Postby novajones001 » Thu Jan 17, 2019 12:59 am

hey everyone,
i have just completed my high-school, i will start my college soon. I was wondering if i could find out about gpa calculation so that i could score well in college. It would be very helpful if someone could teach me how am i supposed to calculate gpa for any a number of subjects and also how to convert the calculated gpa into percentage.

GPA is "grade point average." It is figured only on the transcript, and it is never converted to percentages.

On your transcript, the final grades you earned (A, B, C, D) are given numeric values, or grade points: A=4; B=3; C=2; D=1. So if there were six subjects for the year, there would be six final grades; to figure GPA, each grade would be converted to the appropriate point, and then you find the average (basic arithmetic: add the points, divide by the number, in this case 6, because you were adding up 6 things). If you earned A's in all those subjects, then of course your GPA would be 4.0. (4+4+4+4+4+4=24; 24/6=4).

If there were four classes on your transcript one year, then you'd convert them from the letter grade to the grade point; then you'd add those grade points and divide by 4.
