    People smarter than me have said that GPAs are more than averages of the grades; they also involve the credit hours for each course. Number of credit hours for a course times the grade value. <a href="http://www.cas.unt.edu/advising/gpa-calculations&quot; rel="nofollow">this site</a>, for example, defines Grade Points as the &quot;number of credit hours for a course times the grade value.&quot; So the

    The formula for calculating GPA is pretty simple:<br /><br />1. Add up the total points for all of the grades (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0);<br /><br />2. Then divide the result by the total number of grades that were received.<br /><br />The answer will be the grade point average.<br /><br />As a pretend example, let&#39;s say a person takes five classes and gets grades for all of them: one A,

    Andrew—maybe it was Improvisational Learning, i.e., making it up as you go along. He&#39;d fit right in. One F and 8 D&#39;s. A powerhouse.<br /><br />I couldn&#39;t remember how to figure GPA either, Kokie. But I did use <a href="http://www.back2college.com/gpa.htm&quot; rel="nofollow">this online calculator</a> to input Perry&#39;s grades, and it looks like his overall GPA is 2.18—not quite a C+.

    I don&#39;t remember how to calculate a GPA<br />(as I go an D- in Calculus 232)<br />but it looks to me as if he was a B- or C+<br /><br />Cumulewdive Average student &amp; &#39;pom graduating <br />at Texas A&amp;M that would make him a graduate with honors say in the top 97 %<br /><br /> heck, he probably played football and dated a cheerleader GO AGGIES !

    Two As: Improv. of Learning and World Mil. Systems. If that&#39;s improvement of learning, he didn&#39;t deserve the A. <br /><br />Only one F, though: Organic Chemistry.<br /><br />Did he release that himself, or did somebody out him?<br /><br />One thing to note, though, is that any criticism of the guy&#39;s poor academic record will be attacked as snobbery.
