Explaining the UHAS Grading System for 2023/2024
Explaining the UHAS Grading System: At the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), we evaluate students’ academic performance rigorously using the UHAS Grading System.
This system assigns grades based on their scores in semester examinations. Here’s how the grading scale works:
UHAS Grading System
- A (Excellent): Students who score in the range of 80-100, signifying a perfect score, earn a grade point of 4.0.
- B+ (Very Good): Achieving marks between 75-79 results in a grade point of 3.5, indicating a highly commendable performance.
- B (Good): Earning marks within 70-74 translates to a grade point of 3.0, signifying a solid performance.
- C+ (Very Fair): Students who score in the range of 65-69 receive a grade point of 2.5, denoting a reasonably good performance.
- C (Fair): Scoring between 60-64 results in a grade point of 2.0, indicating a fair performance.
- D+ (Satisfactory): Those achieving marks of 55-59 are awarded a grade point of 1.5, signifying a satisfactory performance.
- D (Barely Satisfactory): Scoring within the range of 50-54 leads to a grade point of 1.0, suggesting a performance that is barely satisfactory.
- E (Unsatisfactory): A score ranging from 0-49 results in a grade of 0, indicating an unsatisfactory performance.
- X (Absent): This grade is assigned when a student is absent during an examination.

How We Calculate CGPA in Ghana
In Ghana, we calculate the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) by dividing the total number of grade points obtained by a student up to a specified time by the total number of credits for all the courses they have registered for up to that point.
