## How to Calculate GPA in Pakistan?

In every semester, your workload depends on the courses that you have opted for the semester. Moreover, there is a model to get the marks. In schools, we used to have midterm exams, final exams, class quizzes. Also, the teacher used to give us feedback and grades on our class participation. Likewise, every university sets a criterion to calculate your GPA for the semester.

In some universities, the following criterion is used to calculate the marks/percentage of the student. Later on, every student is given a grade according to its marks/percentage. In the end, the average grade score calculates the GPA of the student. So, the students have to focus on many other activities rather than the university exams.

B+ | 3.33 | 81-85% |

B | 3.0 | 77-80% |

B- | 2.67 | 72-76% |

C+ | 2.33 | 68-71% |

Course D | B- | 2.67 |

Course E | C | 2 |

Course F | B | 3 |

**GPA = 3.06**

## How to Calculate CGPA in Pakistan?

CPGA is calculated after every semester because your performance changes every semester. Therefore, it is the average of your GPAs.

For Example

Semesters | GPA | CGPA |

Semester 1 | 3.06 | 3.06 |

Semester 2 | 3.00 | 3.03 |

Semester 3 | 3.75 | 3.27 |

Semester 4 | 3.50 | 3.33 |

Semester 5 | 2.89 | 3.24 |

Semester 6 | 2.75 | 3.16 |

Semester 7 | 3.40 | 3.19 |

Semester 8 | 3.18 | 3.19 |

The average of 3.06 stays 3.06, so the CGPA does not change in the first semester. However, later on, the second semester GPA was 3, and the average of 3.06 and 3 turns out to be 3.03. Furthermore, all the CGPAs are calculated.

So, the CGPA of graduation degree would be **3.19**.
