THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ALL FRESH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
This is not a new development as it has been sounded out to universities since December 2012. Before i proceed, to dispel any ambiguity, these two issues are only going to affect students that will register for the 2013/2014 academic session onwards. The students can either be UTME(100 level) or DE(200 level).
1. NO E (44-40) IN GRADING
Initially, we all know that:
100-70 is A,
69-60 is B,
59-50 is C,
49-45 is D,
44-40 is E,
40-0 is F.
Well, the grading system has changed as such, from 2013/2014 academic session onwards, from 44-0 will be F!!! ie no more E
Please note that though this affects 200 level DE students that gained admission in 2013/2014 academic session, it does not affect the 200 level students they will meet (the ones that were admitted in 2012/2013 academic session and did 100 level)
2. NO PASS DEGREE
There used to be a class of degree called the "Pass Degree"(with CGPA 1.5 downwards). This has also been scrapped off the board as can be seen by the statement issued by NUC below:
"The National Universities Commission (NUC) has abolished the award of pass degrees in Nigerian Universities.
In a release signed by the Ag. Director, Academic standards, Mrs Florence Asemadahun addressed to Vice-chancellors of various Universities, the NUC stated that the classification of degrees in the Nigerian Universities terminates at third class. The classification is as follows:
First class division (100 - 70 with 5.00 - 4.50 as CGPA)
Second class Upper division (69 - 60 with 4.49 - 3.50 CGPA)
Second class lower division (49 - 50 with 3.49 - 2.40 CGPA)
Third class division (49 - 45 with 2.39 - 1.50 CGPA).
It follows therefore, that third Class is the least class of degree in the Nigerian Universities."
FOR 1 ABOVE: No more hanging by the thread as statistic of results in most universities show E (44 - 40) running away with almost 43% of the votes.
FOR 2 ABOVE: Once you graduate with a CGPA below 1.5, you will by then have officially wasted all the years and resources you spent in school.
i. 0.5 - below is now the threshold for "To withdraw from the University" instead of 0.3
ii. 1.0 - below is "Sessional Probation" which if not improved in one (1) academic session, will lead to "withdraw from course" aka change of department and demotion to 100 level.
I hereby advise all fresh students to buckle up and put their best of efforts as it is going to get much harder in a system that is riddled with unbearable hardship and pitfalls.
All the best!!!

This came from a circular sent by NUC to all universities which I can't get hold of to maybe scan and upload. I would advise you to take this message seriously.
