CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) is a measure of a student’s academic performance over a period of time, typically a semester or an academic year. CGPA is calculated by averaging the grade points earned in all the courses taken by the student during that period.

**Here’s how to calculate your CGPA:**

- Determine the number of courses you have taken during the period for which you want to calculate your CGPA.
- Assign each course a grade point based on the grading system used by your school. For example, if your school uses a 4.0 grading scale, an A is worth 4.0 points, a B is worth 3.0 points, a C is worth 2.0 points, and so on.
- Calculate your grade points earned in each course by multiplying the grade point value of each grade by the credit hours for that course. For example, if you earned an A (4.0 points) in a course worth 3 credit hours, you would have earned 12 grade points for that course (4.0 x 3).
- Add up all the grade points earned for all the courses taken during the period.
- Add up the credit hours for all the courses taken during the period.
- Divide the total grade points earned by the total credit hours to get your CGPA.

### For example, if you took 4 courses during a semester and earned the following grades and credit hours:

**Course 1:** A (4.0 points) – 3 credit hours Course 2: B+ (3.3 points) – 4 credit hours Course 3: A- (3.7 points) – 2 credit hours Course 4: B (3.0 points) – 3 credit hours

Your total grade points earned would be 4.0 x 3 + 3.3 x 4 + 3.7 x 2 + 3.0 x 3 = 41.1 Your total credit hours would be 3 + 4 + 2 + 3 = 12

Therefore, your CGPA would be 41.1 / 12 = 3.43 on a 4.0 scale.

Note that grading systems and credit hour systems can vary between schools, so make sure you understand your school’s grading system and credit hour system before calculating your CGPA.
