## GPA Calculator

**How to find out GPA Calculator?**

Calculating your high school GPA is relatively simple. Your college GPA can be calculated in exactly the same way if only each class had the same credit for hours. But when you take classes with varying numbers of credit hours, classes with more credit hours weigh more in your *GPA calculator*. Here we will tell you how to do it in college, when you have to add the number of credit hours that each class is worth.

Steps:

1. Mentally (or on paper) replaces your grades with a number. On a rating scale of 4 points (where a 4.0 is the highest rating), an A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, and F = 0.

2. Learn the number of credit hours with which each of the qualifications was achieved.

For this example, let’s say you took 4 classes this semester. Biology (3 hours, B), Calculus (4 hours, A), History (4 hours, A), and Spanish (3 hours, C).

3. Calculate your time points.

Count the number of credit hours you took. In this example they are: 3 + 4 + 3 + 3 = 13 hours.

Multiply your hours by the number of what your rating scale equals to A. On the 4-point scale, we are using for the example, A = 4. Then 13 (hours) x 4 (maximum rating) = 52. This number is your time points.

4. Calculate your total credit points.

For each grade you receive, take the number you assigned in step 1 and multiply it by the number of credit hours that class is worth. This will give you a number of credit points for each of the classes you took. Add up all these numbers. This is the result of your credit points.

In our example, the Biology score = 3, and the hours = 3. 3×3 = 9, so the Biology credit points would be 9. The Calculation score = 4 and the hours = 4. 4×4 = 16, so Calculation credit points are 16. History = 4 and hours = 3. 4×3 = 12, so History credit points are 12. Spanish = 2, and hours = 3. 2×3 = 6, so the points of Spanish credit is 6. Add all and you have a total of 43 credit points.

5. Divide your total credit points (step 4) by your time points (step 3). In this example, 43 (credit points) / 52 (hour points) = 0.8269. If this was an exam, this would be your score: 0.8269 which equals 82.69%. To calculate your GPA, however, there is still one more step.

6. Take the number you got in step 5, and multiply it by the number on your scale in A. On the four-point scale, A = 4, so using the example, 0.8269 x 4 = 3.3. So, you have a GPA of 3.3 (in this example). Congratulations, you have already calculated your GPA from the university.

7. By last. Say, for example, that you have a transcript. In this transcript is a GPA you already have. Now you want to know what your GPA would be if you get an A in a two-hour summer class.

Turn your GPA into a percentage (the type you got in step 5) by dividing by the number on your rating scale that is an A. 3.3 / 4 = 0.8269.

Since credit points / hour points = percentage, you can know your credit points. Percentage x Points of hours = Credit points.

To update your GPA, find the credit points of your new classes (in this example 4×3 = 8) and upload them to your number of points.

These calculations give you a new number of credit points (in this example, 51) and hour points (in this example, 60), with which you can calculate your new GPA (starting from step 5), which in this example Example is 3.4.

*Tips*: If the result does not look accurate, you may have been wrong in your calculations or you may have forgotten that classes with more credit hours have a greater effect on your GPA. Getting an A in your 5-hour physics credit class will help you more than getting an A in your 3-credit history history class. So study accordingly.

As soon as you enter your final grades, the school will calculate your GPA. This is the easiest way to use *GPA Calculator*, because through this mathematical process you could confuse yourself or make mistakes, especially if you do it mentally.

If you have credit hours in which you did not receive a rating (for example, through Advanced Placement or Approved / Disapproved), remember to ignore them in your calculations.

If you want to update your GPA (instead of calculating it again) by factoring only your most recent ratings, you can NOT just average the two GPA. First you must have the number of credit points and credit hours with which you calculated the first GPA. .
