Or else, the student gets NP grade. That is to say, anyone who fails in HSS component gets NP grade, anyone who fails in their respective departmental assessment gets NP grade, all those who do not complete the requirement such as taking the HSS Test or giving the departmental seminar etc. will naturally get NP grade for not completing the requirement of the course.
