# GPA Calculation

GPA and CGPA Calculation Puzzle
Suppose:

Semester 1 Result is:

 Course Title Credit Hours Total Marks Marks Obtained Grade Points Value Programming Fundamentals 4 100 66 2.6 Discrete Mathematics 3 100 80 4.0 Introduction to Computing 3 100 70 3.0 English 3 100 64 2.4 Islamiyat 3 100 75 3.5

Formula for Calculating GPA is: Sum of (Credit Hour * Grade Point Value) / Total Credit Hour in
Current Semester.

For e.g in the above table:

4 * 2.6 = 10.4
3 * 4.0 = 12
3 * 3 = 9
3 * 2.4 = 7.2
3 * 3.5 = 10.5
------------------
49.1

GPA: 49.1 / 16 = 3.07

Semester 2 Result:

 Course Title Credit Hours Total Marks Marks Obtained Grade Points Value Data Structures 3 100 73 3.3 C++ 4 100 60 2.0 Electronics 3 100 65 2.5 Calculus 3 100 77 3.7 Pak Studies 3 100 85 4.0

By Calculating GPA as in the above example we finally get:

GPA: 48.5 / 16 = 3.03

Now Calculating Cumulative GPA or CGPA:

Formula for Calculating CGPA is: Sum of (Credit Hour * Grade Point Value) / Total Credit Hour in
Total Semesters.

Note: In CGPA we have Total Credit Hours in Total Semesters while in GPA we have Total Credit Hours only in that Current Semester.

CGPA (Cumulative Grade Points Average) is:   49.1 + 48.5 / 16 + 16 = 97.6 / 32 = 3.05
