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?
Don't worry, just do the right thing at the right time and you will get it up, at least you are still better than that jobless and lazy girl on this forum are seek attention like her life depends on it

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.

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.

Do having a 4.5 above have no effect on ur degree since it's unclassified?

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!

Wait ooo so having 4.5 above in ur finals does get u a distinction in B.pharm ?

It's now I just understood your question..every GPA counts right from year1.. you having that high GPA is very good..just continue with that and forget about that your novice friend.. maybe he/she just want to make you unserious..

GPA is the result of the 1st semester of a student's first year. Any other subsequent result is cgpa.

Zeeknow3245:
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?

LOL, u still got it wrong pharmacy isn't an allied health course, it's a pharmaceutical course as it stands on its own. But still I get ur point

Yes it does

Lordsagna:
OP, you're not a medical student rather a pharmacy student cos pharmacy is a faculty on it own not under the department in college of medicine...... your cgpa is good keep it up...
Thanks, I've edited it.

HitRun:
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!


Woahhhh! This one is new, I've never heard of this before, how on earth will they calculate it with all this percentile?

gringrin. Pharmacy is Still Allied Health because of they don't have a Say in particular about any patient even those working as Clinical Pharmacist cannot make a Say on a Patient health except informing the Doctor about Drug interactions and adverse effect of drugs. The only interactions they have is prescribing drugs especially and brainstorming with Nurses and Doctors to see which drug is more suitable since a Pharmacist has a more comprehensive knowledge of Drug dosage and combinations more than a Doc which is not an argument.
You don't go to the hospital to see a Pharmacist,A lab scientist or a radiographer. You go to see a Nurse (Midwife especially) or a Medical Doctor.
Most Nigerians should mind their business and do their Job and get the f*ck out.
They're always fighting and it isn't good.

Holla!

If you are scared of a seller running away with your money when you pay for a product or service online, you might want to consider using my escrow service.

If you are also scared of ending up with sub-standard items or being sent the wrong item with no way to redeem yourself, you should consider my escrow service.

Trust is a necessity for closing any business deal whether online or offline.

My escrow service is here to promote that trust and help both buyers and sellers transact effortlessly and without any fear of getting duped.

As an escrow service provider, I'll be the third-party in any transaction you'll carry out online.

If you are paying for anything online, I'll hold your money in trust. This way your buyers will only get the money when you are satisfied with the items you receive.

See reviews of my services on nairaland by nairalanders!

As a seller, if you are finding it difficult to convince your customers about the credibility of your business, you might want to ask them to use my escrow service. That way, they will be sure of getting their items and this will facilitate smoother transactions for your business.

My fee is from as low as N300 to N1,000 which can be shared by both the buyer and seller. I believe this is a small price to pay for the safety of your funds and trusts.

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

It is already CGPA. That's two semester result so it is cumulative. You only get GPA in your first semester.

Ask that your uninformed (colleague?) coursemate/schoolmate whether your part 1 GPA will be omitted if/when you request a transcript.
For your own good, relish the grade and be spurred to work harder. It will count.
You're just about to begin studying pharmacy.
All the best.
Re: Is This My CGPA Useless As A Pharmacy Student? by Nickson6969(m): 2:57pm On Mar 23

Not true.

Once a student has more than 1 graded Semester, the figure becomes a Cumulative GPA.

A GPA is for a single semester or Your 100L first semester grade.
