Abstract: This paper presents how to develop software for grading system in Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 programming language. The paper uses Microsoft Access as Back-End and Graphical User Interface (GUI) design in Visual Basic as Front-End. The Front-End serve as a platform to select the branch, year, semester and finally the grades obtained in each paper. The details of thus selected conditions viz., course code, course title, credits of each paper, and total credit are brought to the Front-End by connecting to a Microsoft Access database. Then the Grade Point Average (GPA) or Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated accordingly.

Keywords: Visual Basic, Grade Processing System, GPA/CGPA, Front end, Back end, Graphical User Interface (GUI), Database, Debug.
