For the 5.00 scale and 10.00 scale, similar calculations can be performed using the respective grade points assigned to each grade.

**How to use this calculator?**

Using the GPA calculator is very simple and easy.

- Enter the number of courses or subjects.
- For each course, input the grade received and the credit hours (or units) associated with it.
- Click on the calculate button to get your GPA.

**What is GPA?**

GPA can be calculated on various scales including the 4.00, 5.00, and 10.00 scales. Here is a brief explanation of each.

**4.00 Scale **

This is the most common GPA scale used in the United States and Canada. It ranges from 0.00 to 4.00, with 4.00 being the highest achievable GPA, representing an A grade in all courses.

**5.00 Scale**

This scale is often used in countries like India, Russia, and some European nations. It ranges from 0.00 to 5.00, with 5.00 representing the highest GPA achievable.

**10.00 Scale **

This scale is used in some countries like Poland, Argentina, and Serbia. It ranges from 0.00 to 10.00, with 10.00 being the highest GPA achievable.

**General Formula for GPA Calculation**

The general formula to calculate GPA is

GPA = (Σ (Grade Points * Credit Hours)) / Total Credit Hours

Here

Σ denotes the sum of

Grade Points are assigned based on the grading scale (e.g. 4.00 scale: A = 4.00 and B = 3.00, etc.)

Credit Hours represent the weight or value of each course

**How to find GPA?**

Let us consider a hypothetical scenario where a student has taken three courses with the following grades and credit hours.

Course 1: Grade A (4.00 scale), Credit Hours: 3

Course 2: Grade B (5.00 scale), Credit Hours: 4

Course 3: Grade C (10.00 scale), Credit Hours: 2

**Calculations**

**For the 4.00 scale**

Grade A = 4.00 (Grade Points) * 3 (Credit Hours) = 12.00

Grade B = 3.00 * 4 = 12.00

Grade C = 2.00 * 2 = 4.00

Now

Total Grade Points = 12.00 + 12.00 + 4.00 = 28.00

Total Credit Hours = 3 + 4 + 2 = 9

GPA = 28.00 / 9 = 3.11 (rounded to two decimal places)
