Each

of us once has to consider his average mark to assess future opportunities.

When

- Does your

you improve your grades? - How to

work with GPA to understand your assessment?

Our

article will help you get answers to such questions. We want to share an

important experience with you so that you can evaluate your chances of getting

to a great university.

#### GPA calculation scheme

Here

is a way to calculate your score: **(grades*credits)/credits=gpa.**

**The way to find out your GPA**

When our parents were still in school, everyone could calculate their GPA using simple mathematical skills like an essay writer. Earlier, letters from A to F meant marks from 4 to 0. Accordingly, times have changed, and now it is almost impossible to calculate the average score on your own.

Nowadays,

to calculate the GPA, even a calculator and the Internet are not enough for

you. To begin with, there are not one, but four whole counting methods.

However, it is not the most difficult point. The fact is that specialists have

created a system in which your score is averaged depending on the state in

which you or the university are located.

We will explain to you the principle of counting different types of GPA. Therefore, you can count on our information to find out your score. Follow all the steps and soon you will be able to evaluate your educational opportunities in the best colleges.

**Simple GPA**

Remember

the stories of your grandparents about how they covered several kilometers on

the way to school? These stories are as old as this rating system. Thanks to a

concise and understandable concept, it is called a simple GPA. The system

consists of numbers from 0 to 4 and letters from F to A, which correspond to

each other. Depending on your class, you select the correct number and letter.

Next, you need to calculate the arithmetic mean by adding together grades for

all subjects and dividing the amount by the number of subjects.

**A little bit more complicated GPA**

This system is more complex, as now + or – can be added to each letter. Thus, schools make life even more difficult for you, and you need to spend more time calculating. If until this moment you evaluated the prestige of a class exclusively by letter, then pay attention to this scale:

As you can see on this scale, the highest score is 4.0. You can also say

that the rating for a class with a + sign is higher than for a normal one.

However, some schools use this version of the scale:

Speaking

of this system, the best score is 4.33.

**Weighted GPA**

This system complicates the assessment system by taking into account the number of lenders at each of the courses. Thus, the following diagram shows that the number of credits in your course directly affects the GPA. Consequently, a class with 4 credits will be considered the most sought after.

Imagine

you have a similar schedule:

Using

that information, we may understand that:

- Your

future in sports is unlikely to be outstanding, and most likely you will go to

science. - The

number of all credits is 13. - The

ratings on the scale that are in brackets are unweighted.

Here major steps on how to calculate the weighted GPA:

- Multiply

the number of credits per course by the grade you received. - Find the

sum of these numbers. - You need

to divide the number 45 by the number of your credits. - Receive

and sign. The weighted score for this system is 3.46.

By

the way, if you used the simple GPA type for counting, you would receive 3.29

in the result. That is the difference.

**Weight up the GPA in Different**

Classes

Classes

If

you want to add the AP, Honors, or IB classes, be prepared to do a good job.

You still have to work on the numbers, but most likely you are smart enough and

tuned for a successful outcome.

However, make sure that you comply with all the requirements. For some students, special rules are established according to which they need to pass 4 or 5 points in the advanced exam. Only then will students be able to enter the grade into their GPA.

An

example of possible scale:

Now take a look at the rating table, which does not include credits, but

AP classes.

Now we will calculate your weighted GPA score based on AP classes using

the Simple GPA system.

However, using Simple GPA system for last data we will receive this

result:

## Weight up the GPA using

Credit Hours

To top it all, we will take the same rating from the example above and

also use credit hours for AP classes.

After you read this article, do not rush to conclusions. You will most likely be annoyed by the complexity of the calculations.

However, focus on your goal: do you want to study at a good college and

become a specialist in some field? Do not worry if your score is not the

highest, because there are other factors affecting the GPA. You need to decide

what kind of education you want to receive, and then such details will cease to

be irritable.
