A student’s academic performance is determined at the end of each semester by computing an average of the grades she/he has received during that semester.

The number of quality points for a class is the number of credits the class is worth times the number of quality points associated with the grade you receive in the class.

 

As an example, if the following grades were received by a student in a semester:

Units Marks Quality Points Corresponding to Grade Credit hours Product
(Credit hours x Quality Points)
Accounting 100 62 3.00 25 75
Economics 100 58 2.33 25 58.25
Informatics Systems 100 75 3.67 25 91.75
Legal Framework 100 25 0 25 0
TOTAL 100 2.25

To arrive at the semester grade point average (GPA), the product (credit hours x quality points) are added and then divided by the number of credits taken.

For the above example:
GPA = (Total product for a semester) / (Total Credit Hours for a semester)
GPA = (75 + 58.25 + 91.75 + 0) / (25 + 25 + 25 + 25) = 2.25

CGPA = (Total product for all the semesters) / (Total number of credit hours taken)

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) – an average of grades from two or more semesters – equals the sum of the products of all the grades at Curtin University, Malaysia divided by the total number of credits hours taken.

 

Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA) includes:

  1. Marks for any grade/mark (including units that are failed)
  2. Marks (if any) for any unit with a result of F-IN (Fail- Incomplete / Insufficient Assessment); and
  3. Zero marks (0) for any grade/ mark unit with a result of ANN (Result Annulled due to Academic Misconduct)

 

Calculation of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) includes:

  1. Marks for any grade/mark unit credited towards the course as Automatic Credit or Designated Credit;
  2. Marks for any grade/mark unit (including units that are Failed);
  3. Marks (if any) for any unit with a result of F-IN (Fail- Incomplete / Insufficient Assessment);
  4. Zero marks (0) for any grade/ mark unit with a result of ANN (Result Annulled due to Academic Misconduct)

(Credits hours x Quality Points)
Accounting 100 62 2.67 25 66.75

TOTAL 100 216.75

To arrive at the semester grade point average (GPA), the products (credit hours x quality points) are added and then divided by the number of credits taken.

For the above example:
GPA = ( Total product for a semester) / (Total Credit Hours for a semester)
GPA = ( 66.75 + 58.25 + 91.75 + 0 ) / ( 25 + 25 + 25 + 25) = 2.17

CGPA = (Total product for all the semesters) / (Total number of credit hours taken)

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) – an average of grades from two or more semesters – equals the sum of the products of all the grades at Curtin University Malaysia divided by the total number of credits hours taken.
