University of Ghana (UG Legon) Grading System 2023 depends on CCT, CCP GPA, FGPA and GPT. These terminologies and how the University of Ghana is the topic of this post.
1. CCT- Cumulative Credits Taken
This is the sum of all credit hours in courses taken.
How to calculate your CCT
- It is usually based on course codes and not course titles
- It is calculated once
2. CCP- Cumulative Credits Passed
This is the sum of all credit hours of passed courses. Grades E and F are not regarded as pass, UG only considers Grades from A to D.
3. GPA- Grade Point Average
GPAs are semester-specific.
How to calculate UG GPA
The formula is simple,
GPA= TOTAL GPT/TOTAL CREDIT
Consider the table below for example.
- Total GPT=49.5
- Total Credits= 15
- GPA= 49.5/15
CALCULATION OF CGPA
This is for the total semesters a student has taken examinations in the University of Ghana. All levels carry equal weight.
The formula for calculating CGPA is simply,
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.
4. FGPA- Final Grade Point Average
How to Calculate UG 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.
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
Our FGPA will be calculated as below:
3.20× 1/6= 0.53 L200
3.60 × 1/6= 0.60 L300
2.90 × 2/6= 0.96
3.00 × 2/6= 1.00
FGPA= 0.53 + 0.60 + 0.96 + 1.00
Class: Second Class (Honours) Upper Division
UNIVERSITY OF GHANA DEGREE CLASSIFICATION
|First Class||3.60 – 4.00|
|Second Class (Upper Division)||3.00 – 3.59|
|Second Class (Upper Division)||2.00 – 2.99|
|Third Class||1.50 – 1.99|
|Pass||1.00 – 1.49|
|Fail (No award)||0.00 – 0.99|
