Now, let's do another example. This student got very sick during the semester and missed many of his classes. As a result, he had a hard time keeping up. In this table are his final grades and corresponding units. Using this information figure out his G.P.A. Have a piece of paper and a pencil ready. Write the corresponding Grade Values and Grade Points per class on a separate piece of paper. Remember each grade has a certain value: A equals 4, B equals 3, C equals 2, D equals 1, F equals 0. You calculate the grade points by using the following formula: units earned multiplied by grade value equals grade points. The formula to calculate a G.P.A. is: Grade Points divided by number of units attempted equals G.P.A.
