Is This My CGPA Useless As A Pharmacy Student? by McJane(f): 4:41pm On Mar 22
Holla amigos!

I'm Jane, a 200L pharmacy student. I just finished my 100L second semester exams last month and all our results are out! (yeah, my school's that fast grin)
Good news is that the list of those who crossed over to pharmacy school is out and guess whose name is there? Yeaaaaa it's ur girl, wink
Now I'm currently wrapped up in confusion because a colleague of mine just told me that My CGPA is useless angry I'm like howww? And she told me that it doesn't start counting from 100L, but from 200L
Now I'm in severe pain because my CGPA of 4.905 is about to go down the drain, all my sleepless night? angry

So out of curiosity I brought it to my elders on Nairaland to confirm the authenticity of this?

Also I want to clarify from med students, what's the criteria for graduating with a distinction in B.pharm?

The CGPA of the 200L pharmacy that you are about to start is useless and about to go down the drain?

How come?

Do you plan to sleep the night away for your remaining levels and let this "colleague of mine" curse and control your future?

I don't think I understand you.

I just think the sleepness nights you plan to have in your 200L will improve your CGPA and no useless colleague can change that fact unless you let them.

In fact, I suggest you get new colleagues, but I confess I'm no pharmacist, so perhaps listen more to the experts.

It is still GPA , it's when you get to 200l that it becomes CGPA the C there means cumulative , your school didn't give you guys the proper orientation or maybe you chose not to go. So you grade in 100 level can affect your grade in 400 level
Well your GPA is very is just like your foundation , and it's good don't mind that your colleague

I won't say your Cgpa is useless, I can only tell you that in pharmacy school, the result is unclassified except school like unibadan that still make use of Cgpa for pharmacy. My advice to you is to continue studying hard, pharmacy is not going to be easy. I wish you well and hope you will join us in the Noble profession of druggist.

You are asking if your success is useful.
What's the meaning of that??
Ok.
Let me ask my own unholy question.
Is your entire education or academic progession starting from creche useful
Your colleague or whatever that means to you shouldn't determine whether your academic progession is useful to you or not.
You should know the importance of your academic results.
Thou shalt not ask unholy questions because asking such questions remains an abomination in the realm of those with flames in their heads.

Hello Jane, a medical student here. I understand what you mean but your GP is not useless, it's the evidence of your hardwork! Be proud you had that however, don't rest on your oars. Work hard to keep having good performances like this till you graduate.

Also, you have a high chance of winning many scholarships so apply for as many as you can wink

Good luck.

The only time a pharmacy students CGPA is useful in my school is when a pharmacy student graduates as the best student else it is unclassified. But heah! Who says you can't work hard? + your cgpa is a product of how much you've known ... Though not all the time!

Ur topic says Medical student.

Meanwhile I don't know much for pharmacy dept, but in medicine ur year 1 cgpa will go away with year 1.. From Year 2 till u graduate u only need to get 50%, we don't do first class , just BGS(best graduating Student)..

Year 1 CGPA will only give u an edge wen u apply for scholarships though..

Shallom, beside ure beautiful.

Useless in school and after. But if you want Masters outside Naija it can help boost your overall score
Re: Is This My CGPA Useless As A Pharmacy Student? by Zeeknow3245(m): 11:12pm On Mar 22
We should be careful how we use the word "Medical" In Nigeria they're are only two branches independent in medicine which is "Dentistry and Veterinary medicine" Google the definition of Pharmacy and you will see it is "Allied Health". For clarification it is "Dental student" and "Veterinary student (vet student).
For Generalisation Students in the College of Medicine which may comprise other disciplines are called Medical students.
Pharmacy has its Faculty. We are misusing the word "Medical" and that's why we're having problem in the Health sector.
Your CGPA is good but doesn't pharmacy give just distinction or pass?

It should count. Perhaps what your colleague was trying to say is that the weight of your 100level cgpa in your final cgpa is low. What that means is that even if you perform badly in your 100 level, but picked up subsequently, you still end up with a good cgpa. For example, the weighted score of 100 level may be 15%, 200 level 25%, 300level 30%, 400level 20%, and 500level, 10%. If u do badly in 100 or 500 level, it may not dent your final cgpa as much as if you did badly in 200, 300, and 400 level. Conversely, if you do very well in 100 and 500 levels, it wouldn't mean much if you do badly in the other levels.

The good thing is that doing well in 100level gives you the impetus to continue going strong. Do not slack. Go girl!
