Since younger people may not have a work history in most situations employers need a basis that can be used to assess the individuals competency and determination toward a project. Since there is not another employer in most instance that can be contacted to give a referral and standard as to a younger persons work-ethic, the person performance is assessed based on their abilities to perform in the academic environment. Every class that is taken has a number associated with the letter grade and by taking an average of the total classes taken by an individual the intelligence and work standards can be made based on this figure or GPA. Thus a 4.0 would indicate that the person was very diligent and attentive to their duties as the total of all classes taken would be an A. This number could technically be greater than 4.0 given superior performance and extra work or quality of work in most instance a 4.0 is extremely difficult to maintain through-out one's education. This is however how someone without a job performance history can be assessed as to their abilities in a work environment as the GPA or Grade Point Average reflects how hard and determined the person worked in education.

GPA is grade point average. Compute the grades you'll need to graduate with.

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is an average of your grade points on a numeric scale of 0-4, not a letter grade. Thus, assigning a letter grade to the GPA is not a practical or a particularly useful approach, although we recognize that it may be an interesting exercise.

Grade Point Average Calculator: As you know, grade points are assigned to letter grades; for example, typical assignment is as follows: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0. An average of grade points on all your courses is the GPA. Some schools use the +/- system with the grades and they use a modified version of assigned grade points to the grades; for example, A+ =4.3, A =4, A- =3.7, B+ =3.3, B = 3.0, B- =2.7, and so on.

Although assigning a letter grade to the GPA is not a practical exercise, you can see that a GPA of 3.6 is just under the A- letter grade.
