How to Calculate your Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

  • All courses taken by a student in a session shall be used in the computation of his cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The final grade where a course is carried over or repeated, for whatever reasons, shall be the average of all the grades.
  • To compute the Grade Point Average (GPA) for a candidate, the total aggregate of the grade points is divided by the number of semester unit. A grade point is obtained by multiplying the point scored in each with the number of semester units assigned to the course, e.g.
COURSE SEMESTER UNIT GRADE SCORE GRADE POINT
GST 101 2 A 2X5=10
GST 103 2 B 2X4=8
GST 105 2 B 2X4=8
LBS 101 2 C 3X3=9
LBS 103 2 B 3X4=12
LBS 105 2 C 3X3=9
GPD 101 2 C 3X3=9
GPD 103 2 B 3X4=12
TOTAL 21 77

GPA = 77/21= 3.66
