How is UOG CGPA calculated
So, you’ve just finished your
first semester at USKT and you want to know how well
you’re doing. You probably don’t know yet
what a good cgpa is or what grades equate to A’s and B’s and so on. That certainly makes it difficult to figure out how well you’re doing.
This is where this article comes in.
You want to know what your current cgpa is? You’ve come to the right place then. Let’s get started with an explanation on how grades work at USKT and then we’ll see how to calculate your cgpa.
First of all, you need to know that USKT uses a points system. The number of points corresponding with the number of hours you spend in class is the basis for your grade. I’ll give some examples so it’s easier to understand.
- A 1 -hour class gives you 20 points.
- A 2 -hour class gives you 40 points.
So as you see, the number of hours does matter when it comes to grades at USKT. Let’s take a look at how this system is applied:
A 95-100% = Grade A. You get 100 points.
A / B+ 85-94% = Grade B+. You get 80 points.
B+ 70-84% = Grade B. You get 65 points.
C+ 60-69% = Grade C+. You get 55 points.
C 50-59% = Grade C. You get 45 points.
D 40-49% = Grade D. You get 35 points.
E 30-39% = No grade, because you didn’t pass the exam/classwork and it would be unfair to give you a grade when you didn’t do anything about it.
F 0-29% = Grade F, also known as a fail. You get 25 points.
Now that you know how grades work at USKT, let’s move on to how to find out your cgpa in a few simple steps. I’ll use the example from above with all the grades and corresponding points for better understanding:
In this example, we have two students who completed eight classes throughout the semester. These are their grades:
So since our first student has an average of 86%, he gets 86 points for his cgpa calculation, while our second student has an average of 80%, so she gets 80 points for her cgpa calculation. But how do we actually calculate this? Here’s how:
1. Add the number of points you received for each class (e.g. 30+40+45+50=165).
2. Divide this sum by the total amount of classes taken during the semester (e.g 165/8=21,25).
3. Multiply it by 100 to get your percentage (21,25*100=210,25%). This is your cgpa!
Now that you know how to find out your cgpa at USKT, let’s look at the average cgpas on campus so you have some more reference points when people ask about yours 🙂
- – Average cgpa: 90%
- – Average cgpa: 85%
- – Average cgpa: 70%
