Learn about the Taraba State University (TASU) Grading System, Students Assessment System, NUC 5-point grading system in Nigeria Universities, and also know how to add and calculate your First (1st) and Second (2nd) Semester Test and Examination GP, aggregates, scores, CGPA & GPA at the end of the academic session. Stay focused and read through.

TASU Students Assessment System

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT  :       30%

END-OF-SEMESTER EXAMINATION: 70%

The Continuous Assessment component consists of take-home assignments, class quizzes and tests, term papers, and project work. This component gives students the chance to demonstrate their abilities on 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.

How to Calculate TASU Grade Point Average (GPA)

Every Course/subject/module carries a fixed number of Credit Units (CU). Quality points (QP) are derived from multiplying the Credit Units (CU) for a course by the Grade Point (GP) earned by the student in that course.

Eg. If in a 3 Credit Unit course, a student scores 63% which is a B with a Grade Point of 4, the Quality points for the student in that course is 3 x 4 = 12.

GPS is derived by dividing the Total Quality point (TQP) for the semester by the Total Credit Unit (TCU) for that semester.

Eg. If in a semester, a student earned 56 quality points for 18 Credit Units, the students GPA is 56/18 = 3.11

How to Calculate TASU Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

CGPA is derived by adding the Total Quality Points (TQP) for all semesters to date and dividing by the Total Credit Units (TCU) for all semesters to date.

Eg. If a student earns a QP of 56 for 18 CU in the first semester and earns QP of 67 for 20 CU in the second semester, His CGPA is TQP/TCU = (56 + 67) / (18 + 20) = 123/38 =3.24

Below is a detailed example of how to calculate GPA and CGPA

QP = 48, CU = 20, TQP = 66 + 48 = 114, TCU = 17 + 20 = 37

GPA = QP/CU = 48/20 = 2.40

CGPA = TQP/TCU = 114/37 = 3.08

NB: This Procedure is repeated for following years until your final year in school (graduation).

Nigeria Universities Grading System

In the National Universities Commission (NUC) standard, our higher institutions make use of Cumulative Grade Point Averages to measure Academic Excellence. We are going to show you how to calculate CGPA in Nigerian Universities.

It is vital that all university students, especially Freshers, study and learn how to calculate their GPA upon release of each semester’s result and to also make up the cumulative at the end of every session. Doing this will help you evaluate your academic performance from time to time.

Now Nigerian universities are seeing the consequences of their varied grading systems as they affect students’ chances of admission in and out of the country.

Grade Scale Grade Description US Grade
A 70.00 – 100.00 First Class Honours (5) A
AB 70.00 – 100.00 A
B 60.00 – 69.99 Second Class Honours, Upper (4) B+
BC 60.00 – 69.99 B+
C 50.00 – 59.99 Second Class Honours, Lower (3) B
CD 50.00 – 59.99 B
D 45.00 – 49.99 Third Class (2) C+
E 40.00 – 44.99 Pass (1) C
F 0.00 – 39.99 F

CGPA Scale in Nigerian Universities

Performance in semester examinations and assessments for courses/subjects/modules are classified into letter Grades (from A, B, C, D, E, to F) which represent a range of scores or marks a student can obtain. A particular grade point is assigned to these grades, see below.
