International GPA Calculation Examples


China GPA Example | India GPA Example


Below are explanations and examples for GPA calculations for degrees obtained in China and in India.


China GPA Calculation Example

1. Determine the last two full years of study.
2. Convert percentages to grades based on University of Manitoba International Equivalency Criteria
3. If there are credits or units (do not use hours) available, determine how many credits/units were received for each grade.
NB: This step should only be used if all the courses in the last two full years of study have credits. If they do not, weight each course equally and determine the number of courses that were assigned each grade.
4. Multiply the total credit for each grade (or the total number of courses for each grade) by the grade point to arrive at the weighted grade point.
5. Add the weighted grade points and divide by the total number of credits or courses. This will be the student’s GPA for their last two years of study.

India GPA Calculation Example

  1. Determine the last two full years of study.
  2. Convert marks to percentages. For example, if the maximum marks available for a course/exam is 150 and the student received 70 marks, divide the 70 by 150 and then multiply by 100 to arrive at their percentage, which would be 47%.
  3. Convert the percentages to grades using the Univ. of Manitoba International Equivalency Criteria (click link for further information).
  4. If there are credits or units (do not use hours) available, determine how many credits/units were received for each grade.
    NB: This step should only be used if all the courses in the last two full years of study have credits. If they do not, weight each course equally and determine the number of courses that were assigned each grade.
  5. Multiply the total credit for each grade (or the total number of courses for each grade) by the grade point to arrive at the weighted grade point.
  6. Add the weighted grade points and divide by the total number of credits or courses. This will be the student’s GPA for their last two years of study.
