New degree grades only get the first 15% of grades to get a new rating

The City University held a meeting of the Academic Affairs Council today. It is understood that the school will revise the existing bachelor's degree grading system and abolish the "honor grading" that has been implemented for many years, and change it to only a three-level "Distinction" system and apply to 2020/ Undergraduates enrolled in the 21st school year, the current students will not be affected, that is, the fastest implementation in 2024. Under the new system, instead of referring to the divided CGPA levels, it is commonly known as "pull curve" and is rated according to the preset percentage of candidates for each level.

It is understood that under the new system, the percentage of graduates who can be rated has been further narrowed. The original full-level results of the same subject discussed earlier ranked the first 18%, and the rating was reduced to the first 15% before being rated, while the remaining 85% were not rated. According to the 2018/19 school year graduates’ achievement data, the graduates’ CGPA must obtain a score of about 3.46 or above, which is equivalent to First Class honours or higher second class honours. .

Wu Baocheng, a student counseling consultant of Alumni Association, believes that the "honor level" in the eight universities is effective, but at present, only the City University is changing the system. The new system is different from the ordinary people's understanding of degree grading and describes a lot of changes. (Profile picture)

Xueyou Club: Waiting for new graduates to join the workplace

Wu Baocheng, a student counseling consultant of Alumni Association, believes that the “honor rating” of the eight universities is effective, but at present, only the City University has changed its system, which describes a lot of changes. It is different from the ordinary people’s understanding of the degree classification.

For example, if graduates in the past were classified as "qualified" (taking City University as an example, that is, CGPA 1.99 to 1.77), they would not be awarded the honorary grade. "However, many students are graded", most of them won the honorary grade B. For students of grades C and C, if these two grades are not rated, it will cause the outside world to question, "The graduates with no rating in the new system are equal to poor ability?"

Secondly, he believes that employers may not spend time deliberately. Understand the new rating system of CityU. If graduates are not rated, they may not be interviewed. He believes that if the outside world needs time to adapt, the graduates of the school who are not rated will join the workplace. After a period of time, they will show their work strength before the job market will slowly be certified.

As for whether the new system will prevent City University graduates from pursuing their master's degree, Wu estimates that the impact is relatively small, because college admissions may not necessarily only look at the honor grade, and will also examine the subjects and performance details of undergraduate graduates. It needs to be detailed." And the first round of re-selection of the university's joint admissions program will end tomorrow, Wu believes that this year's candidates need to pay attention to the revision of the city's university grades, but it is estimated that the new system will affect the city due to the impact of admission scores and the subjects offered by the institutions. Large admissions may not have much impact.
