Published On February 21, 2014 | By ED | News

We’ve had a few questions from students about their GPA and what it means in terms of marks, so here’s a summary:

### 9 Responses to GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA): What it means (in numerical terms); details

Not sure who got GPA in the middle for example GPA= 4.67 numerically aggregate marks= 68 what is his final grade for his graduation? C or P

2. Helen says:

What if your GPA is 6.56 or thereabouts? Does that mean you get rounded up to a 7?

3. Luke says:

The numbers stated here are for your individual subjects. If you want to work out your Grade Point Average, it is calculated by adding up the cumulative GPA scores for each subject, and dividing the sum by the number of subjects that contributed to that score. For example, if a student received 1 High Distinction, 1 Distinction, 2 Credits and 4 Passes their GPA would be 7 + 6 + 10 (2×5) +16 (4×4) = 39 / 8 = 4.875…

Your current GPA can also be accessed through MyUNE. Go to the MyEnrol tab, then select the Course Details link in the Enrolment Details box on the left hand side of the screen. Click the Course Code link alongside the Progression section, and a breakdown of the units completed and remaining will be given, as well as the current GPA of the results completed to date.

I hope this helps everyone out!

Does a NI count towards GPA?

Hi Ashlea,

5. Tammy says:

Hi, can someone help me? I’m just trying to figure out what my GPA will be if I fail one of my units this tri. I’m currently taking 2 units and my GPA is at 4.9, can anyone help me work it out?

• mmataraz says:

Hi Tammy,

Your GPA is calculated by adding up the cumulative GPA scores for each unit and then dividing this number by the amount of units you have completed. What you will need to do is use the units that are currently contributed to your GPA of 4.9 and then add your current two units as hypotheticals to work out your GPA. Please note that a fail grade is equal to 0 on the GPA scale.

I hope this makes sense. If you need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to get back in touch with us. You’re welcome to call us on (02) 6773 4430 and I am happy to explain the process over the phone.

If you have a GPA of say 6.8, does that get rounded up to 7 so you would graduate with Honours 1, or would it be rounded down to 6 so you get honours 2?

Thanks

I think the basic premise of your posting is not correct. You are seeking to predict a GPA? Not possible. A GPA is based on grades as any website explains. I used Google and found all sorts of sites with more than adequate ways to calculate GPA but none to predict. Find out more: https://calculator-online.net/cgpa-calculator/
