How to calculate your Final Grade Point Average (GPA)
The University of Ghana (UG) GPA can be calculated either using a software or manually. But first, lets look at the full scheme of classification.
Class of Degree Range of Final Grade Point Average (GPA)
Second Class (Upper)…..3.00-3.59
Second Class (Lower)……2.00-2.99
Manual Grade Point Average Calculation — University of Ghana GPA
Below grades are just examples:
Courses Credit hours Grades Grade points
Course 1 4 A 4
Course 2 3 B+ 3.3
Course 3 2 B- 2.7
Course 4 3 A- 3.7
Course 5 1 C+ 2.3
Grade Point Average (GPA) = Total Credit Hours * Total Grade Points / Total credit hours.
GPA = [(4*4)+(3*3.3)+(2*2.7)+(3*3.7)+(1*2.3)] / (4+3+2+3+1)
GPA = (16 + 9.9 + 5.4 + 11.1 + 2.3) / (13)
GPA = 44.7/13
GPA = 3.44
Therefore the Grade Point Average is 3.44 and the student is in the second class upper division.
University of Ghana Sakai Learning Management System
Sakai is an open, flexible, feature-rich platform for learning, teaching and collaboration that develops organically from within higher education to address dynamic needs of a global community. The built-in collaboration tools available in Sakai support the needs of academia and a number of different teaching and learning models.
These range from traditional courses with online components such as resource management and forum-based discussion to more advanced online approaches such as flipped classrooms and fully-online teaching.
Sakai also includes dedicated project work sites, which allow organizations and project teams to coordinate project administration, share resources, schedule activities, develop collaborative work products and track progress towards completion.
These project collaboration spaces are widely used by student groups, faculty committees, thesis committees, strategic planning teams, re-accreditation teams and others tasked with important projects beyond the classroom.
Sakai has worked with over 150 top notch universities world-wide including University of Ghana, Legon.
