GPA Calculator

When you’re enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme, your GPA is easily one of the most important numbers to keep an eye on. Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. It is a standard way of measuring academic achievement in the US.
In the same way that your professors and instructors give you a grade to evaluate your progress or success in their course, your Grade Point Average is a score used to evaluate your success during the entirety of your degree programme.
Your average GPA is a number that shows what you typically scored in your classes throughout the semester, term, and year. Your GPA scores can go up and down throughout your time at the university and will change according to how much you improve your overall grades (or, in some cases, how much you fell behind).

How GradeHub calculates GPA

Shown in the example is a student who has taken three modules. Each module been assigned a letter grade and weighted using "credits".
  • Neural Networks has an "A" grade for a 20 credit module.
  • Database Systems has an "B" grade for a 10 credit module.
  • Quantum Computing has not been graded and is a 10 credit module.
Once you have completed a module, your work will be marked using a letter grade, usually A, B, C, D or F. More details of the letter grades for each grading system are listed below. These letter are each assigned a numeric value such that an average can be taken. In the GPA 4.0 system, an A grade receives 4 points, a B=3, a C=2, a D=1, and an F=0.
Credits are uses to balance the relative amount of effort required by your modules. Each module is assigned a certain number of "credits", depending on the content of the course. These credits are multiplied by your letter grades.
To calculator the final GPA take the average of the weighted grade for each module and divide by the total number of credits.
In this example: ((4 x 20) + (3 * 10)) / 30 = 3.7

Supported GPA Grading Systems

Most colleges, and universities in the United States use a grading system based on the letters above, though E is sometimes used instead of F. Grading systems do differ however based on what constitutes an A or B, and some do not include grades such as an A+ or a B-.
We are adding new grading systems all the time and aim to have a grading system bespoke to each College and University.

Translating GPA to Other Grading Systems

If your grading system is A-F, with a 4 point scale, you may be able to calculate your grade point average. However, most systems outside the U.S. do not use that scale. Even some systems that do use a similar scale have different meanings for grades (for example, in the U.S., "A" grades are not rare, but in some systems they are almost never given), so the GPA is not representative of the same thing that it is in this country. It is for that reason that colleges here usually have people specially trained in the evaluation of credentials from other countries.
In the future, GradeHub is going to add a tool for approximating your score in other systems from your GPA.
