Grade point average (GPA) is a commonly used indicator of an individual's academic achievement in school, Collges and Universtities. It is the average of the grades attained in each course, taking course credit into consideration. Grading systems vary in different countries, or even schools. This calculators use the following letter grades and their typical corresponding numerical equivalents based on grade points.
Most schools, colleges, and universities in all over the World use a grading system based on this criteria that you seeing 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-. Others may attribute more weight to certain courses, and thus whatever grade is attained in the course will have a larger effect on overall GPA. The calculator can account for this based on the number of credits attributed to a course, where credit is the "weighting" of the course, as shown in the example below.
|Math||4||A+||4 x 4.3 = 17.2|
|Physics||2||B||2 x 3 = 6|
|English||3||A||3 x 4 = 12|
|GPA||35.2 / 9 = 3.91|
