New Score Grading And CGPA System In Nigerian Universities by Obinnau(m): 8:41am On Oct 15, 2016
The NUC is no longer using a scale of 5, the new system is based on a scale of 4. First Class is 3.5 - 4. Second Class is 3 - 3.49. second class lower is 2.0 - 2.99. I was shocked that upon recalculation my CGPA which was 4.0 using the scale of 5 turned to 2.93 in the scale of 4, not even up to second class upper. This is not good.

does that mean all Universities must adhere to this from this year onwards.......and does it affect those already in 100level to final year or just those recently admitted....i'm confused here

Hw did you calculate it? Coz 4.0/5.0 is equivalent to 3.2/4.0....check ur calculation again.

weighted mean.
davbravo:
The method you used to convert it isnt what will be used by the school....... for eg being on a 4.0 cgpa on a 5.0scale is equal to getting B's in all your courses.... but with this method getting B's in all courses is equal to 3.0 on the 4.0 scale...... what if he had a mixture of diff grades in his courses to get that 4.0( maybe some A's, B's, C's, E's, etc)..... on a 5.0 scale, E is 1point but on 4.0, it's 0.....so for all the E's he might have gotten, he had no points for them, so this brought down the cgpa from a 3.0 to a 2.93cgpa............

This practically implies that they're lowering the standard at the universities. If 3.5/4 is the least required to make first class, what it amounts to on a scale of 5 is 4.375/5 as against the 4.5/5 which has been the least requirement all these while.

You didn't cal. it well. 4.0 on a scale of 5 is sec. Class upper. When cal. It on a scale of 4, then you have 4.0/5×4 which will giv u 3.2 on a scale of 4.
