Why Result Shows Not-completed

if you see that your grade card shows not-completed when you check your grades, there you’ll see two main sections one for assignments marks and one for theory exam marks , and some have an extra one for practical labs or projects. If your result is incomplete, it usually means you haven’t passed one of these sections. For example, if you scored 55 in theory but only 33 in assignments, your result will be incomplete due to assignment failure. No worries, though! Just re-write that assignment of current session and submit to your study center. The same rule applies to theory exams, labs, or projects. Fail in any, and you’ll need to do that again. So, that’s how you can complete the result.
