How to calculate your CGPA

Recently, some students were wondering what exactly is the procedure for calculating your CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average).

When calculating your CGPA, only credits and marks awarded in courses concluded with an examination (not just course credit) are included in this calculation.

Suppose your average from one give year is 2.00, it is calculated as follows:

Considering, that
A = 1
B = 1.5
C = 2
D = 2.5
E = 3
F = 4

and supposing that in a given year, the following marks have been acquired

Course 1 - mark A - supposing this particular course is awarded with 8 credits
Course 2 - mark C - 9 credits
Course 3 - mark A - 6 credits
Course 4 - mark A - 18 credits
Course 5 - mark F - 16 credits

i.e. total number of expected credits is 57 (all of the above just added up)

To get the CGPA, each mark is multiplied by the number of credits awarded for each given course, i.e.
Course 1:         A (1) x 8  =   8
Course 2:         C (2) x 9  = 18
Course 3:         A (1) x 6  =   6
Course 4:         A (1) x 18 = 18
Course 5:         F (4) x 16 = 64

That summed up equals to 114, divided with expected no. of credits 57 equals to 2, which is the above mentioned CGPA.

Please note that even courses, which are concluded with an examination, you have registered for them, but have not attempted to take an examination in a given year, are for the purpose of CGPA considered as failed, i.e. mark F(4).
