Here are your online semester GPA and CGPA Calculators for Nigerian Universities with 5.0 and 4.0 scale. You don’t need to go into registrar office and wait for hours anymore… With a calculator at hand, you will get the results in seconds and have the advantage of reference anytime.

Now the calculator gives you a chance to cross-check your results and find out errors if there have been any.


Nigeria GPA grading system

According to NUC, the standard grading scale in Nigeria is 5.00 with effect from 2018/2019. I am also aware that some university still makes use of a 4.00 grading scale. So to make things easy, there are 3 types of GPA Calculator here that you can use at your convenience.


Other Conversion Scales

The scale above is the most common GPA conversion scale used by schools and universities in Nigeria. Some universities also use, for example, both A- A+ B+ C+ C- for more precision. This type of grading scale is mostly used in International universities. But if your school make do of this, you should use the GPA calculator below.


Is E a passing grade in the Nigeria.?

For those Nigeria universities using 5.00 grading scale, E is a passing grade. But for universities using a 4.00 grading scale, having E is definitely a fail. Moreover, E grade is never a good mark. It is commonly known as ‘let my people go”


Why is GPA important

Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. It’s meant you score (usually on a GPA scale between 1.0 and 4.0 or 5.0) during your studies and shows whether your grades have been high or low overall in your classes. This number is then used to assess whether you meet the standards and expectations set by the degree programme or university.


How do I keep a high GPA?

Maintaining a high GPA isn’t always easy; and if you start with a low GPA at the beginning of your study degree study, it is much harder to raise your GPA later on. But, on the other hand, if you continue to exceed in your courses, and you happen to slip in your 3rd year with a less-than-average grade, your GPA will not be severely damaged. So, I will often recommend – especially for freshers – to take  100 level examination more serious so that you have a better chance of starting with a higher GPA.

Your GPA will change and vary throughout the years; but having in mind what your GPA is every semester will give you a good indication of how well you are doing in your courses overall (and, perhaps, whether you need to improve).


GPA vs overall CGPA

To understand the differences between GPA and overall CGPA, you must first know that they both refer to the average grades of a student. The difference is that the GPA covers shorter periods, like a term or a semester. CGPA refers to the average grades obtained by a student throughout his entire academic experience. This means it includes grades from all terms and semesters.
