Why tag/re-tag?Some students re-tag to increase their Core CPI1 (CPI excluding minor, honor and additional learning courses)How? – e.g. Tag a Dept. Elective (grade lesser than the smallest integer greater than your CPI) as Additional Learning (CPI: 7.97, tag a D with grade 7/6/5/4/FR2 as Add. Learning to increase CPI)Note 1 : Core CPI is the one which appears on your placement resume as well 2 :‘Non-core’ courses with a fail grade – FR/DX/XX can be tagged as Additional Learning. Addition Learning courses with fail grades do not appear on your transcript as well.

Elective to complete their electives requirements Some students tag (have to) extra electives as Additional
