Grading System

The Grade Point Average is the weighted sum of the grade points earned, divided by the number of courses in which the grade points were earned. The cumulative grade point average, which normally appears at the end of a transcript, is based on all courses taken at the university for which grades have been assigned. Generally, individual courses are graded as follows :

Letter Grade Grade Point Value Percentage Description
A+/A0/A- 4.5/4.3/4.0 100-97/96-94/93-90 Excellent
B+/B0/B- 3.5/3.3/3.0 89-87/86-84/83-80 Good
C+/C0/C- 2.5/2.3/2.0 79-77/76-74/73-70 Adequate
D+/D0/D- 1.5/1.3/1.0 69-67/66-64/63-60 Marginal
