Full Answer

GPAs are calculated by using a formula that translates a letter grade into a numerical score, which is then multiplied by the number of credits the class is worth. Additional weights are often added based on the difficulty of the course. Since not all schools use the same grading system and weights, GPAs are not standardized. Colleges often apply other variables to high school GPAs when reviewing GPAs for admission decisions.
