    The CGPA is the cumulative Grade Point Average of all the courses you registered for in the  polytechnic.

    It can be said differently as the total grade points divided by the total units of the courses registered.

    Nigerian polytechnics make use of the following grading system in calculation of GPA and the awarding of National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND):

    Polytechnics Grading System Table:

    Mark (%)

     The Standardized Unified Classification of Diplomas is as thus:

    FINAL CGPA

    Class of Diploma

    3.50 – 4.00

    Distinction

    3.00 – 3.49

    Upper Credit

    2.50 – 2.99

    Lower Credit

    2.00 – 2.49

    Pass

    0.00 – 1.99

    Fail

    Therefore the student now graduates with CGPA of 2.55 (Lower Credit).
