Cumulative Gross Point Average (CGPA) calculations have become standard at Salem University. To get a good grade and make sure you’re on track to get the grade you want, you should always calculate your GP. Getting into Salem University is a big deal. If you get in, you can feel good about yourself because you’ve already overcome a big obstacle, but now the real fight for a good CGPA begins.

At this point, you start to go to class, do your homework, and study for your test. Students who are paying attention start to learn how to figure out their CGPA early on so they can try to get on upper credit. Most students at Salem University want to figure out their CGPA based on their grades, but they don’t know how.

In this post, I’ll show you how to figure out your grade point average at Salem University. This is just as important as anything else you do to make sure you get good grades. If you know how to figure out your GP, you can figure out where you stand each semester and how close you are to reaching your goal for being in an educational institution. So, in this article, we’ll explain how to figure out your GPA at Salem University.

So, here is the range of each letter grade before the benchmark at Salem University.

**The Old Grading System Table**

Percentage Score | Letter Grade | Points | Rating/Remark |

70 – 100 | A | 5 | Excellent |

60 – 69 | B | 4 | Very Good |

50 – 59 | C | 3 | Good |

45 – 49 | D | 2 | Fair |

*40 – 44 | E | 1 | Pass |

0 – 30 | F | 0 | Fail |

The pass score/mark has been extended in accordance with the new NBTE standard “E.” The letter “E” is considered to be “Fail”.

Here’s the new system: a student’s work at the university is currently rated in the letters below, with each letter carrying an equal number of points, as follows:

**Table of the New Scoring System**

**Table of the New Scoring System**

Percentage Scores | Letter Grades | Points | Rating/Remark |

70 – 100 | A | 5 | Excellent |

60 – 69 | B | 4 | Very Good |

50 – 59 | C | 3 | Good |

*45 – 49 | D | 2 | Pass |

0 – 44 | F | 0 | Fail |

In Salem University, the least acceptable pass score is 45% (percent). As a result, a ‘D’ will be the minimum passing mark for all courses, including electives and General Studies. All examples below, however, will be based on the most recent update (benchmark).

**Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)**

The above grading method is used to calculate a student’s grade point average at the conclusion of each semester. Assume that in his or her first semester, the student offers the following courses:

Course code | Title of Course | Credit Unit |

GSP 100 | The Use of English I | 2 |

GSP 111 | Use of Library | 2 |

GSP 105 | Natural Science I | 2 |

GSP 201 | Social Sciences I | 2 |

COS 101 | Introduction to Computer Science | 2 |

STA 131 | Inference I | 2 |

MTH 221 | Real Analysis I | 3 |

Total Credit Units | 15 |

Now let’s Assume your grades are C, A, D, A, D, B, and C in each of the courses, which is equal to 3, 5, 2, 5, 2, 4, and accordingly. Using the new grading scale, each course’s total point will be calculated as follows:

Total Point of a Course = credit unit of the course multiplied by the grade point matching to the letter grade of the course in question, i.e. Total Point of a Course = credit unit of the course multiplied by the grade point relating to the letter grade of the course in question Grade point for the course, then repeat for all subsequent courses in the same manner:

**Table for Calculating CGPA for First Semester at ****Salem**** University**

**Table for Calculating CGPA for First Semester at**

**Salem**

**University**

Course Code | Credit Unit | Letter Grade | Points Grade | Credit x Points | Total Points |

GSP 100 | 2 | C | 3 | 2 x 3 | 6 |

GSP 111 | 2 | A | 5 | 2 x 5 | 10 |

GSP 105 | 2 | D | 2 | 2 x 2 | 4 |

GSP 201 | 2 | A | 5 | 2 x 5 | 10 |

COS 101 | 2 | D | 2 | 2 x 2 | 4 |

STA 131 | 2 | B | 4 | 2 x 4 | 8 |

MTH 221 | 3 | C | 3 | 3 x 3 | 9 |

Total Points | 51 |

The entire point, 51, is then divided by the total number of credit units (15) to produce the grade point average. Noting that there is no space for approximation in the computation of GPA, the following formula is used: First Semester GPA = Total points/Total Credit Units = 51/15 = 3.4.

**Calculation of Your CGPA for Second Semester**** ****at ****Salem**** University**

**Calculation of Your CGPA for Second Semester**

**at**

**Salem**

**University**Assume that in the second semester, the student takes the following courses:

Course code | Title of Course | Credit Unit |

CHH 112 | Basic Principles of Physical Chemistry | 2 |

GSP 208 | Humanities II | 2 |

GSP 106 | Natural Science II | 2 |

GSP 202 | Social Sciences II | 2 |

BIO 152 | General Biology II | 3 |

PHY 196 | Practical Physical III | 2 |

GLG 142 | Earth’s History | 3 |

Total Credit Units | 16 |

And the student receives the following grades in the courses: A, A, C, F, D, D, and B. The second semester GPA of the student will then be displayed in the table below.

Course Code | Credit Unit | Letter Grade | Points Grade | Credit x Points | Total Points |

CHH 112 | 2 | A | 5 | 2 x 5 | 10 |

GSP 208 | 2 | A | 5 | 2 x 5 | 10 |

GSP 106 | 2 | C | 3 | 2 x 3 | 6 |

GSP 202 | 2 | F | 0 | 2 x 0 | 0 |

BIO 152 | 3 | D | 2 | 3 x 2 | 6 |

PHY 196 | 2 | D | 2 | 2 x 2 | 4 |

GLG 142 | 3 | B | 4 | 3 x 4 | 12 |

Total Points | 48 |

GPA for the second semester = The Total points/Total Credit Courses = 48/16 = 3.0 = 3.0

This method of figuring out GP is the same as what other universities use, so it can be used at other schools as well.
