## How Students’ CGPAs Are Calculated

Consider the below assumption

The academic details of a student whose name is ‘XYZ’ is outlined below,

Course Offered — Course Unit — Score — Grade Point

Total course units — 46

CGPA = (course unit x grade point) + (course unit x grade point) + (course unit + grade point) ……… / total course unit

Using the results above,

CGPA = (3×4) + (3×3) + (3×4) + (4×4)+ (3×3) + (2×4) + (3×2) + (2×4) + (2×4) + (2×4) +(4×3) + (3×4) + (3×4) + (3×4) + (3×4) + (3×4) / 46

= 12+9+12+16+9+8+6+8+8+8+12+12+12+12+12+12 / 46

= 168 /46

= 3.65

CGPA = 3.65 (Out of 4.00)
