The Full form of GPA
The Full Form of GPA is Grade Point Average. This is a form of educational grading system devised by educational research centers in most countries. Grading in education requires the application of standardized measurements for everyone across various levels of achievements. These also need to be globally accepted since globalization opened the doors to education in foreign countries. While most grading systems use letters such as A, B, C, D, E, and F, or O, E, D, C, B, and A; GPA uses numbers. The common range for GPA numbers is from 0 to 4 or 0 to 10. This is calculated by assigning a number to the percentage scored in each subject and then calculating the average from that.
The GPA scores are calculated using the number of grade points a student scores over a period of time such as a semester, or an entire year of education. This system is commonly used for students in High Schools and Colleges (both UG and PG courses) and is assessed by various potential employers and educational institutions to assess and compare the applications. The Cumulative Grade Point Average or CGPA is also sometimes referred to as GPA in some institutions, while in others the CGPA is an average of the GPAs for each semester of a course.
Getting a high GPA has become a lot easier for students these days with the addition of the internet in education, and since various online courses are available to aid students in their education. This also means that the competition for the top spot has also significantly increased.
