Second class upper = CGPA 3.3 or 3.4 onwards?

Second class lower = CGPA 3.0 onwards till 3.2?


Do employer really care about the upper and lower? But seriously to me CGPA 3.2 is pretty good, but some of them still complain can't look for jobs because they are under lower class category.

It just a number. Any number >3000/1000 is good enough to get yourself an interview opportunity. Unless u got face/attitude problem.

Once you gain enough experience they would not care about it. I got a first class (more than 10 years ago) in my first degree. But ,no one even look at my first degree anymore. sad.gif

That is so true....it seem like they were thinking of getting like 5k a month when they come out to work instead they get owned by this diploma boys whose pay is more the him...they whine that they can face reality of work

i tot 3.0 above is upper liao... 3.5 above is 1st? tats wat i know bout US uni cos 2.0 can graduate with honors ( so i suppose is 3rd class) then 2.5-3.0 2nd lower , 3.0-3.5 2nd upper, 3.5-4.0 1st

does it matter? big companies matter lor, sadly say... it's quite unfair... cos class & CGPA do not reflect ability... but it somehow reflect discipline ...

actually it is becos malaysia still shadowing by the British system 1st, 2nd upper lower, 3rd, graduate-w/o-honor

shouldn't mis CGPA with Class, totally diff thing, when ppl ask, say CGPA _._ _ then understood, like jobstreet, they have option, when you clikc CGPA, they straight away got a format ask u to fill _. _ _ /4.00

If u came out from lousy uni aka any local private uni, no matter what u get, even 4.00 also considered su.cks.

becos u gotta be a su.cks secondary student to end up in there.

if u aim for big size company like MNC, they do value ur CGPA highly, especially if u are fresh, because that's the only indicator that they can use to evaluate u... companies like Accenture, Panasonic, Shell, Exxon... they really demand for 3.80 CGPA, and ur paid will be damn good as well la of course...

i think the cgpa is important, but not that important.

even if you obtain 3rd class, you are still able to secure a job.
