American Education System

The USA system is very different from those around the world.

Where others use symbols, the US System uses numbers, where others use different terms or semesters as separate entities in your school grade percentage the US does not.

The US System uses the GPA system which carries all of your high school grade transcripts throughout your high school career or that particular year and adds them together and divides by the number of subjects to get a single number GPA.

Calculating your GPA:

GPA is out of 4 and replaces the ABCD system.

E and Worse = 0

D = 1

C = 2

B= 3

A= 4

Use the following steps

Start with your Grade 9 or equivalent year Adding up all your final subject grades according to the above scale and then divide that by the number of your grade 9 subjects

Do the same for your Gr 10 – 12 years

Add up these 4 totals from gr 9 – 12 & then divide that by 4

That will give you your GPA value

 

South African Example:

Grade 9 Grades -- A, B, B, B, C, A, B = 4+3+3+3+2+4+3= 22/7= 3.14 GPA for your grade 9 year

Assuming you get 3.14 every year = 3.14x4= 12.56/4= 3.14 total GPA

GPA = 3.14 for admissions into your Freshman year in university
