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 titles Letter Grade Point
Molecular Genetics B 4 3 12
Basic Ecology C+ 3 3 9
Bioinformatics A 5 3 15
Enzymology B 4 3 12
Tissue culture B 4 3 12
Totals 15 60
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.

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.

The CGPA for the various classes shall be as indicated below:-
Class Cumulative Grade Point Average
First Class (Honours) 4.40 5.00
Second Class- Upper Division 3.60 4.39
