FPTB Aligns With NBTE Grading System

The Federal Polytechnic Bauchi is set to implement the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE’s) grading system for polytechnics known as Standardized Unified Grading System, effective from first semester 2017/2018 academic session.

The new grading system which is operational in virtually all polytechnics across the country affects students who are currently in ND1, Diploma 1 and HND 1, implying that ND2, Diploma2 and HND2 are not affected by this development.

Details of the Standardized Unified Grading System are as follows:

  • 75% & above. =A.
  • 70%–74% =AB
  • 65%–69% =B
  • 60%–64% =BC
  • 55%–59% =C
  • 50%–54% =CD
  • 45%–49% =D
  • 40%–44% =E
  • Below 40. =F

And the Standardized Unified Classification of Diplomas is as thus:

  • 3.50 & above =Distinction
  • 3.00–3.49. =Upper Credit
  • 2.50–2.99. =Lower Credit
  • 2.00–2.49. =Pass

Speaking during a sensitisation lecture organised for academic staff of the Polytechnic, the Rector Arc Sanusi Waziri Gumau said there was the need for staff to brest up to the new reality and comply with the directive of the NBTE to avoid penalties.

The Rector used the occasion to charge students, especially those in ND1, Diploma1 and HND1 to redouble effort and work hard in order to be successful in their studies and prayed to God to see them through in the forthcoming examinations.
