You would have received your first semester results. For those who did not achieve a GPA of above 3.0 or failed any paper, you would have received a conditional pass.
What does it mean?
If you cannot achieve a CGPA of above 3.0 in the second semester, you would be kicked out from the postgraduate programme. The aim of this article is to show you on how to achieve a CGPA of above 3.0 in the second semester.
Here is an example of a poor result;
If the student proceeds to second semester without repeating his first semester paper, even if he/she gets all A’s in second semester with a GPA of 4.0 (a near impossible task), the CGPA would still be below 3.0.
So he/she should repeat the papers that he/she failed in first semester; i.e. FK6163 and FK6183.
If he/she repeats only FK6163 and he/she got an A for it, his/her new CGPA would look like this;
If he/she repeats both papers and passes both of them comfortably, his/her new CGPA would surely be above 3.0.
