A GPA for scholarship purposes is normally calculated using:
A numeric value is given to each grade and an average is calculated by using the points values of the papers you have taken.
For each paper where the points are included in the total of 240 points (or greater), you need to convert your grade to a numeric value:
Fail grades, including DNS (did not sit) and DNC (did not complete) etc, still retain their points but have a zero numeric value.
For each paper included in the total of 240 points (or greater) multiply the points value by the numeric (grade) value, and then divide this sum by the total sum of points. Make sure you report your GPA to the nearest three decimal places (eg 7.500).
