UNN Grading System: In this post, you will learn how the scores and grades are calculated, Also know How to Calculate UNN Semester GP, CGPA & GPA on your own at the end of academic session  The University of Nigeria, Nsukka Grading System has been released. full details below.
In NUC standard, our higher institutions make use of Cumulative Grade Point Averages to measure Academic Excellence. We are going to show you how to calculate CGPA in Nigerian Universities. It is vital that all university students, especially Freshers, study and learn how to calculate their GPA upon release of each semester’s result and to also make up the cumulative at the end of every session. Doing this will help you evaluate your academic performance from time to time and improve.
UNN STUDENT ASSESSMENT SYSTEM
CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT : 30%
ENDOFSEMESTER EXAMINATION: 70%
The Continuous Assessment component consists of takehome assignment, class quizzes and tests, term papers, and project work. This component gives students the chance to demonstrate their abilities on a wider variety of learning tasks and a broader variety of work environments than is possible under formal examination conditions. For example, through Continuous Assessment students can learn the values and processes of teamwork, plan and solve reallife problems.
CGPA Scale in Nigerian Universities
Performance in semester examinations and assessments for courses/subjects/modules are classified into letter Grades (from A, B, C, D, E, to F) which represent a range of score or marks a student can obtain. A particular grade point is assigned to these grades, see below.
Marks/Score 
Letter Grade 
Grade Point (GP) 
70% and Above 
A

60 – 69 
B 
4.00 
50 – 59 
C

D

How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average (GPA)
Every Course/subject/module carries a fixed number of Credit Units (CU). Quality points (QP) are derived from multiplying the Credit Units (CU) for a course by the Grade Point (GP) earned by the student in that course.
Eg. If in a 3 Credit Unit course, a student scores 63% which is a B with a Grade Point of 4, the Quality points for the student in that course is 3 x 4 = 12.
How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average (GPA) ‘
GPS is derived by dividing the Total Quality point (TQP) for the semester by the Total Credit Unit (TCU) for that semester.
Eg. If in a semester, a student earned 56 quality points for 18 Credit Units, the students GPA is 56/18 = 3.11
How to Calculate Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
CGPA is derived by adding the Total Quality Points (TQP) for all semesters to date and dividing by the Total Credit Units (TCU) for all semesters to date.
Eg. If a student earns a QP of 56 for 18 CU in the first semester and earns QP of 67 for 20 CU in the second semester, His CGPA is TQP/TCU = (56 + 67) / (18 + 20) = 123/38 =3.24
Below is a detailed example of how to calculate GPA and CGPA

Pls i was told by someone that the grading system in unn is higher in the 400, and 500levels….meaning that someone in 3rd class as at 300 level can still graduate with a 2.1 if he does well in only 400 and 500 level alone…Pls looking forward for your reply
