MUCG Grading System | How to Calculate Your FGPA

SHARE

The Methodist University of College Ghana, MUCG grading system has been set to rank the students graduating from the university in this academic year. This system sets students into the different class of degree ranging from first class, second class (upper and lower division) or pass.

MUCG Grading System

The Methodist University of College Ghana, MUCG operates a combination of Continuous Assessment and End-of-Semester examination system with the following weightings:

MUCG STUDENT ASSESSMENT SYSTEM

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT  :       40%

END-OF-SEMESTER EXAMINATION: 60%

The Continuous Assessment component consists of take-home assignment, class quizzes and tests, term papers, and project work. This component gives students the chance to demonstrate their abilities on a wider variety of learning tasks and a broader variety of work environments than is possible under formal examination conditions. For example, through Continuous Assessment students can learn the values and processes of teamwork, plan and solve real-life problems.

Duration of End-of-Semester Examination

The duration of end-of-semester examination is determined by the credit weighting of the course; the pattern is as follows:

CREDIT WEIGHTINGDURATION OF EXAMINATION
One-Credit Course1 – 1.5 hours
Two-Credit Course1.5 – 2 hours
Three-Credit Course2 – 3 hours

METHODIST UNIVERSITY COLLEGE GRADING SYSTEM

The University uses letter grades and numerical weightings corresponding to the letter grades. The numerical weightings reflect the quality of performance. Total numerical weightings reflect the quality of performance. Total raw scores (combination of continuous assessment and end-of-semester examination) are converted according to the following scheme:

MARKSGRADECREDIT POINTINTERPRETATION
80 – 100A4.0Outstanding
75 – 79B+3.5Very Good
70 – 74B3.0Good
65 – 69C+2.5Fairly Good
60 – 64C2.0Average
55 -59D+1.5Below Average
50 – 54D1.0Marginal Pass
45-49E0.5Unsatisfactory

HOW TO CALCULATE MUCG FGPA

This is a step-by-step guide on how to calculate your Final Grade Point Average (FGPA).

CALCULATION OF FGPA

Terminologies in the Official Transcript from MUCG

  1. CCT– Cumulative Credits Taken
  2. CCP– Cumulative Credits Passed
  3. GPA– Grade Point Average
  4. FGPA– Final Grade Point Average
  5. GPT– Grade Point

CCT CALCULATION

  • This is the sum of all credit hours in courses taken
  • It is usually based on course codes and not course titles
  • It is calculated once.

CCP CALCULATION

  • This is the sum of all credit hours of passed courses
  • Passed grades do not include grades E and F
  • Grades A to D are calculated here

HOW TO CALCULATE GPA FOR METHODIST UNIVERSITY COLLEGE GHANA

  • GPAs are semester specific
  • GPA= Total GPT/Total Credit

E.g.

CodeCredit       Grade     GPT
PHCL1013C+7.50
SOCI1213B9.00
SREL1113B+10.50
RC1203A12.00
RC1403B+10.50

Total GPT=49.5
• Total Credits= 15
• GPA= 49.5/15
GPA= 3.3

CALCULATION OF CGPA FOR MUCG

This is for the total semesters a student has taken examinations in the university
• All levels carry equal weight
• CGPA= Total GPTs of all courses taken/ Total Number of Credits of all courses taken
• Assuming you’ve taken an examination in Level 400 second semester, the GPTs and Credits will be calculated from L100 first and second semesters, L200 first and second semesters, L300 first and second semesters and L400 first and second semesters.

HOW TO CALCULATE FGPA FOR METHODIST UNIVERSITY COLLEGE GHANA

GPAs for the various levels are recalculated
• All courses are calculated under their correct levels
• Every re-sit course is calculated the number of times it is taken. Assuming a student wrote UGRC120 in Level 100 and got a grade F, wrote again in level 200 and got an E and wrote finally in Level 300 and got an A the course will appear three times with its respective credits and GPTs.

A weighting of 1:1:2:2 is then assigned to all the levels. This means that L100 is 1, L200 is 1, L300 is 2 and L400 is 2
• Assuming after the recalculation we get GPAs for the various levels as follows:
L100- 3.20
L200- 3.60
L300- 2.90
L400- 3.00

Our FGPA will be calculated as below:
L100
3.20× 1/6= 0.53
L200
3.60 × 1/6= 0.60
L300
2.90 × 2/6= 0.96
L400
3.00 × 2/6= 1.00

FGPA= 0.53 + 0.60 + 0.96 + 1.00
= 3.09

Class: Second Class (Honours) Upper Division

METHODIST UNIVERSITY DEGREE CLASSIFICATION

  • First Class – 3.60 – 4.00
  • Second Class (Upper Division) – 3.00 – 3.59
  • Second Class (Lower Division) – 2.00 – 2.99
  • Third Class – 1.50 – 1.99
  • Pass -1.00 – 1.49
  • Fail (No award) – 0.00 – 0.99
