## How to calculate your GPA manually

It is essential you know how to calculate your GPA manually and I’d show you right away.

Step 1: You should know the grade points assigned to every grade you achieved.

Step 2: You should know the credits hours for every specific course you took.

Consider the table below for a Mechanical Engineering student:

Subject or Course name | Credit Hours | Letter Grade | Grade Points |
---|---|---|---|

Subject / Course 1 | 4 | A | 4 |

Subject / Course 2 | 5 | A- | 3.70 |

Subject / Course 3 | 3 | B+ | 3.30 |

Subject / Course 4 | 3 | B | 3.00 |

Subject / Course 5 | 2 | B- | 2.70 |

Subject / Course 6 | 1 | C+ | 2.3 |

GPA=?

### The calculation

To calculate the GPA of the student with the result above. You should follow the steps below:

Grade Point Average (GPA) formula = Total Credit Hours * Total Grade Points

Total Credit Hours

Total Credit Hours * Total grade points = 4 * A (4) +5 * A- (3.70) + 3 * B+ (3.30) + 3 * B (3.00) + 2 * B- (2.70) + 1 * C+(2.3)

= 16 + 18.5 + 9.9 +9 +5.4 +2.3

=61.1 grade points

Can the students GPA be 61.1? Absolutely not.

We need to calculate the total credit hours according to the GPA formula above.

Total credit hours = 4 +5 +3+ 3 +2 +1 = 18 hours.

Therefore, the students GPA (Grade point Average) = 61.1 / 18

= 3.39 ( to 2 decimal places)

## Note

As you can see from the table and results, an A in a 4-unit course is stronger than an A in a 1-unit course.
