GPA Calculator

This GPA calculator computes your GPA and creates a report based on your course credits and grade. Both numerical and letter grades are accepted.

This calculator computes a student’s grade point average (GPA). If you’re in high school and taking AP/IB classes, you’ll need to adjust the “Settings” to input the grades in percentages or on a different scale. It’s possible to incorporate previous GPA or group courses by semester.

GPA Planning Calculator

You may use the calculator to estimate the minimum GPA needed in future courses to achieve the target GPA or maintain the desired GPA.

This calculator uses letter grades and their numerical counterparts

There are several grading systems in use across the world and in schools. One of the most often used measures of academic accomplishment is a student’s grade point average (GPA). Course credit is considered when calculating a student’s overall grade average.

It is possible to enter letters and numbers into this calculator. The list below shows that the letter grades correspond to the number values.

• F = 0 grade points
• D- = 0.7 grade points
• D = 1 grade point
• D+ = 1.3 grade points
• C- = 1.7 grade points
• C = 2 grade points
• C+ = 2.3 grade points
• B- = 2.7 grade points
• B = 3 grade points
• B+ = 3.3 grade points
• A- = 3.7 grade points
• A = 4 grade points
• A+ = 4.3 grade points

P (pass), NP (not pass), I (incomplete), and W (withdrawal) have no impact.

Most students in American schools are graded according to the system outlined above. However, F is sometimes substituted for E. Some grading systems contain grades such as an A+ or a B-, and some don’t.

Some students may place greater value on specific courses than others. The calculator can consider this if a class has a "weighting" of a certain number of credits. It makes their grade in a course more significant in determining their total grade point average.

Examples

Mathematics 4 A+ 4 × 4.3 = 17.2
Physics 2 B 2 × 3 = 6
English 3 A 3 × 4 = 12
Total 9 NA 35.2
GPA 35.2 / 9 = 3.91
Biology 4 3 4 × 3 = 12
Chemistry 3 2 3 × 2 = 6
Chemistry Lab 2 4 2 × 4 = 8
Total 9 NA 26
GPA 26 / 9 = 2.89

Tactics that work for one student may not be effective for another, so there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Some tips below can help raise your GPA. These suggestions may not be reliable ways to increase your grade point average. But in general, they can help you develop good habits and positively impact your studies by raising your GPA.

Regular Class Attendance

Classes are usually paid for either by the students or their parents. Sometimes students may decide a course is useless to their education or is a waste of time. Dropping a class entails a financial loss and a loss of a chance to get an education.

But even just attending a class can provide important information. Suppose a student doesn't get information about a change in an exam or a course because they didn't attend class. In this case, the student's grade point average might suffer.

Teachers periodically give lectures, which will be available online. But not attending a course may result in a lack of additional information. Interacting with the professor and other students can help a student gain a deeper understanding of the course. Live interaction will help the student better grasp certain concepts. Answering seemingly insignificant questions that students ask in class and the following explanations can significantly impact test scores.

Students that actively participate help the instructor connect names, faces, and grades, especially in small classes. Professors who find their students interested and attentive are likelier to show understanding in critical situations like missing deadlines.

Active participation will engage the student better in the course than reading online notes or a textbook, and a teacher can clarify unclear points immediately on the spot. This can affect a student's grade and grade point average.

Planning

Every student absorbs information differently. Some prefer to work methodically for long periods, while others prefer to rest frequently. There is no one-size-fits-all method of learning. Each person's learning style and schedule determine their approach to learning.

Learning and record keeping accompany each other. A student may not have enough time to absorb all the information presented by the instructor during a lecture, so it is better to take notes during lectures. Studying notes will allow you to return to the notes later and refresh your knowledge.

Time management is essential for planning. There are only 24 hours a day, and we can't effectively use all of them. Yes, studying is crucial. But taking more courses or classes than a person can handle can hurt their grades and grade point average.

The volume of classes in some subjects can seem daunting. But planning how and when to work on each discipline or course can reduce stress and increase productivity. Once all the classes have been chosen, budgeting and scheduling classes can help you estimate the amount of work and time involved.

Regularly reviewing syllabus work is another essential time-management item. The final exam covers a lot of information in a course. Studying information methodically and regularly is often more effective than memorizing all the information in a week or a few days before an exam.
