The IUB GPA Calculator simplifies the complex process of calculating your GPA. It not only provides a clear picture of your current academic standing but also helps you project future scores based on hypothetical grades. This tool is invaluable for students aiming to achieve specific academic goals.

## Formula of IUB GPA Calculator

To calculate your GPA, the total number of grade points earned is divided by the total number of credit hours attempted. Here’s a breakdown of the grade points associated with each grade:

**A+ & A**: 4.0 (highest passing grade)**A-**: 3.7**B+**: 3.3**B**: 3.0**B-**: 2.7**C+**: 2.3**C**: 2.0**C-**: 1.7**D+**: 1.3**D**: 1.0**D-**: 0.7 (lowest passing grade)**F**: 0.0 (failing grade)

Students can enter their grades and the corresponding credit hours for each class, and the calculator dynamically computes the GPA.

## Useful Conversion Tables

Grade Combination | Credits | Estimated GPA |
---|---|---|

A, A, A | 3, 3, 3 | 4.0 |

A, B+, B | 3, 3, 3 | 3.43 |

B, B, B | 3, 3, 3 | 3.0 |

A, C, D | 3, 3, 3 | 2.33 |

B+, B-, C+ | 3, 3, 3 | 2.83 |

A, A, F | 3, 3, 3 | 2.67 |

C, C, C | 3, 3, 3 | 2.0 |

D, D, F | 3, 3, 3 | 0.9 |

### Notes:

**Grade Combination**: This column lists sets of three grades as a sample semester.**Credits**: This column shows the credit hours for each of the three classes. Here, each class is assumed to be worth 3 credits.**Estimated GPA**: This column provides the calculated GPA based on the grade and credit combinations listed.

## Example of IUB GPA Calculator

Let’s walk through an example. Suppose a student has the following grades:

- History: A (3 credits)
- Mathematics: B+ (4 credits)
- Science: A- (3 credits)

Using the GPA calculator, we input these grades and credits to find the GPA, which in this case would be approximately 3.68.

## Most Common FAQs

**What is the difference between weighted and unweighted GPA?**Unweighted GPAs consider all classes on the same scale, whereas weighted GPAs account for the difficulty of the courses.

**How can repeated courses affect my GPA?**Repeated courses can replace previous grades in your GPA calculation, potentially improving your overall GPA.

**Tips for improving GPA using the calculator?**Use the calculator to understand the impact of each grade and strategize on which courses to focus more effort.
