Semester Performance /Grade Point Average

Semester Performance /Grade Point Average

A student’s performance in a semester is calculated as Grade Point Average (GPA). This involves the awarding of credit points in respect of each course taken during the semester. For every level of performance, the following grade point is allotted:

A 5 Credit points per unit of course
B 4 Credit points per unit of course
C 3 Credit points per unit of course
D 2 Credit points per unit of course
E 1 Credit points per unit of course
F 0 Credit points per unit of course

The semester GPA is then obtained as the ratio of the total number of credit points (TCP) to the total number of units (TNU) of courses offered during the semester. Therefore, GPA = TCP/TNU.
