HOW TO CALCULATE CGPA AND GPA IN NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES

If you are a regular visitor to this blog, you must have come across terms such as GPA and CGPA. These two terms are used for grading and degree classification in Nigerian universities. They show how far you've performed in a semester or throughout the duration of the particular course you are studying. The CGPA stands for cumulative grade point average while the GPA refers to grade point average. The GPA is over a semester while the CGPA covers multiple semesters.
