If you are wondering how your GPA has been calculated, then we’ll show you a through step by step on how to calculate your GPA.

The calculation of your GPA will depend on how your school reports the grades on your current transcript. You should speak to someone from your current school or check your school’s website for guidance. Nevertheless, calculating your GPA follows a basic formula which is to divide the total points earned in a program by the total number of credits attempted.

1. The first thing you need to do is to convert each of your final grades into the right decimal (please check your school’s GPA scale for reference).

2. Add all the converted decimal grades.

3. Divide the sum from Step 2 by the total number of your classes/units/subjects and you have your unweighted GPA.
