## Difference between GPA and CGPA

GPA stands for  Grade Points Average.  CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Points Average.  GPA means calculation of grade for only one semester, it does not include all semester grades to calculate your grades.  But CGPA means calculation of grade for all the semesters or more than one semester.  By including all semesters and finding a single grade is the final grade you obtain in your marksheet.

## How To Calculate GPA:

GPA means calculation of total grade for only one semester.
1. First we need to find total sum of credit hours.
2. Then we need to multiply the credit hours and the grade points for each subject.
3. And we need to find the total sum of the multiplication of credit hours and grade points.
4. Then we need to divide the answer we find in step 3 with the total sum of credit hours
This is for only one semester.  That is why it is called GPA.
