Grade Point Average (GPA)
The GPA is the system on which Honours (classes) and Passes are awarded. The GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned throughout a student’s study period (excluding the First Year in Arts) by the number of minimum required CUs. For a three-year Degree program this minimum number of CUs is 22 while for a four-year Degree program is 32.
Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA)
GPA = Σ GP/N
ΣGP = Total of grade points
N = Number of CUs
When a student has completed more CU(s) than the minimum number stipulated in the By-Laws, the grade points of all completed CUs by the student will be taken in to account for the GPA calculation.
Cut-off Points of GPA
1st Class = GPA ≥ 3.50
2nd Upper = 3.25 ≤ GPA < 3.50
2nd Lower = 3.00 ≤ GPA < 3.25
Ordinary pass = 2.00 ≤ GPA < 3.00
