How do I calculate my Grade Point Average (GPA)?

Your Grade Point Average (GPA) is the average of all of your grades over the course of your studies with 7 being the highest and 0 the lowest. Your academic transcript will include your GPA. 

You can convert your formal grades into a 'Grade Score' by using the following table:


Grade Score 









 PX (or P*)




Using each of your grade scores, your GPA can be calculated by using the following formula:

GPA = Sum (Grade Score x Credit Points)
            Sum (Credit Points)

Only units for which a formal grade is recorded will be used in the calculation of your GPA (i.e. grades of UP, WD, WH, DX, CNT/YL, CNT, NAS and S will not be included in the calculation). If you have attempted a unit multiple times within a course, each unit attempt will be calculated into your GPA.

Please note that if you are changing/transferring courses, the units you have studied under your original course, will not be calculated into your cumulative GPA for your new course. Units awarded as advanced standing/credit are excluded from the calculation of your GPA, even if the credit points contribute towards the completion of your course.

Further information can be found in the Measures of Academic Achievement Policy.
