# CGPA calculator

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:

1. Determine the number of courses you have taken during the period for which you want to calculate your CGPA.
2. 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.
3. 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).
4. Add up all the grade points earned for all the courses taken during the period.
5. Add up the credit hours for all the courses taken during the period.
6. 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.
