Approved Student Result Grading
System - NOUN

For the NOUN result grading system
update, note that if you score A in any course, the point is 5. If you score B
in any course, the point is 4. If you score C in any course, the point is 3. If
you score D in any course, the point is 2. If you score E in any course, the
point is 1. And if you score F in any course, the point is 0.

Under the Newly Approved Five
(5)-Point Grading Scale, grades to be used for students who have satisfactorily
completed the course of study at the National Open University of Nigeria are as
follows:

Letter Grade & Marks Grade
Points

A = (70% and above) 5 =
Excellent

B = (60 - 69%) 4 = Very Good

C = (50 - 59%) 3 = Good

D = (45 - 49%) 2 = Fair

E = (40 - 44%) 1 = Pass

F = (0 - 39%) 0 = Fail

Grade Point Average (GPA) and
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) Calculations

At the end of NOUN
examinations, student's grades are calculated using the NOUN GPA and CGPA
formula below.

The raw scores are recorded and
are weighted to produce a single point average for each of the courses
registered for, and for which students have written the Tutor-Marked
Assignments and Examinations.

Formula For Calculation of GPA

Grade Point Average (GPA) is
calculated by adding up all credit units earned for the semester and dividing
the figure gotten by the number of credit units registered for the semester.
This calculation results in a mathematical mean or average

The GPA is computed on a
semester basis. The formula for calculating GPA is as follows

GPA =
CUE

_____

CUR

CUE = Credit Unit
Earned

CUR = Credit Unit
Registered

Calculation and Illustration

Courses -- Score -- Grade
Weighted Grade

ECO121 -- 67 -- B

ECO122 -- 75 -- A

ECO153 -- 46 -- D

ECO154 -- 54 -- C

ECO146 -- 73 -- A

Total

GPA = CUE = 54 = 3.92

____

CUR = 14

NOUN CGPA Calculations

The cumulative grade point
average (CGPA) is the Total Credit Unit Earned (TCUE) divided by the Total
Credit Unit Registered (TCUR). The CGPA is calculated at the end of two (2) or
more semesters. The formula for calculating CGPA is as follows:

CGPA = TCUE

______

TCUR

TCUE = Total Credit Unit
Earned

TCUR = Total Credit Unit
Registered

Class of Degree

NOUN CGPA Ranges under the new
Five (5)-Point Grading Scale for Classification of Degrees.

Class of degree is assigned
based on the CGPA upon completion of the programme, and is presented:

First Class Honours (4.5 -
5.00)

Second Class Honours [Upper
Division] (3.5 - 4.49)

Second Class Honours [Lower
Division] (2.5 - 3.49)

Third Class (1.5 - 2.49)

Quick Notes For Good Academic
Standing

In order to be in good
standing, you must maintain an average of 1.5 and above.

In National Open University and
other conventional universities, anyone that has below 1.5 CGPA will be advised
to withdraw after three semesters, and NO student whose CGPA is less than 1.0
shall be awarded a degree.

In addition, you must
meet all degree award requirements; that is, you must pass compulsory courses
and electives up to the minimum total number of credit units required and
pass all compulsory GST courses.

How To Calculate NOUN Exam
Result Using New Grading Scale

Multiply the points by the unit
of each course to get the grade point for a particular course.

E.g:

If you score A in a 3 unit
course, it means 3x5 = 15.

If you score B in a 2 unit
course, it means 2x4 = 8.

If you score F in a 3 unit
course, it means 3x0 = 0.

If you score A in a zero unit
course, it means 0x5 = 0. And so on.

NOUN Examination Result Sample

Here's a sample of NOUN result
(course code, unit of the course and the score):

CIT101 (2units) A

MTH103 (3units) B

BIO101 (2units) D

MTH101 (3units) F

GST101 (0unit) A

The result calculations are
shown below;

Total Credits Carried = 10

Total Credits Earned = 7

Total Points Earned = (2x5 +
3x4 + 2x2 + 3x0 + 0x5) = (10 + 12 + 4 + 0 + 0) = 26

CGPA = 26/10 = 2.6 (Second Class Honours Lower)
