Example of Calculation methods of Grade Point Semester and Grade Point Average:
Table Calculation methods of Grade Point Semester and Grade point average
|Algorithm and Programming||C||2||4||8|
|Introduction to Financial Accounting||E||0||4||0|
|T O T A L||20||43|
|Number of passing credits : 18 credits|
|GPS attained : 43 / 20 = 2.15|
|GPA attained : 43 / 18 = 2.39|
