The CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) is the major grading system in the University, that is, degrees are awarded based on a student’s CGPA upon completion of his/her undergraduate program. The CGPA is calculated based on scores obtained by a student in tests and exams taken. Below is a list explaining how a Bachelor’s degree is awarded based on a student’s CGPA in the University:
Bachelor’s Degree CGPA
First Class 4.50-5.00
Second Class Upper(2.1) 3.50-4.49
Second Class Lower(2.2) 2.50-3.49
Third Class 1.50-2.49
From the table above, we could see that a student whose CGPA falls within the range of 1.5-2.49 belongs in the third class category. While there is hope for a third class degree holder, it is advisable that every undergraduate student aims for nothing less than a Second Class Lower Division.
