We know normal result grading end at F but if you see other weird alphabets like X, Y, Z, I in your results or an Audi and you don’t know what it means, then this is absolutely what you need to read.
Understand all these properly and help save yourself from not graduating.
Grade Interpretation Grade Point
X Fail 0
Z Disqualification 0

Each Grade is assigned an equivalent grade point as indicated above.
The number of (grade) points earned by a student, for each course completed, is computed as the product of the number of credits for the course and the grade point equivalent letter of the grade obtained in that course, this constitutes the Grade Point (GP).
The student’s cumulative grade point average is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points obtained, up to any specified time, by the total number for credits of all courses for which the student has registered up to that time. This is the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
The Final Grade Point Average (FGPA) is the CGPA for all courses under consideration calculated up to the end of a student’s academic programme.
Grades A to D constitute Pass grades, whilst Grades E, F, X., Z constitute Failure grades.
A grade Y (for Continuing) shall be awarded at the end of a semester to any student who is taking a course which continues into the next semester.
A grade AUDI shall be awarded for attendance at lectures but where no examination is taken, or where an examination is taken but no mark can be returned, for good reasons. The Grade AUDI is not taken into account in the calculation of the FGPA.
A grade I (for Incomplete) shall be awarded to a student who is unable to complete a course for reasons adjudged by the Board of Examiners as unsatisfactory. Such a student shall be expected to complete the course the very next time the course is available.
A grade Z denotes Disqualification from an examination as a result of an examination malpractice or offense and shall be awarded whenever it is established that a candidate had attempted to gain an unfair advantage in an examination, be it in a Principal subject or an Ancillary or any other paper.
A candidate awarded a grade Z may be debarred from taking a University Examination for a stated period, or indefinitely, or may be expelled from the University altogether. A grade Z may be awarded only by the Board of Examiners.
