## Table of the Polytechnic Grading System

Score (%) |
Grade |
Grade Point |
Final CGPA |
Class Of Degrees |

100-80 | A | 4.00 | 3.50 – 4.00 | Distinction |

79-70 | AB | 3.50 | 3.00 – 3.49 | Upper Credit |

60-69 | B | 3.00 | 2.50 – 2.99 | Lower Credit |

59-50 | BC | 2.50 | 2.00 – 2.49 | Pass |

49-40 | C | 2.00 | 0.00 – 1.99 | Fail |

## Calculation Of First Semester OND1 GPA

Assume you teach the following courses and receive scores that correspond to the following grades, which result in the distribution shown in the tables below. Then your GPA will be as follows:

Course Code |
Credit Unit |
Grade |
Grade Points |
Quality Points (CU X GP) |
Total Points |

Gsp 101 | 2 | C | 2.00 | 2 x 2.00 | 4.00 |

Gsp 105 | 2 | C | 2.00 | 2 x 2.00 | 4.00 |

Gsp 111 | 2 | A | 4.00 | 2 x 4.00 | 8.00 |

Gsp 201 | 2 | AB | 3.50 | 2 x 3.50 | 7.00 |

Cos 101 | 2 | BC | 2.50 | 2 x 2.50 | 5.00 |

Sta 131 | 2 | B | 3.00 | 2 x 3.00 | 6.00 |

Mth 221 | 3 | C | 2.00 | 3 x 2.00 | 6.00 |

Total Credit Units |
15 |
44 |

GPA = Total Points/Total Credit Units = 44.00/15 = 2.9 for First Semester OND1.

As a result, your first semester ND1 GPA is 2.9.

## Calculation Of Second Semester OND1 CGPA

Assume you teach the following courses and receive scores that correspond to the following grades, which result in the distribution shown in the tables below. Then your GPA will be as follows:

Course Code |
Credit Unit |
Grade |
Grade Points |
Quality Points (CU X GP) |
Total Points |

Chm 112 | 2 | A | 4.00 | 2 x 4.00 | 8.00 |

Gsp 208 | 2 | E | 0.00 | 2 x 0.00 | 0.00 |

Gsp 106 | 2 | c | 2.00 | 2 x 2.00 | 4.00 |

Gsp 202 | 2 | C | 2.00 | 2 x 2.00 | 4.00 |

Bio 152 | 3 | B | 3.00 | 3 x 3.00 | 9.00 |

Phy 196 | 2 | BC | 2.50 | 2 x 2.50 | 5.00 |

Glg 142 | 3 | C | 2.00 | 3 x 2.00 | 6.00 |

Total Credit Units |
16 |
36 |

Second Semester GPA = Total Points/Total Credit Units = 36.0/16 = 2.21875 = 2.25

As a result, your second semester ND1 GPA is 2.25.

To calculate your cumulative grade point average (CGPA) for ND1 (first year), add your ND1 first and second semester GPAs and divide the total by two (2), i.e. the number of semesters. This is simply calculating the average.

Your OND1 CGPA is equal to (First Semester ND1 GPA + Second Semester ND1 GPA) / 2 = (2.9 + 2.25) / 2.

5.15 / 2 = 2.575 = 2.58 CGPA

The procedure is repeated for each semester’s outcome.

That’s all there is to it when it comes to calculating GPA (Grade Point Average) and CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) in Nigerian Polytechnics.
