ADP lasts a total of four years and upon completion, will see you conferred with a Bachelor's Degree. Students can take as few as two subjects, and as many as six, with the only prerequisite being that they fulfill the required credit hours to advance. To calculate your credit hours, you multiply the number of subjects taken (a) by the credits allocated for that subject (b). Then, multiply that answer with the number of semesters you took the subject for (c). a x b x c = number of credits you have. To obtain an undergraduate degree, you will need around 110 to 140 credits. As mentioned earlier, the more subjects you take, the more credits you accumulate, the faster you graduate. It’s really that simple! But taking too many subjects in one go can drain you. So be wise in your choice.
The grading system is similar to what you’ll find in Malaysian universities, the CGPA. An A+ would give you a GPA of 4.00 for a particular subject, a B+ would give you a 3.33, and so on. The total of all your GPAs from your chosen subjects will be averaged and thus, you get your final CGPA which can range from 0.0 to 4.0.
