Second G.P.A. Example

Class | Grade | Grade Value | Units | Grade Points |
---|---|---|---|---|

English 100 | D | 1 | 4 | 4 |

Math 135 | F | 0 | 5 | 0 |

Comm 101 | C | 2 | 3 | 6 |

Total | 12 | 10 |

G.P.A. = 10 = 0.83

12

The student is on Academic Probation because her G.P.A. is below 2.0.

Did you come up with 0.83? If you did, you are correct. The student is on academic probation because her G.P.A. is below 2.0. To bring up her G.P.A. to 2.0 or higher, this student will have to earn A's and B's. If the student gets C's, the G.P.A. won't rise above 2.0.
