HOW TO CALCULATE GPA (Grade Point Average) & CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average)

  • Step 1: Find out GP value for each subject of a semester from the GP Table
  • Step 2: Multiply each GP value by 3 i.e. the number of Credit Hours
  • Step 3: Add all the values from Step 2
  • Step 4: Now divide the Total from Step 3 with the Total Number of Credit Hours (i.e. 12 for 4 courses & 15 for 5 courses) and here is your GPA for one semester
  • To calculate CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average), simply repeat Step 1 to Step 4 and then take average.
  • NOTE: GP is for individual course, GPA is calculated for one semester while CGPA is calculated for multiple semesters





    GPA (for 4 courses) =
    (GP of Course A x 3) + (GP of Course B x 3) + (GP of Course C x 3) + (GP of Course D x 3) /                                                         12 i.e. Total Credit Hours                                                    




    GPA (for 5 courses) =
    (GP of Course A x 3) + (GP of Course B x 3) + (GP of Course C x 3) + (GP of Course D x 3)+ (GP of Course E x 3) /                                                                           15 i.e. Total Credit Hours
