THE COURSE CREDIT AND GRADING SYSTEM

The course credit system is where subject areas are broken down into course units which are examinable and for students to earn credits, if passed. The courses are arranged into levels and labeled as 100 (for year one course), 200 (for year two courses) and so on.

CREDIT UNIT

Courses are assigned weights called CREDIT UNITS. A credit unit represents the number of student/teacher contact hours per week per semester. One credit is generally taken to represent one hour of lecture of tutorial per week per semester. There are some exceptions which can be clarified by individual departments.

Teaching practice which earns 6 credits lasts approximately 12 weeks.

STUDENT WORKLOAD

Every full time student is required to register for a minimum of 18 and a maximum of 24 credit units per semester, except for students on Fieldworks or Industrial Attachment.

GRADE POINT (GP)

The grade point derives from the actual percentage raw score points earned in the courses taken during the semester. It is obtained by multiplying the Grade Point attained in each course by the number of credit units assigned to that course, and then summing these up and dividing by the total numbers of credit units taken for the semester.

1. The College grading system uses letters A-F.

2. The Percentage Score, Letter Grades, Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and the status of pass are:

A minimum pass mark of 40% (Equivalent to Grade Point of 1) should be adopted by all colleges. Also, a minimum GPA of 1,000 is required for graduation.

WITHDRAWAL

If a student's CGPA falls below 1.00 at the end of the period of probation, he will be required to withdraw from the College.

CONDITIONS FOR PROBATION AND WITHDRAWAL

REPEATING FAILED COURSE UNIT OR CARRY-OVER

Subject to the conditions above, a student may be allowed to repeat a failed course unit at the next available opportunity. In completing his course registration form, such a student is required to register for the failed courses first before the new courses. However, a student can not register for more than a total of 24 credit units, and that the grades earned at all the attempts will count towards the calculation of the CGPA.
