CALCULATION OF FGPA

in the

University of Ghana

Presented by:

Fred Yoku

At the

18 – 20th January 2017

Organised by the

Office of the Dean, Student Affairs

CALCULATION OF FGPA

Terminologies in the Official Transcript from UG

1.CCT- Cumulative Credits Taken

2.CCP- Cumulative Credits Passed

CCT CALCULATION

This is the sum of all credit hours in courses taken.

It is usually based on course codes and not course titles

It is calculated once.

CCP CALCULATION

This is the sum of all credit hours of passed courses

Grades A to D are calculated here

CALCULATION OF GPA

 • GPAs are semester specific • GPA= Total GPT/Total Credit Code Credit Grade GPT E.g: 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

CALCULATION OF GPA cont.

Total GPT=49.5

Total Credits= 15

GPA= 49.5/15 GPA= 3.3

CALCULATION OF CGPA

This is for the total semesters a student has taken examinations in the university

All levels carry equal weight

CGPA= Total GPTs of all courses taken/ Total Number of Credits of all courses taken

Assuming you’ve taken examination in Level 400 second semester, the GPTs and Credits will be calculated from L100 first and second semesters, L200 first and second semesters, L300 first and second semesters and L400 first and second semesters.

CALCULATION OF FGPA

GPAs for the various levels are recalculated

All courses are calculated under their correct levels

Every re-sit course is calculated the number of times it is taken. Assuming a student wrote UGRC120 in Level 100 and got a grade F, wrote again in level 200 and got an E and wrote finally in Level 300 and got an A the course will appear three times with its respective credits and GPTs.

CALCULATION OF FGPA cont.

A weighting of 1:1:2:2 is then assigned to all the levels. This means that L100 is 1, L200 is 1, L300 is 2 and L400 is 2

Assuming after the recalculation we get GPAs for the various levels as follows:

L100- 3.20

L200- 3.60

L300- 2.90

L400- 3.00

CALCULATION OF FGPA cont.

Our FGPA will be calculated as below: L100

3.20× 1/6= 0.53 L200

3.60× 1/6= 0.60

L300

2.90× 2/6= 0.96

L400

3.00× 2/6= 1.00

CALCULATION OF FGPA cont.

FGPA= 0.53 + 0.60 + 0.96 + 1.00 = 3.09

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
