Calculating Grade Points

- Grade Points = Grade Value x Units Earned

Grade | Grade Value | Units | Grade Value x Units | Grade Points |
---|---|---|---|---|

A | 4 | 3 | 4 x 3 = | 12 |

B | 3 | 4 | 3 x 4 = | 12 |

C | 2 | 2 | 2 x 2 = | 4 |

D | 1 | 5 | 1 x 5 = | 5 |

F | 0 | 3 | 0 x 3 = | 0 |

This is an example of how to calculate Grade Points. There are several grades in the left hand column with their corresponding Grade Value. For example, in the first row we have a grade of "A" that has a grade value of 4. Let's say this is a 3 unit course. Therefore, we would multiply the grade value and the units to get the grade points. In the first row, we would multiply 4 and 3 and the result is 12 for the grade points.
