Fedena offers the following two methods to calculate CGPA:

  • By GPA Average

  • By Credit Hours


By GPA Average

The formula used is:


By Credit Hours

The formula used is:


Example

Let’s assume that credit points are assigned as follows.

A = 4

A- = 3.7

B+ = 3.3

B = 3

B- = 2.7

C+ = 2.3

C = 2

C- = 1.7

D+ = 1.3

D = 1

D- = .7

F = 0


Calculation of Shaun’s GPA for Batch 1 will be as follows.

Subject (Batch

Subjects)

Credit Hours (Assigned

to each subject)

Grade (Secured

by student for

subject)

Grade Points (Credit points ×

Credit hours)

English

A

3 × 4 = 12

Arabic

C

3 × 2 = 6

3

F

3 × 0 = 0

Total Credit Hours = 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 = 10

Total Grade Points = 12 + 3 + 6 + 0 = 21


Shaun’s GPA for Batch 1 = 21/10 = 2.10


Calculation of Shaun’s GPA for Batch 2 will be as follows.

Total Credit Hours = 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 = 10

Total Grade Points = 12 + 3 + 9 + 12 = 36


Shaun’s GPA for Batch 2 = 36/10 = 3.60


Calculating Shaun’s CGPA by GPA Average:


= (2.10 + 3.60)/2 = 2.85


Calculating Shaun’s CGPA by Credit Hours:



Where:

  • Grade Point is Credit Hours assigned to the Subject × Credit Points corresponding to the grade secured by the student

  • Total Grade Point is the Sum of (Grade Points of all subjects of batches under a course)

  • Total Credit Hours is the Sum of (Credit hours of all subjects of batches under a course)



Shaun’s CGPA = (21 + 36) / (10 + 10) = 2.85
