**International GPA Calculation** Examples

**China** GPA Calculation Example

- Determine the last two full years of study.
- Convert percentages to grades based on scale on transcript, if not available use University of Manitoba International Equivalency Criteria.
- 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. - 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.
- 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

- Determine the last two full years of study.
- 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%.
- Convert the percentages to grades using the scale on the transcript, split scale to allow for +’s if applicable.
- 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. - 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.
- 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.

**Iran** GPA Calculation Example

- Determine the last two full years of study. This applicant holds a Master’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree, we will use the Master’s as one year and the last year of the Bachelor’s as year two.
- Convert marks to grades based on scale on transcript, if not available use University of Manitoba International Equivalency Criteria.
- 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. - Each degree will have their own calculation done and be combined for the final GPA.
- Add the weighted grade points and divide by the total number of credits or courses.
- Multiply each GPA by 50% and then add the result together. This will be the student’s GPA for their last two years of study.
