NOUN E-Exam & TMA Scores Calculation 2022 (NOUN Grading System): NOUN E-EXAMS – HOW TO CALCULATE NATIONAL OPEN UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA (NOUN) E-EXAM AND TMA SCORES, NOUN GRADING SYSTEM.
Majority of NOUN students especially new students want to know how the National Open University Of Nigeria (NOUN) exam grading system is calculated when it comes to E-Exams and TMA Scores.
In this article, you will learn how to calculate NOUN E-exam and TMA Scores.
NOUN E-Exam is Graded over 70
NOUN TMA is Graded over 30
How To Calculate NOUN TMA Scores
TMA means Tutor Marked Assignment, for your registered courses, you are entitled to 3 TMAs, which you must submit before the end of the semester exam. After submission, it will be graded over 30.
Let’s take GST101 as a course case study.
TMA 1 you scored 10.0
TMA 2 you scored 9.00
TMA 3 you scored 10.0
Your TMA scores for GST101 is 29 over 30 when you add all together
Now the question is, how do I calculate my E-exam score plus my TMA score?
How To Calculate NOUN E-Exam Score
You should note that all NOUN Exams questions don’t have the same number of questions, some have 70, 100, 120, e.t.c
For Example: (GST101)
If after the GST101 exam, you checked your score, and you scored 80 out of 100 questions. And in your TMA for GST101, as I said earlier, you scored 29/30.
To calculate your total score over 100, use this formula:
X/Y x 70/1
That is, let X = what you score in the exam, and Y = the total number of exam questions, which simply means, EXAM SCORE divided by NUMBER OF EXAM QUESTION multiplied by 70.
Whatever you get from the above calculation, you’ll now add it to your TMA.
Let’s do the math:
Exam score (X) = 80
Total number of exam question (Y) = 100
Therefore, it will be 80/100 x 70
The result is 56
Your exam score is 56
(N.B.: your TMA score is 29).
Now, to get your final grade add 56 exams scores + 29 TMA – Result is 85
This means, GST101 = A.
Also, note, you’ll use the same method to calculate if your exam question is 120 or 150.
But, in the case of 70 questions, all you need to do is to add whatever you score in the exam to your TMA scores.
That is, if scored 40/70 in exam and 29 in TMA
Now, to get your final grade add 40+29 = 69
Your final grade is 69 which = B
NOUN adopts the general grading system, find it below:
0-39. — F
40-44 — E
45-49 — D
50-59 — C
60-69 — B
70-100 – A

HOW TO CALCULATE NOUN CGPA
To get your overall score over 100,
Assuming in ECN101 you scored 40/70 in the exam, 30/30 in TMA
You’ll be adding exam score + test score= 40 + 30= 70
So, your total score for the course ECN101 would = 70/100. Which is an ‘A’.*
Before we venture into NOUN GPA calculation; Note that:
39 downwards= F.
Now, let us assume, I did 11 courses and this was how my score went in the 11 courses after calculating scores, with their units in front of them. Let’s assume these were my courses, grades & units;
1) ECN101 – B. 2unit course
2) TFC116- B. 2unit course
3) ENT121 – C. 3unit course
4) BAT128- C. 2unit course
5) GMB142 – A. 2unit course
6) BRF136- A. 3unit course
7) KFC108- A. 2unit course
8) GEJ158 – D. 3unit course
9) OBJ114 – D. 2unit course
10) IBB131 – E. 2unit course
11) FFK104- F. 2unit course
Now, we have 11 courses, with their grades & units in front of them. Let’s understand the grades;
A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1, F=0.
How to Calculate NOUN GPA
Now, let’s start with the first course ECN101 for NOUN GPA calculation.
I scored B in ECN101 above. Since B= 4.
I’ll multiply 4 by the unit of the course, which is a 2unit course.
So; 4 x 2unit= 8. So for ECN101 = 8.
Next is LAW116, I scored B as well. Since it is a 2unit course, I’ll calculate 4 x 2units= 8. So, TFC116 = 8.
Next is ENT121, it was a C. C = 3, which is a 3 unit course. So, calculation will be; 3 x 3units= 9. ENT121= 9.
Next is BAM128, I scored C, which is a 2unit course. The calculation will be; 3 x 2units= 6. BAT128= 6.
Next is BUS142, I scored A. A=5, which is a 2unit course. So; 5 x 2units= 10. GMB142= 10.
Next is BIO136, I scored A, which is a 3unit course. So; 5 x 3units= 15. BRF136= 15.
Next is CHM108, I scored A, which is 2unit course. So: 5 x 2units= 10. KFC108 = 10.
Next is GEO158, which is a 3unit course, I scored D, D = 2. So; 2 x 3units= 6. GEJ158= 6.
Next is CHM114, which is a 2units course, I scored D. So; 2 x 2units= 4. OBJ114= 4.
Next is ECO131, which is a 2units course, I scored E. E = 1. So; 1 x 2units= 2. IBB131= 2.
Next is AGR104, which is a 2unit course, I scored F. F = 0. So; 0 x 2units= 0. FFK104=0.
Now, having done all the 11 courses calculation, we will have to finalized it by adding all the course calculations together. So that will give us;
8 + 8 + 9 + 6 + 10 + 15 + 10 + 6 + 4 + 2 + 0 = 78.
Now, add the total units of all the course together;
2 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 25.
So, divide the added course calculation by total units.
Which is; 78 ÷ 25 = 3.1.
So, there you have it, your NOUN GPA is 3.1. That is a 2nd class lower.
