What is a GPA calculator? How does it work and what does it do?

GPA can be summarized as an overview of a student’s performance in university. Student’s usually struggle with maintaining their GPA as it is presented as a total.

What does GPA stand for? What does it represent?

GPA stands for Grade Point Average.  It is a number that shows how well you’ve performed in your semester. It is based on the marks and grades you’ve scored on your courses. An average is taken of the courses and an overall GPA is calculated which shows the performance of the student in the semester.

Over the course of their university, the GPA from each semester is totaled which then accumulates into the CGPA which stands for Cumulative Grade Point Average. Students are awarded with their degree on the basis of their CGPA. Universities usually have a minimum CGPA that students must have in order to graduate and receive their degree.

It can be difficult to keep track of and calculate your GPA. Most students struggle to and are unable to calculate their GPA as the process is quite difficult. A student’s GPA is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to a 4.0. To get the example student's GPA, the total grade points are divided by the total credit hours attempted.

What is considered a ‘good’ GPA?

A student’s GPA can range from 0.0 to 4.0. A 3.0 average is usually equivalent to a B grade for most universities unless they have a different scoring method. A B grade is considered so a 3.0 GPA means that you’ve been performing very well in your university. Anything above 3.5 is considered exceptional and is a rare sight to see.

How to use the GPA Calculator UK?

Using the GPA is quite easy, simple and straightforward as that is the whole point. If the process of using the UK GPA calculator was just as complicated as calculating GPA using the normal method then the GPA calculator wouldn’t be very useful.

Step 1: Select the format for your grade.

The first and foremost step is to select the format you’re looking to get your GPA in. You can choose from letters which are grades or percentage. If you do not have the grade report or haven’t received it from the university then you can either ask your university to send it to you or just enter a rough estimate. The passing range is from 60% to a 100%. Anything below 60% is considered as an F or fail.

The letters range from A+ which the highest achievable grade to an F, which is the lowest. Rate reviews typically extend from 100% to 60%. Rates falling underneath 59% are typically considered as F.

Step 2: Enter your present GPA (optional)
