systems used are mostly on a four-point scale: Undergraduates
are expected to complete their courses with C average or better
while graduates require no less than a B average.
Students securing 'Grade F' in any course(s) will require to redo
the course before staring advanced courses. However, many graduate
students consider a grade below 'C' unacceptable as it could affect
to the above regular grades, certain universities offer grades
- In Progress
An IP grade means that the student has not completed all the
portions of a multi-portioned class that is taken over multiple
semesters to earn the regular grade. The IP would be changed to
regular grade once all the portions are completed.
or NIC- Not Complete Or Incomplete
This grade indicates that the student has missed some exams, assignments
or homework that are important to evaluate performance.
This grade indicates that the student has decided not to enroll
for the course after attending the classes for more than a predetermined
also offer intermediary grades, the grading scale being A+, A,
A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D- and F. while representing
as GPA an A+ grade may represent A GPA OF 4.00, or above, A to
3.67, A- corresponds to 3.3,similarly B+ to 3.0, B to 2.67,B-
to 2.3 and C+ to 2, C to 1.67, C- to 1.3 and so on.
However the final GPA that a student graduates with is not a simple
average, it is a weighted average. The weight is the number of
credit hours that are predetermined by the faculty based on the
course contents and displayed in the course schedule.
GPA = letter grade value * credit hours/ credit hours.
If you take
5 courses with course 1, 2 and 3 with 3 credit hours, course 4
with 2 credit hours and course 5 with 4 credit hours, and receive
an "A" in each of the courses, your GPA is (15 x 4) / 15 = 4.0.
