How To Calculate NOUN TMA Scores

TMA means Tutor Marked Assignment. For your registered course, you are entitled to 3TMA, of which you must submit before the end of the semester exam. After submitting, it will be graded over 30.
Let’s take CIT101 as a course case study.
Let’s say,
TMA 1 you scored 10.0
TMA 2 you scored 9.00
TMA 3 you scored 10.0
Your TMA score for CIT101 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 Result

It’s straightforward!!!!
You should note that all NOUN questions don’t Have the same number of questions, some have `35, 70, 100, 120, 150, The courses with 35 are most of the time MTH courses. 100 and 120 questions are 2unit courses
150 questions are 3 unit courses
Anyway, let’s get started…
For Example: (CIT101)
After the CIT101 exam, you checked your score, and you scored 95 out of 120 questions. And in your TMA for CIT101, 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 question, which simply meansEXAM SCORE divided by NUMBER OF EXAM QUESTION multiplied by 70.
Whatever your result is 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 final result add 56 exams scores + 29 TMA – Result is 85
Which means, CIT102 = A.
Also, note, you’ll use the same method to calculate if your exam question is 100 or 150.
But in the case of 35 questions, all you need to do is multiply whatever you score by 2.
That is, if you score 20/35, it will be 20 x 2, which is equal to 40, meaning that you score 40/70. But sometimes, it will have been programmed in such a way the calculation would have been done. You’ll know if it is.
You’ll see your score over 70.
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

PLEASE NOTE:- In case of 70 questions in Exam, Multiply whatever you score in EXAM + TMA. That is your final grade.
