A+ (3.51 - 3.75 CGPA), A (3.01 - 3.50), B++ (2.76 - 3.00 CGPA), B+(2.51 - 2.75 CGPA), B (2.51 - 2.75 CGPA), C(1.51 - 2.00 CGPA). Any institute getting a CGPA score equal to or below 1.50 will be marked as ‘not accredited’.
