Just because you can calculate something with elementary mathematics doesn't mean (hah, pun) it belongs to basic arithmetic. I could calculate an FFT (well discrete anyway) using elementary mathematics, but it is still considered a signal processing calculation. An average is a part of the field of statistics as MiesVanDerMom said, though it may be trivial to calculate.Dr.TobiasFünke said:for what?? GPA calculation is solely arithmetic.
baylormed said:I used the tables given on AMCAS help section to do it. My school gives +'s, but not -'s, for example, so for every B+ I used a 3.3 value instead of a 3.5 (the value assigned in my schoo). I had already calculated my BCMP and my Total, however, when I was processed, I was off by .04 in both. So I would just wait until you are verified to get it, otherwise you might end up submitting the wrong gpa in secondaries.
Mine went up from what I had, so I'm not complaining, but wait until you are verified first to check it.
