## What is GPA?

GPA stands for Grade Point Average. It is a grading scale to evaluate academic performance of students in high school and colleges in United States :

The most common GPA is Standard GPA or Standard 4.0 GPA, which is calculated on a scale of 1.0 to 4.0 where 4.0 is the best and F is lowest with 1.0 point. Some countries use a 10 point scale.

Beside Standard GPA, there is Honors GPA where A is 4.5 and Advanced Placement GPA or AP where A is 5.0

A CGPA or Cumulative GPA is the average GPA across various terms and semesters.

Cumulative GPA = (Sum of individual grading points) / Sum of All Credits or Sum of all Term GPA / Number of Terms / SemesterIn addition, there is an 'Overall GPA' which includes GPA from other institutes , transfers. Cumulative GPA only considers GPA of multiple terms and semesters from same school / college and not collated from multiple other institutes

## Formula to calculate GPA

GPA Formula

GPA = Total Number of Grade Points / Total Credits

Grade Points

Total Number of Grade Points = Sum of Individual Grade Points of each course

Grade Points of a course = Credits (no of hours) * Grade Point Scored

Grade Point is 4.0 for A, 1.0 for F in non weighted grading scale Grade Point can range from 10.0 to 1.0 in other systems of grading.

Cumulative Grade Point

Cumulative Grade Point = Sum of (GPA Of Each Semester * Total Credit Hours of the Semester)/ (Total Credits of all Semesters)

## Frequently Asked Questions on GPA Calculator

Unweighed GPA uses the standard GPA scale where A is 4.0 points.

It does not take into account the complexity of the course/subject.

A weighted GPA has different grading points for Honors and Advanced Placement level and higher points for difficult subjects where A is 5 points.

It is also known as 5.0 gpa scale

A high score is good in both. However higher weighted GPA is best as it gives measure of performance with complexity and a higher grade which is weighted has more merit.

Find the grade corresponding to the unweighted GPA. for eg. 4.0 unweighted is 'A'.

In weighted , A corresponds to either 4.3 or 5.0 GPA depending on if it's honors or advanced placement

Find the grade for the weighted GPA and map it to the corresponding unweighted grading point

for eg, 3.8 corresponds to B+ which is 3.3 in the unweighted scale.

a. Standard Grading (A = 4.0)

b. Honors Grading (A = 4.5)

c. Advanced Placement Grading (A = 5)

7.0 to 10.00 is A (4.0)

5.0 to 6.9 is B

3,3 to 4.9 is C

1.0 to 3.2 is F (1.0)

Cum Laude Honor starts with Average GPA of 3.5 or higher.

It's a latin term to honor / recognize the top students.

cum laude (GPA of 3.5–3.64); (top 25%)

magna cum laude (GPA of 3.65–3.79) (top 10-15%)

summa cum laude (GPA of 3.8–4.0) (top 5%)
