How to Calculate GPA for SSC
In the grading system, the GPA of examinees is calculated based on the marks at a specific mark range or class interval. The old division system has got replaced by the GPA or grading system. There are a total of 9 subjects in the SSC exam. Among all, 8 are compulsory subjects and one optional subject. The grade points of 8 compulsory subjects are counted fully. But the grade point of optional subject is counted partially and it will only be counted if a student gets more than 2 points in this subject.
The extra point greater than 2 in the optional subject will be counted in the GPA calculation. To know how to calculate GPA for SSC, you have to look at the example below:
Suppose, a student got the grade of A+, A+, B, A, A, B, A, and C in 8 compulsory subjects and A in the optional subject. Then the grade points are 5, 5, 3, 4, 4, 3, 4, 2 and 4. So the total grade point is 5++5+3+4+4+3+4+2+2 (2 points will always be deducted from the optional subject if got more than 2)=32 and grade point average or GPA= 32 ÷ 8= 4. Calculating the GPA, the optional subject will not be counted. So a total of 8 subjects will always be counted.
In this method you can calculate your GPA that means grade point average. The average is calculated in this rule: Total points in different subjects ÷ total subjects.
