Can someone please explain to me what a GPA is (I know it's stands for grade point average) and how they come to the result.

Thanks

It means the average of all your grade averages.

so every end of year grade (point score) is averaged?

maths - 89
English - 76
Science - 91
economics - 84
Phys ed - 80

GPA = 84

yes?

In university the GPA system is a little different.

The school from which I graduated uses a 4 point system.

A - 4
B - 3
C - 2
D - 1
F - 0

so a semester of 2 B's, 2 A's and a C would yield a GPA of 3.0
