As a student of ESUT, you must have heard about grade point (G.P) especially as a way of knowing and monitoring your academic performance after each semester and yearly.
from this, what else do you know about grade point (G.P)?
thought about how to calculate it? And even if you have thought about how to
calculate yours, how sure are you that you know how to calculate it?
You are not
That is why
in today’s article am going to be teaching you how to calculate your cumulative
grade point (G.P) accurately to avoid errors
And am going
to be doing that with demonstrations in pictures because you and I know that
pictures are louder and understandable in teaching more than written words.
wasting much of your time Lets’ get started
How to Calculate your G.P in ESUT and Other Universities
For you to be able to calculate your grade point G.P accurately, you need to know these two things: the Grade points of all grades like i illustrated below and the credit unit of your courses, of which i displayed the picture below with arrow.
70 – 100
60 – 69
50 – 59
*45 – 49
0 – 44
So Lets’ just
say you offered nine (9) courses in your first semester.
result was released and you got 4 A’S, 2 B’S, 2 C’S and 1 F.
So for you
to calculate your Grade point (G.P) you need to know that the A, B, C, D and F grade
is equal to 5, 4, 3, 2 and 0 points, when it comes to calculation of G.P.
And also each course always comes with what is widely known as credit unit or credit load which comes in numbers (from 2 and above).
Meanwhile lets’ also assume that the credit units for all the courses you took in that particular semester of which you have seen the results is three(3).
Now that you
have known your grade and your credit unit, here is how you are going to
First multiply each grade with the credit unit.
Secondly add all of the numbers you’ve
got from the multiplication you did in the first
Thirdly, add the entire credit unit for
all the courses together
Finally divide what you got from the second
step with what you got in the third (second/third).
So after doing the final division in the last one, what you get is what will be your G.P for the semester.
you can also watch these four minutes video to enable you do a simple calculation without stress.
is how you are meant to be calculating your G.P every semester
So for you
to know your cumulative grade point average CGPA for a particular academic year
all you need to do
After calculating the first and second semester G.P, all you need to do is add them together and divide them into two…
