    Grade Point Average GPA and CGPA


    Grade point Average (GPA) is computed each semester to show the studentís academic standing. It is computed by multiplying each course credits by the grade points corresponding to the grade received, then adding all points earned and dividing the total by the number of credits in the semester .As the student progresses in his study, his transcript will show a grade point average for each semester as well as        a cumulative grade point average CGPA of all courses taken in different semesters. Students should earn a successful grade in each course studied.
    On graduation a general CGPA is calculated by adding the grade points for all courses studied and dividing the grand total by the total number of credits required for graduation.
