You 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.

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:
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:
To calculate your GPA you firstly multiply your grade point by the credit value and sum these.
Grade x Credit Value
Now all you do is divide the total Grade x Credit Value by the total Credit Value:
