Calculate the average weighted GPA of multiple courses with this Weighted Grade Calculator.
What is a Weighted Grade?
In many college, and some high schools, different classes carry a different "weight" or value of "credit". Many times, classes have a value of "credit hours". You may refer to your semester workload as taking a certain amount of credit hours. Like, "I'm taking 18 credit hours this semester." Those 18 credit hours can be made up of multiple courses that carry a set amount of hours per week of class time. For example, the total of 18 credit hours could be made up from a chemistry class worth 4 credit hours, a geography class worth 3 credit hours, a math class worth 4 credit hours, a literature class worth 3 credit hours and a shop class worth 4 credit hours. What grade you receive in each class is combined and adjusted based on the credit value of each class, to come up with a cumulative weighted grade.
How to Calculate College GPA, or High School GPA?
To calculate the total weighted GPA of a semester take the following steps:
1. Multiply the GPA and credit hours of each individual class.
2. Take the results of step 1 and add them all together.
3. Divide the total sum from step 2 by the total credit hours taken for the semester.
