GPA Calculator High School


Coloured letter gradesYou can use this high school gpa calculator to quickly and easily calculate your semester and/or cumulative GPA, including honors and AP classes. It also works for college. Include all courses taken after grade 9. Scroll down if you want to know how to calculate it yourself.

Usually + and - grades are disregarded in high school GPA calculations with the grade being rounded to the nearest letter. For example a B- becomes a B.

Honors and College/IB classes have a higher weighting (0.5 and 1 respectively) and so you can select the type of course you're doing. Just remember for academic GPA you use unweighted grades.

If you are calculating your cumulative GPA and your school doesn't use credit values just enter the number of classes the GPA relates to.

To calculate unweighted GPA just select regular for all classes.

Real GPA

The more selective colleges will "strip" your GPA to get an accurate GPA for your academic performance. They will calculate your GPA based on the five core academic areas

  • Math
  • English or Language Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Foreign Language

So to get an acurate GPA figure for college entrance only include grades from these subjects in the calculator above.


How to Calculate GPA

Calculating your GPA is relatively easy, all you need are your grades and the credit values they are worth. Each letter grade has a points value, on the 4-point scale these are:

  • A=4
  • B=3
  • C=2
  • D=1
  • E/F=0

If you have a + grade you add 0.33 and - you subtract 0.33 so a B+ = 3.33 and an A- = 3.67. With an A+ many schools will only give the 4 points as this is the maximum on a 4 point scale, however some will add the 0.33 to give a total points value of 4.33.

A common mistake is that you divide the sum of the grade points by the sum of the credit values to get your GPA. This works if all your classes have the same credit value (or your school doesn't use credit values in which case each class counts as 1). If, however, your school does use credit values and these differ between classes it gets a little more complicated. What you need to do is multiply the grade point by the credit value and divide the sum of these by the sum of the credit values. Here's an example:

Subject Grade Credit Value
Math A- 1
English B 1.33
History A 1
French B- 0.5

To calculate your GPA you firstly multiply your grade point by the credit value and sum these.

Subject Grade Credit Value Grade value Grade x Credit Value
Math A- 1 3.67 3.67
English B 1.33 3 3.99
History A 1 4 4
French B- 0.5 2.67 1.335
Totals 3.83 12.995

Now all you do is divide the total Grade x Credit Value by the total Credit Value:

12.995/3.83 = 3.39 This is your GPA

How can i get my GPA because of my geometry?


Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, 05.19.13 @ 14:29pm

ok, im still in high school and the calculator gave me a 4.4, but i only have a 4.01 for the semester. does the calculator only calculate term grades, and if so, how do i do a semester?

The calculator just gives the result of what you put in based on the method outlined above. If you enter all your grades for the term, it will give you your term grades whereas if you enter just the semester grades this is the result you will get. Be careful though most schools don't give higher GPA marks for + or - grades, if this is the case with your school just select the base grade mising out the + or -. If you let me know your semester grades I will try to work out the reason for the difference.

How do I change my current year GPA (93.00) to get an actual GPA scale.

for example to get a number like a 3.45?

Studentspreunited: You can't do a straight swap from percentage to GPA I'm afraid. You need to know the letter grades to make it work.


Posted by Miyana on Wednesday, 03.20.13 @ 04:49am

My GPA sucks. (3.22) But thanks for having the (-) and (+) options available for us. :)

Thanks a lot! This really helps! Best calculator online by far!

I do not know if that calculation is correct but my GPA is a 4.5. I highly and think very prodominitly that that calculation is very incorrect. I think my real GPA is like a 3.8, but your software is very informative. Thank You

Studentspreunited:
Thank you for your feedback. What did you input to get a calculation of 4.5. The only way that should happen is if you include honors or college classes (bear in mind that this is a high school gpa calculator so if you're in college you should select regular.) which have an increse of 0.5 or 1 point respectively. If you can let us know what you entered so any possible problems can be investigated.


Posted by STUDENT on Saturday, 02.23.13 @ 08:47am

we have 8 classes a semester in highschool. So thats 16 classes a year. But there are only 12 spots so ad at least 2 more class entries for calcualtion. Thank you.

My son transferred and repeated sophomore year. How is that treated?

StudentsPreunited:
This depends on the institution. Some make you keep all the grades others like UC & CSU say that if you earn a D/F and the "exact same course is repeated and a C or higher is earned the original D/F grade will not be included in the GPA calculation"

StudentsPreunited:
You can use the calculator just select college for each class to calculate on a 5 point scale.


Posted by Mom on Wednesday, 01.9.13 @ 07:24am

Please ad at least 2 more class entries for calcualtion. Thank you.

Done, we've added 4 more classes, hope that sorts it for you.

i have a gpa of 2.2 after my junior year and now after mid terms i have a 3.25 in my senior year. how do i get my true gpa?

StudentsPreunited:
You can calculate this two ways. Either put the 2.2 in the first box (cumulative GPA) and the amount of classes that it is from. Then enter this years grades and calculate to get new cumulative.
The other way is to go to the Cumulative GPA Calculator page and scroll down to the second calculator. In that one you put the 2.2 and the amount of classes then the next row the 3.25 and how many classes then calculate for the result.

Cumulative GPA is calculated based on semester grades.


Posted by bo on Tuesday, 09.25.12 @ 17:27pm

how do you calculate final gpa when a student fails 1 semester but passes the other semester of a particular subject. Do we calculate using final yearly grade or by semester
