Grading System at the Accra Institute of Technology

how to be a top student

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is the preferred grading system used by AIT as an attempt to standardized measurements of different course achievements of students. This is calculated by using the grade points earned by the students over a given period; it is represented by the assigned letters ranging from A-F. To determine your point average you divide the total number of quality points by your total hours for the semester, where the highest grade point is 4.3. 

For example, if a student registered and completed 18 hours of coursework, it will have to be divided by their total accumulated quality points; let’s say the students quality points accumulated to 38 points, the grade point average will be 2.111.

The GPA points awarded to students are as below:

Class Range 
First-class 3.60 or better
Second class (upper division) 3.25 to 3.59
Second class (lower division) 2.50 to 3.24
Third class 2.00 to 2.49

And for the students with a 3.50 GPA and better, they get into the honours list,

Summa cum laude 3.90 or better
Mangna cum laude 3.75-3.89
Cum laude 3.50-374
