Calculation of Grades in a Module

Categories: Grades MPT PT Promotion Physical Therapy

  1. Not all courses are graded but the pass mark for M.P.T. courses that are graded is 60%.
  2. The weighted average that must be obtained at each promotion point is 70%. The calculation of the weighted mean average considers the number of credit units for each course. Below is an example showing the calculation of the weighted average for Module I. It should be noted that a student may get 60% on more than one course and still meet the standard for promotion.
