How to Calculate GPA at the University of Botswana

Calculating GPA

The grade point average is a measure of how you are succeeding at UB. It is used in determining academic standards for good standing, financial eligibility, continued enrollment, and participation in University activities. The University reviews the academic records of all students on a regular basis.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

The GPA at UB is the ratio of the number of grade points earned at UB to the number of graded credits at UB. Only letter grades of “A,” “A-,” “B+,” “B,” “B-,” “C+,” “C,” “C-,” “D+,” “D,” and “F” are utilized in determining GPA. GPA is also referred to as QPA (quality point average). Please refer to the Undergraduate Grading Overview or the Graduate School Grading Overview for more information about grade tables.

Overall GPA

The overall GPA is the ratio of the number of grade points earned at all institutions (UB and transfer) to the number of graded credits at all institutions. The student’s Academic Advisement Report includes the overall average. Academic Advisement Reports can be accessed in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

Grade Points Earned

The number of grade points earned is the sum of the products of the credit hours associated with courses taken and the numerical equivalents of the grades earned for those courses.

Graded Credits

Graded credits are the total number of credits for which the student has earned a letter grade.
