GPA Calculation Formula

The formula used in GPA calculation is:

GPA = Total Points EarnedTotal Credits Attempted


Total points earned shows = Sum of all grade points

Total Credits Attempted = Total number of credits

How to Calculate GPA?

To calculate the GPA of a random semester, let’s have a look at the below example:

Consider a report card in which the grades and credit hours are:

Semester 1:

1. Subject: English

Grade = A
Credit Hours = 12

2. Subject: Math

Grade = B+
Credit Hours = 15

3. Subject: English

Grade = A
Credit Hours = 12


Step 1:

Calculate the total number of points earned.

Total points earned = Σ (Course Grade Point × Course Credits)
= (A × 12) + (B+ × 15) + (A × 12)

Note: To find the grade value, check the above grade chart.
A= 4.0
B+= 3.3
= (4.0 × 12) + (3.3 × 15) + (4.0 × 12)
= 48 + 49.5 + 48
= 145.5

Step 2:

Calculate the total credits attempted

Total Credits Attempted = Sum of all credit hours
Credit Hours = 12 + 15 + 12
Credit Hours = 39

Step 3:

Put the result values from step 1 and step 2 in the GPA equation.

Total Credits Attempted = Sum of all credit hours
Credit Hours = 12 + 15 + 12
Credit Hours = 39

GPA = Total Points EarnedTotal Credits Attempted

GPA = 145.539

GPA = 3.73
