Below are the most helpful ways to calculate GPA in Kenya

Students are graded on each assignment, project, and exam. The semester’s average grade is calculated by adding these grades and dividing them by the number of work units. The result of these calculations is their grade point average. Use the following steps to calculate your GPA.

  • Step 1: Find out how much credit you earned in each course you’ve already finished by looking at the grades you earned: A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1.
  • Step 2: Multiply the grade value of each course by the credit value of the course to determine your grade point average for the semester. If a course is worth three credits, and you get a B in it, your total grade point average for that course would be 9.
  • Step 3: To calculate your overall grade points, simply add up your individual grade points.
  • Step 4: Then, to get your GPA score, divide the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits taken.
