HOW TO CALCULATE CGPA IN NIGERIAN HIGHER INSTITUTIONS
Result Data Analysis
Definition of Terms
Carry Over:  When one fails a course, it leads to carry over. It means the student will have to sit for that course in the following session. In most schools when you fail a course, it will affect your GPA for that semester. When you sit for the course in the following session, it will add to your workload.

Missing Script:  a missing script is a situation whereby your exam script for a particular subject was not found. It is expected that you sit for the course again. In some school such result is considered as a fresh exam and it will not have a direct effect on the semester. But some school will take it as carry over. However make sure you don’t have a carry over or a missing script because it will slow you pace in academics acceleration.

Letter Grades: They are alphabet from A to F representing grade obtained in a particular subject.
