Each grade which you get, while it’s from the numbering system, letter-grade system, or percent system, corresponds to your high quality stage. An excellent point is nearly always on a 4.0 scale between 4 and 0, or can be a multiple of 4. The maximum grade which you are able to buy (A, 10, 5, 100 percent, etc ) will equal the maximum amount on that scale.
By way of instance, at the U.S. an A is the maximum grade you may get on your courses. Based on which college you attend at the U.S., A is equal to 4, or it’s equivalent to some multiple of 4 (e.g. 8 or 16). Once you choose a few courses, these points have been added up and divided by the entire number of credits of all of the classes you took. The amount that you get is the Grade Point Average.
Let us use an example to make things clear. We’ll assume you took 3 classes: Biology (2 credits), Mathematics (2 credits) and English (3 credits). Your grades for these classes are:
– Biology – C (C is 2.0 on the GPA scale)
– Mathematics – B (B is 3.0 on the GPA scale)
– English – A (A is 4.0 on the GPA scale)
When we multiply the levels you chose by the amount of credits for every program, we see you’ve 4 grade points for Biology, 6 to Math, and 12 to get English. In total, 22 grade factors. To compute your average GPA, we divide the amount of grade points by the entire amount of credits of these classes you chose (2+2+3=7). This is the way we find out that your GPA is 3.14.
