Why a student with 4.90 CGPA was best-graduating student over a student with 4.91 CGPA – Babcock explains

Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, has defended its
decision to declare Alexandria Braie, the student with a Cumulative
Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.90 as best-graduating student over
another student – Temitope Nwachukwu – who graduated with CGPA of 4.91.

Speaking on the controversial award, the Director of Marketing and
Communications of the University, Joshua Suleiman, explained that the
management of the school looks beyond academic performance in selecting
its overall best students for the year.
He told the media: We look at the leadership quality of the student
in addition to academic performance. We look at spiritual and social
activities of the students. We also look at entrepreneurship activities
of our students.
“We rate our students along those parameters to determine who gets the Vice Chancellor’s prize for the best-graduating student.”
Asked if the students were aware of these criteria, he said: “They
are aware. It has always been there. It is a laid-down parameter.”
