    I think ppl think that Im asking what courses no no no , :laugh: Im hispanic and never before cared about GPA as far as calculating it, I just do the class and get my grade. What Im asking is how is GPA calculated MATHEMATICALLY.
    I do apologize if it wasnt clear before.

    What does being Hispanic have to do with it.
    So multiply all your grades (4.3 for A+ 3.0 for B etc) by the units that the class is worth (ranges from about 2 to 5). Then divide by 4 times the units the class is worth.

    Example. You have 2 grades, A+ for a 3 unit class and B+ for a 4 unit class so ((4.3x3) + (3.3x4)) / (4x3 + 4x4)= somewhere around 3.7

    Sorry I am little bit confused.
    Why do you divide by (4 times the units)?

    Isn't it
    ((4.33*3) + (3.3*4)) / (4 + 3) to get around 3.7?

    am I wrong?
