Calculating my unweighted GPA is crucial to understanding where I stand academically. An unweighted GPA gives me a clear picture of my overall performance without factoring in the difficulty of my courses. It’s a straightforward calculation that can help me assess my strengths and identify areas for improvement.

## How to Calculate an Unweighted GPA: Step-by-Step Process

Here’s how I go about calculating my unweighted GPA step by step:

**1. Gather My Grades**

First, I need to collect all my final grades for the courses I’ve taken. These grades should be the letter grades (A, B, C, etc.) I received it at the end of each class.

**2. Convert Letter Grades to Grade Points**

Next, I convert each of my letter grades into grade points using the standard scale:

- A = 4.0
- B = 3.0
- C = 2.0
- D = 1.0
- F = 0.0

**3. List All My Courses and Grade Points**

I write down each course I took and the corresponding grade point for each class. For example:

- English: A (4.0)
- Math: B (3.0)
- History: A (4.0)
- Science: C (2.0)

**4. Add Up the Grade Points**

I have added all the grade points I listed in the previous step.

**5. Count the Number of Courses**

I count the total number of courses I’ve taken. This is how many grades I have in total.

**6. Divide the Total Grade Points by the Number of Courses**

I divided the total grade points I calculated by the number of courses I counted. This gives me my unweighted GPA.

## Example Calculation

**1. Gather My Grades**

Let’s say I received the following final grades:

- English: A
- Math: B
- History: A
- Science: C

**2. Convert Letter Grades to Grade Points**

Convert the letter grades to grade points:

- English: A = 4.0
- Math: B = 3.0
- History: A = 4.0
- Science: C = 2.0

**3. List All My Courses and Grade Points**

My courses and corresponding grade points are as follows:

- English: 4.0
- Math: 3.0
- History: 4.0
- Science: 2.0

**4. Add Up the Grade Points**

I add up the grade points:

= 4.0 (English) + 3.0 (Math) + 4.0 (History) + 2.0 (Science) = 13.0

**5. Count the Number of Courses**

The number of courses is 4.

**Formula:**

**Unweighted GPA =** Total Grade Points/Number of Courses

### 6. Divide the Total Grade Points by the Number of Courses

I divide the total grade points by the number of courses:

Unweighted GPA= 13.0 รท 4 = 3.25

**Result:**

My unweighted GPA is **3.25.**
