What is the minimum mark for “A” grade? Is grade point value different for “A” and ‘A+’?
The range for grade A and A+ are 70-84 and 85-100 respectively.(However, mark ranges for a particular course unit may be decided by the examiners of the respective course units, based on the marks distribution)
The grade point value for both A and A+ grades is 4.0.
How do we calculate GPA?

Example: A student who has completed one course unit with 2 credits, three course units each of 3 credits and two course units each of 1 credit with grades A, C, B, D, C+ and A+ respectively would have the GPA of 2.48 as calculated below.

(2*4.0)+(3*2.0)+(3*3.0)+(3*1.0)+(1*2.3)+(1*4.0(2+3+3+3+1+1)
= (32.3)/13
= 2.4846
Grade Point Average = 2.48
