Ferdinand | EducationGhana | December 27 | 2023: Grading System and How to calculate CGPA in Colleges of Education
This article relates to Colleges of Education affiliated with the University of Education, Winneba but is also the same as other Colleges of Education in Ghana.
Variables Needed for Computation
The following shall be required for the calculation of the Numerical Representation of Academic Performance
Calculating the Weighted Grade Point (WGP)
The figure below shows the weighting for scores (i.e., raw examination marks) used for calculating the Weighted Grade Point (WGP)
BACHELOR OF EDUCATION DEGREE
The Weighted Grade Point (WGP) = Grade Point for Letter
Grade x Credit Hours for the course
Calculation of the CGPA
Total Grade Point for Semester (TGP) = Sum of all WGPs for the Semester Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) = TGP / Sum of Semester’s Credit Hours (TCR)
CGPA is similar to SGPA, taking all years spent as if it were a semester
Sample Computation of the CGPA
Using the formula in 4.4.2 above, the CGPA for the student at the end of semester two of the program shall be 2.33. Note that the first semester was 2.73. CGPA must be > 1 .00 to progress from level to level.
GPA for Trailing and Repeating Courses
If a student passes a trailed/repeated course, both grades will appear on the student’s transcript and will be used in the computation of his/her academic performance.
For instance, a 3-credit course with an ‘E’ grade (i.e., GP=0) at the first 6·1 attempt, and an ‘A’ grade (i.e., GP=4) at the second attempt shall attract a total of 6 credits hours (i.e., 3 credits weighted twice) making the CR 6.
This new CCR for that semester will be shown on the Transcript. The computation of the GPA, therefore, becomes 4/6 = 0.66
