GPA= Total GPT/Total Credit

 

 Course Code                          Credit                      Grade                       GPT

PHCL101                                 3                                 C+                               7.50

SOCI121                                   3                                 B                                 9.00

SREL111                                   3                                 B+                               10.50

UGRC120                                3                                 A                                 12.00

UGRC140                                3                                 B+                               10.50

 

Total                                           15                                                                  49.5

 

GPA= 49.5/15

GPA= 3.3

 

Determining Final Grade Point Average (FGPA)

 

Assuming after the calculation Afua got GPAs for the various levels as follows:

Level 100- 3.20

Level 200- 3.60

Level 300- 2.90

Level 400- 3.00

 

Afua’s FGPA will be calculated as below:

Level 100 3.20× 1/6= 0.53

Level 200 3.60 × 1/6= 0.60

Level 300 2.90 × 2/6= 0.96

Level 400 3.00 × 2/6= 1.00

 

FGPA = 0.53 + 0.60 + 0.96 + 1.00 = 3.09

Afua’s Class: Second Class (Honours) Upper Division

 

Degree Classification

  • First Class - 3.60 – 4.00
  • Second Class (Upper Division) - 3.00 – 3.59
  • Second Class (Lower Division) - 2.00 – 2.99
  • Third Class - 1.50 – 1.99
  • Pass -1.00 - 1.49
  • Fail (No award) - 0.00 - 0.99
