CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT 40%
END-OF-SEMESTER EXAMINATION 60%

The Continuous Assessment component consists of take-home assignments, class quizzes and tests, term papers, and practical work. This component gives students the chance to demonstrate their abilities in a wider variety of learning tasks and a broader variety of work environments than is possible under formal examination conditions.

For example, through continuous assessment students can learn the values and processes of teamwork, plan, and solve real-life problems. There shall be a minimum of two (2) Continuous Assessments per course per semester.

Duration of End-of-Semester Examinations

The duration of end-of-semester examinations is determined by the credit weighting of the course as follows:

Credit Weighting Duration of Examination
One-Credit Course 1-1½ hours
Two-Credit Course 1½-2 hours
Three-Credit Course 2-3 hours
Practical Courses 2-3 hours

Grading Scale

The University uses letter grades and corresponding numerical weightings which reflect the quality of performance. Total raw scores (Combination of continuous assessment and end-of-semester examination) are converted according to the following scheme:

Raw Score Grade Grade Point Interpretation
80 – 100 A 4.0 Excellent
75 – 79 B+ 3.5 Very Good
70 – 74 B 3.0 Good
65 – 69 C+ 2.5 Average
60 – 64 C 2.0 Fair
55 – 59 D+ 1.5 barely satisfactory
50 – 54 D 1.0 Weak Pass
Below 50 E Fail

Other Grades

Audit – The grade point is zero.

Incomplete (IC) – A student is graded IC when he/she misses one or more components of the assessment.

NOTE

  1. It is the responsibility of students to ensure that all ICs are rectified
  2. An IC should be rectified within 2 weeks after the release of end-of-semester examinations results
  3. An IC not rectified after the deadline will be converted to the corresponding grade.

Display of Results

End-of-Semester examinations results shall be posted in students’ portals before the re-opening date of the following semester.

All continuous assessment results shall be displayed on the departmental notice boards two (2) weeks before the start of end-of-semester examinations.

Computation of Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

A sample of how the computation is done is presented below:

2017/2018 SEMESTER 1

Code Description Credit Point (CP) Letter Grade Grade Point (GP) CP×GP
Eco 101 PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS 1 3 B 1 9
LSB 104 BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEMS 3 A 2 12
EPS 111 PSYCHOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION 3 C 1.5 6
CMS 107 COMMUNICATION SKILLS 3 B 2 9
ASP 102A RELIGION IN AFRICA 3 A 2 12
GPA CGPA: Total Credits: 15 48
GPA/CGPA : 3.2
Total (CP×GP)

GPA=Total (CP) =3.2

The sum of the product of credit points for a course (the course weighting) and the grade point for the course divided by the sum of the course weightings for all courses on the semester.
In computing the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) all the courses are treated as if they were taken in one semester.

Note: Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is not the same as the average of GPAs for the various semesters

CGPA=

Degree Classification

Undergraduate degree programmes are classified according to the candidate’s Cumulative Grade Point Average [CGPA]. The classifications are as follows:

CLASS DESIGNATION C.G.P.A.
1st Class 3.6 – 4.0
2nd Class [Upper Division] 3.0 – 3.5
2nd Class [Lower Division] 2.5 – 2.9
3rd Class Division 2.0 – 2.4
