Grade Point Average (GPA) for a semester
The GPA is calculated by a three-step procedure:
i)multiply the grade point for each course done in a semester by the number of CU for that course
ii)add the figures for each of these courses to arrive at the grade point total
iii)divide this grade point total by the total number of credits (CU) for which a grade was received.
For example: if in a given semester, a student completes five courses with the grades below
|COURSE||GRADE||CU VALUE||GRADE POINTS|
|Course titles||Letter||Grade Point|
|GPA: 60/15 = 4.0|
The Sixty grade point is divided by 15 CU to arrive at 4.0 GPA for the semester’s work.
8.5 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) CGPA at a given time shall be obtained by:
i)Multiplying the Grade Point obtained in each course by the credit units assigned to the course to arrive at the weighted score for the course.
ii)Adding together the weighted scores for all the courses taken up to that time.
iii)Dividing the total weighted score by the total number of Credit Units taken up to that time.
