China GPA Calculation Example

  1. Determine the last two full years of study.
  2. Convert percentages to grades based on scale on transcript, if not available use 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 scale on the transcript, split scale to allow for +’s if applicable.
  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.

Iran GPA Calculation Example

  1. 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.
  2. Convert marks to grades based on scale on transcript, if not available use 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. Each degree will have their own calculation done and be combined for the final GPA.
  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.
  7. 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.
