Can someone graduate with a first class after failing a course


It's rare especially in places like UI, Uniilorin, UNN etc

yes possible...it depends on the unit load of the course failed!

It has nothing to do with unit load calculation in some schools.

The best you may get is 2:1

Yes! Just try to get an A or worse, a B when re-writing the failed course.
If you can make 'A's in 90% 0f all the courses offered, you will have 1st class regardless what grade you have in the remaining 10%.

just curious though. does it mean the carry over course get added to one's CGPA when one resit and performed well in it?

Also depends on if the course is a borrowed course or a core subject.

Yes. The grades have points, and it's like this,
A=5
B=4
C=3
D=2
E=1 (if still applicable)
F=0

Let's say the course unit is 3. To calculate the GPA, you multiply ur grade point with the course unit, and the divide the answer with the course unit again. E.g, A = 5x3=15, 15÷3= 5.00. To calculate CGPA, add all multiples of your grade points together and divide by the sum of all your courses units.

Now let's say:
100 level
1st sem: 3unit chm101=A, 2unit mat101=F
2nd sem: 3unit chm102=A, 2unit mat102=A

200 level
1st sem: 3unit chm201=A, 2unit mat201=A and 2unit mat101=A (carried over)

Now let's calculate your CGPA up to 1st sem 200 level.

Couses/grade units points
100 level 1st&2nd sem
Chm 101 A. 3. 15
Mat 101 F. 2. 0
Chm 102 A. 3. 15
Mat 102 A. 2. 10
200 level 1st sem
Chm 201 A. 3. 15
Mat 201 A. 2. 10
Mat 101 A. 2. 10
------—------------------------------------
17. 75

CGPA at 200 1st sem will be 75÷17= 4.41

Let say you didn't write mat 101 again and pass with an A, then our calculation becomes:

Couses/grade units points
100 level 1st&2nd sem
Chm 101 A. 3. 15
Mat 101 F. 2. 0
Chm 102 A. 3. 15
Mat 102 A. 2. 10
200 level 1st sem
Chm 201 A. 3. 15
Mat 201 A. 2. 10
------—------------------------------------
15. 65
CGPA will be 4.33


So re-sitting and scouring an A has added 0.8 to the CGPA.

Yes, if you gather enough 5.0s in the remaining semesters you have. More possible if you're studying a five-year course.

Good luck.

Ok. Thank you.

An emphatic Yes.
As long as you get an A when you rewrite it.

Our BGS failed her Engineering drawing in 200 level, but got an A when she rewrote it.


Wow! I'm inspired.
