Why Some NOUN Students CGPA Dropped



First, let me explain what TCC, TCE, TGPE, CGPA means…

A: (TCC)Total Credit Carried
This means the total number of credit units of courses that you have written so far till date (both the ones the students passed and the ones he/she failed if any). It is the total credit unit of all attempted exams so far.

B: (TCE) Total Credits Earned
This is the total number of credit units of courses a student passed so far.


C: (TGPE)Total Grade point earned
This is the total grade points calculated by multiplying the unit of each course by the point of the grade you scored in them.
Here’s a sample result (course code, unit of the course and the score):

CIT101 (2units) A
MTH103 (3units) B
PHY101 (2units) D
MTH101 (3units) F
GST101 (0units) A

Total credits carried = 10
Total credits earned = 7
Total grade point earned = (2×5 + 3×4 + 2×2 + 3×0 + 0x5) = (10 + 12 + 4 + 0 + 0) = 26


D: Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
This is the total grade points earned divided by the total number of credits carried. In the above example, for instance, CGPA for such candidate will be calculated as 26/10=2.60

E: CGPA Classification
First Class (4.5 to 5.0)
Second Class upper (3.5 to 4.49)
Second Class lower (2.4 to 3.49)
Third Class (1.5 to 2.39)


Curious about why your CGPA dropped??
In the first night when the result was released, The school management used your Total Credit earned (TCE) divided by your TOTAL GRADE POINT EARNED (TGPE).
It seems this was erroneously done)

Upon review: The school management resolved to use
your Total credit carried (TCC) divided by your Total grade points earned (TGPE).

What you have on your portal now is your actual CGPA .

    I tried registering for this semester as i thought I would be needing more courses to graduate but i couldn’t log in to my portal. Instead, i saw a comment at the bottom “You have graduated! Please contact the academic registry!”

    Does this means i have graduated? This was not there last month.

  24. Hello Mr Gbenga, I passed all my courses except one, but I already have the required units, do I need to to rewrite the course or should I just wait for the graduation list?

  25. Hello Mr Gbenga.
    I had one carryover in my final year, which I have registered to write. On registering the course I now saw two carry over from my 300l and four from my 400l, and does courses that appear as carryover l have written and passed them. Please what do I do? I am confused

  26. Good morning, am a student of Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution (MSC). am done with all my course work including project but my name is not on the just released graduation list. plz what may be the likely causes?

  27. Hello sir,

    I finished all my exams, seminar and project in 2018/2. When result came out in 2019/1, my seminar did not show; and one course showed I (incomplete) despite that I did all the tmas and the exam.

    I complained to my study centre and they told me to still wait, that the seminar result will show later. They also said that they don’t know anything about the incomplete result. I reported this both to the counseling and ICT unit.
    Now, the result of 2019/1 is out. When I checked my result this time, nothing has changed. I still have missing seminar and one incomplete result.

    So please what will I do for I want to graduate?

  28. I wrote a course last year and the result was F, this year I reregistered it and have taken it, but when I checked my result this week I saw D in that course and I am expecting B or A this semester. What do I do sir?

  29. Good afternoon. please what is the total credits to graduate for Peace studies and Conflict resolution. and can i register for 2 electives courses in a semester.

  30. I wrote 2 courses and result was not released, I complained they gave me F in both. last semester I re registered them and have A in both. Will the previous grade (F) affect my GP?

  31. I have 1 missed result, that is the only outstanding I have, and want to re register it. I hope I can register only 2 unit in a semester?

  32. does incomplet result count i registered a course only to realise it has no tma the result came out as incomplet please does incomplet counts.

      1. Hello mr Gbenga. I had results showing fps. Is there a way i can dispute this really as it’s impossible.
        And no one seems to be able to answer me at school.

        Please help.

  33. I salute you admin, please what is the credit unit education biology direct entry, then I was told not to do all the courses in year one , please how true is that. Thanks

  34. Hi Mr gbegene.

    You ‘re honestly doing a great job. Thanks and may God reward ur good work.
    I wanted to call you or send u a chat but I was ok seeing this reply.
    I missed 2 exams so far in my MBA program, does it mean an automatic carry over or absent? From ur narrative above, rewriting it won’t have a negative effect on the cgpa but someone told me otherwise.

      1. Good morning sir, if a student missed an exam for any reason, will it affect the student cgpa. If the student re-registered the courses and passed, will the student be allocated it’s normal go based on its score

  35. Hello admin, I have done all my courses including project, but I had carryover in my previous exam,but when I was about registering for the carry over, some new Core courses where added,is it compulsory to add the new courses, since have done all my courses except the carry overs am about to write…..thank u

  36. Hello Mr Gbenga please I want to know the duration of PGD (Business Administration) program in NOUN and the school fees. Thanks .
