## What is GPA

GPA stands for Grade Point Average. It is a standard way of measuring academic achievement at the National Open University. Basically, it goes as follows: Each noun course is given a certain number of “units” or “credits“, depending on the content of the course.

GPA assumes a grading scale of A, B, C, D, F. Each grade is assigned a number of grade points. An A grade receives 4 points, a B=3, a C=2, a D=1, and an F=0. The process is the same whether you are working on secondary or college grades.

If you take a 3 unit course and receive an A grade, you receive 3 units times 4 points (for the A), which gives a total of 12 Grade points for the course.

Let’s say you also take a 6 unit course (common in final year Project, for example) and receive a C grade. That’s 6 units times 2 points for 12 points. So for your two courses, you have accumulated 22 Grade points for the 9 units.
