KNUST Will Not Be In A Hurry To Review Her Grading System

The Assistant Registrar (Examinations) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Mr. Daniel Kumi-Gyan has said University will not be in any haste to review her grading system upwards as the university of Ghana and University of Cape Coast have done.

The exam officer, who spoke to focus news’ Bernard Buachi in an interview on Monday, stated that the grading system of KNUST differed from that of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and University of Ghana (UG) in that, while KNUST used the Cumulative Weighted Average (CWA), while the other universities used the Grade Point Average System(GPA).

He was speaking on the upward review of the University of Ghana’s grading system and how it wiould affect the KNUST. He said, however, that the review undertaken by UG will not in any way affect degrees awarded by KNUST.

Mr. Daniel Kumi-Gyan thought that raising the grading system of the various universities is not necessarily the best tool to making students more productive. He emphatically stated that a review of the current academic standards will only be considered when deemed fit by the university authorities; adding that the current standards are alright.

He said the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was not going to import other universities ‘practices without considering its effects thoroughly.

It was earlier reported that the Registrar of the University of Ghana, Mr. Joseph Marfo told Citi News that starting next academic year, the University of Ghana will only award grade “A” to students who scored 80% and above in their exams.
