Take all your college class grades (0=F, D=1, C=2, B=3, A=4) and add them up for ALL your classes. Then add up the credits for ALL the classes you have taken.

How else would one calculate a GPA?

You can also do the same for pharmacy prereq courses to determine your prereq GPA.

Unless I really forgot my algebra...if you multiply by the credit number, then divide by it...you'll just get the grade number you started with.

Try this:
Grade x Credit Hours = Quality Points (EX: A = 4 point x 4 credits = 16 quality pts)

Add up all Quality Points (will have a figure for each course you took), then divide by the Total Number of Credits. This should give you your GPA.
