Achievement Grade
  • The achievement and assessment of the module is achieved by evaluating the students' grades from the midterm work and the final exam.
  • The meanings of the achievement grades are defined as follows:
    • Evaluation and grading of student’s performance shall be based on the grade point average (GPA) system.
    • Letter grades shall be used to describe the achievement level attained within a particular module. A final semester grade shall be based on continuous assessment throughout the semester as well as a final examination.
    • The grades obtained by the student in each module are estimated as follows:

  • The following grade designations shall form part of the overall grading system, but shall not carry numeric value.
  • I – Incomplete: The 'I' grade shall be used when two basic conditions have been met:
    • The student has a passing level in the module work which he/she has completed by the end of the course; and
    • The student has been prevented by circumstances beyond his/her control, such as illness, accident or family emergency, from completing all the semester requirements on time.
  • W – Withdrawn: A 'W' shall be assigned to a student who withdraws formally from a semester.
  • Grade Point Average (GPA): It is a weighted average that summarizes each of the two levels of activity: the semester and the cumulative work to date.
  • The Semester GPA is calculated on the courses taken within a given semester:
  • The Semester GPA shall be based on all courses taken in the corresponding semester and shall be calculated as follows:

    The numeric value of the grade earned in each module is multiplied by the number of credits for that module. This result is called the grade points (GP) earned in that module. The sum of the grade points earned in that semester is divided by the total credits attempted during that semester. In these calculations, only modules with numeric value grades are considered. The resultant quotient is the Semester GPA, as shown in the following equation.


The Cumulative GPA is calculated on all modules taken to date, inclusive of all semesters. This is a single total calculation (not the average of averages). The Cumulative GPA shall be based on all modules taken and all credits attempted to date and shall be calculated as follows:

Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) refers to the overall GPA, which includes dividing the number of grade points earned in all modules attempted by the total credit hours in all attempted modules.

Total credits attempted = 6+6+4+8+3 = 27

Total grade points earned  = 6×4+6×3+4×2.3+8×0.0+3×1.7 = 56.3

Grade Point Average = 56.3/27  = 2.085
