OBE Report Card

Students can access your own Outcome Based Education (OBE) report card through the link given below. This report card will summarize your Program Outcomes (PO) attainment based on semester average and cumulative average which are weighted by the credit hour of each course. The results are presented in spider web chart and you can refer to the briefing slides to interpret the analysis result. You can also meet your academic advisor (AA) to get advice on the improvement strategies.

Login steps:

  • Go to the link: OBE Report Card
  • To login, use the office 365 email account: ummail-username@siswa365.um.edu.my. The password is the same as your ummail.
    * If you are unable to sign in to your office 365 account, you can request helpdesk to fix the problem.
  • Once you have signed in, you need to give permission to the web app to access the SharePoint files (one time only).
  • If your browser settings block 3rd party cookies, you may need to reconfirm sign in multiple times.

Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative GPA (CGPA) Calculation

The academic performance of a student in a particular semester is indicated by the GPA and CGPA. The GPA is determined by dividing the total grade points obtained by the total credit obtained taken in a particular semester. The CGPA is determined by dividing the total grade point obtained by the total credits taken from the first semester until the current semester. Where a student repeats a course, the grade to be considered in the calculation of the CGPA and to be given credit shall be the best grade achieved by him.

Online GPA and CPGA calculator can be found here.
