HOW TO CALCULATE GRADE POINTS AVERAGE (GPA) IN NIGERIAN POLYTECHNICS

Do you want to know how you can calculate your GPA/CGPA in Nigeria polytechnic? well below is the complete step by step guide on that:
The calculation of GPA in Nigeria polytechnics follows nearly the same procedure with that of Nigerian Universities. However Nigerian polytechnics make use of the following grading system in calculation of GPA and the awarding of Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and Higher National Diploma (HND):

Polytechnics Grading System Table:

Score (%)GradeGrade PointFinal CGPAClass Of Degrees
100-80A4.003.50 – 4.00Distinction
79-70AB3.503.00 – 3.49Upper Credit
60-69B3.002.50 – 2.99Lower Credit
59-50BC2.502.00 – 2.49Pass
49-40C2.000.00 – 1.99Fail
First Semester OND1 GPA Calculation

:
Assuming you offer the following courses and obtain scores that correspond to the following grades that lead to the distribution on the tables below. then you will your GPA as follows:

Course CodeCredit UnitGradeGrade PointsQuality Points (CU X GP)Total Points
Gsp 1012C2.002 x 2.004.00
Gsp 1052C2.002 x 2.004.00
Gsp 1112A4.002 x 4.008.00
Gsp 2012AB3.502 x 3.507.00
Cos 1012BC2.502 x 2.505.00
Sta 1312B3.002 x 3.006.00
Mth 2213C2.003 x 2.006.00
Total Credit Units1544

First Semester OND1:
GPA = Total points/Total Credit Units = 44.00/15 = 2.9.
Therefore your first semester ND1 GPA = 2.9.

Second Semester OND1 GPA Calculation

:
Assuming you offer the following courses and obtain scores that correspond to the following grades that lead to the distribution on the tables below. then you will your GPA as follows:

Course CodeCredit UnitGradeGrade PointsQuality Points (CU X GP)Total Points
Chm 1122A4.002 x 4.008.00
Gsp 2082E0.002 x 0.000.00
Gsp 1062c2.002 x 2.004.00
Gsp 2022C2.002 x 2.004.00
Bio 1523B3.003 x 3.009.00
Phy 1962BC2.502 x 2.505.00
Glg 1423C2.003 x 2.006.00
Total Credit Units1636

Second Semester GPA = Total points/Total Credit Units = 36.0/16 = 2.21875= 2.25.
Therefore your second semester ND1 GPA = 2.25.

Not, to calculate your cumulative grade point average (CGPA) for ND1 (first year), you add your ND1 first semester and second semester GPA and divide the result you obtain by two (2), i.e. the number of semester. This is simply finding the average.

Here it goes:
Your OND1 CGPA = (First Semester ND1 GPA + Second semester ND1 GPA) / 2 = (2.9 + 2.25) / 2.

CGPA = 5.15 / 2 = 2.575 = 2.58
The process is repeated for every semester result.

That should be all on how to calculate GPA (Grade Point Average) and CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) in Nigerian Polytechnics.
