Calculating GPA

WHAT IS G.P.A.?
GPA stands for Grade Point Average
Your GPA shows the average of your grades in all your courses.

WHY IS YOUR G.P.A. IMPORTANT?
Colleges, scholarship committees, and employers will judge your application based on criteria including your GPA. If you have a high GPA, it shows you worked hard in high school and will do the same in college or a job. If you have a low GPA, those reviewing your application may think you won’t work hard in college or in a job.

TYPES OF WAYS TO CALCULATE G.P.A.
Semester
Annual
Cumulative
Unweighted
Weighted
A-G

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Your semester GPA is your grade point average for one semester while cumulative GPA is your grade point average for all completed High School semesters.

Weighted GPAs take into account the difficulty of your coursework (AP classes) and unweighted GPAs do not.

Most colleges will consider both your weighted and unweighted GPA
Most high schools will report both to the colleges to which you are applying.

Step 2: Convert each grade to the point value using the scale to the right
Step 3: Add up all the points
Step 4: Divide the total points by the number of classes
Step 5: Now you have your G.P.A.
