How to calculate GPA 

Record grades in subjects and hours

  • Biology (100 hours) - excellent
  • Mathematics (200 hours) - good
  • Physics (70 hours) - excellent
  • Computer science (80 hours) - satisfactory
  • Chemistry (50 hours) - good

We transfer estimates to the American system

  • Biology (100 h.) - 4
  • Mathematics (200 h.) - 3
  • Physics (70 hours) - 4
  • Computer Science (80 hours) - 2
  • Chemistry (50 hours) - 4

Multiply estimates by the number of hours

  • 100 * 4
  • 200 * 3
  • 70 * 4
  • 80 * 2
  • 50 * 4

Add up the results

1) We consider the sum of the estimates taking into account the hours 400 + 600 + 280 + 160 + 200 = 1644

2) Add up the total number of hours in all subjects

100 + 200 + 70 + 80 + 50 = 500

Divide the amount of ratings based on hours by the total number of hours

1644/500 = 3.3

GPA amounted to

3.3
