Later this week, KNUST students woke up to rumours making ways on various social media platforms that KNUST will from 2018/2019 academic year start grading students with the Grade Point Average (GPA) system instead of their usual Cumulated Weighted Average (CWA) system that has being used to grade students over the years.
Even though, authorities have debunked those rumours.
The rumour shook social media to its core with several comments indicating how tensed most students are, especially when they realised that one will require 75.00 and above to obtain first class.
Here are some of the comments and tweets on social media.
pls let this start in 2020 🙏🏽😓

They will do all these and
1.the best will keep getting the best of grades
2. Average students will still be in their circle and
3. Those who fail will keep failing without any increase in failures.
JUST NOTE THAT A CHANGE IN GRADING GOES WITH A COMFORMING SYSTEM.

The authorities should come out and clear the air concerning this grading system they have brought on board whether it applies to the continuing students.

If this was the grading system during my time then half of my class wouldn't have graduated.
