How Grades are calculated

The calculation of the final average follows a system of weighting for each subject according to the number of credits assigned. The Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total value of the credit hours by the number of credit hours. Semester 1 and Semester 2 grades are averaged to obtain the final yearly grade. An example is provided below for a student in Second Form.


Subject Grade Credit HRS Value
English C 5 10.00
Math B+ 5 17.50
Science C+ 4 10.00
Social-Studies D 3 3.00
EDPM D+ 3 4.50
Religion A 3 12.00
Spanish D 3 3.00
Art D 2 2.00
Technical Drawing A 2 8.00
Life Skills A 2 8.00
Physical Education (P.E) B 1 3.00
Total 33 81

Divide the total VALUE (81.00) by the total # of credit hours (33).

Grade Point Average, GPA = 81.00/33 = 2.455 OR C
