University Grading System - The DHU system of grading is expressed in a 100-point based grade and letter grade. Their relationship with each other and 5-point grade points is listed in the following table.
Grade Points (GPS)
A - Excellent work
0.1X - 5
B - Better than average
C – Average
D - Below average
F – Failing
Grade Point Average (GPA) – DHU uses a five-point grading scale in calculating GPA. Pluses and minuses do not affect the GPA calculation. In other words, a B- is worth the same as a B+.
Eligible credits calculated in GPA include all the credits including failed course(s), but excluding Pass/Fail Course(s).
GPA = Total Points of all coursesTotal number of eligible credits
Total Points of a course = credits of the course x GPS of the course
Grade Points (GPS) of a course= 0.1*Grade - 5
