How do you calculate a GPA?

For every ‘A’ you receive, you earn a 4.0. For every ‘B’ you earn 3.0; ‘C’ you earn 2.0; ‘D’ you earn 1.0; and ‘F’ you earn 0. Add these points and divide by the number of classes you have. That is your GPA. (This applies to traditional 4.0 schools. Some schools in the United States might have different GPA scoring systems out of 12 points of 100 points). Remember to calculate your academic GPA, so courses like P.E. don’t count. Keep in mind that Cal States and UC’s count only 10th-11th grades.
