To this end, the Office of the Board for Undergraduate Studies OBUS developed a discussion paper dated February which explained the case for the use of descriptors and provided a set of possible generic grade descriptors that could be adopted by the University as a whole, and used as guidelines for assessment in individual disciplines.
It was also stressed in the proposal that the grade descriptors should be used to generate assessment rubrics, assignment-specific marking schemes and marking criteria for every course in the undergraduate degree programme. This would allow lecturers to identify and assess the range of knowledge and skills demonstrated by students more effectively.
Students who have marginal failures on their transcripts, but who are otherwise progressing well, will have an opportunity to recover from those failures and attain the minimum Grade Point 2. Consequently, a student who demonstrates the minimum skills, competencies and knowledge required in any course will still pass, just as they would have previously done.
These will guide lecturers in setting and marking examinations, and will make the grading process more objective and transparent.
Lecturers are also being encouraged to provide their own, more detailed descriptors for the benefit of their students, setting out the specific skills and knowledge required in their courses.
With greater insight into the associated requirements underlying the grades and percentage scores that are awarded by lecturers, students will be better able to understand and monitor their own levels of achievement and determine where efforts to improve should be focused, when needed.
Students should also note that no changes will be made to existing marks and grades received under previous GPA regulations. They will therefore be reflected accordingly on transcripts.

R All courses shall be graded on the basis of A (distinction, indicating exceptional achievement), B (high pass, indicating more than minimal competence but less than exceptional achievement), C (pass, indicating competence), D (marginal pass), or F (fail)..
R Grade points per unit shall be: A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0. Type or paste a DOI name into the text box. Click Go. Your browser will take you to a Web page (URL) associated with that DOI name.
