It depends on the max GPA for each class and the number of credits you take. The first step is to figure out what GPA you need to get in the next 2 semesters get a 3.0 overall. Then you can see what your schools max GPA is and see if its possible.

To figure out what you would need to get, take the number of credit hours you have previously taken and divide them by the total number you will have taken at the end of the two semesters. This gives you the weighting factor for your current GPA. Then take the number of credit hours you plan on taking and divide them by the total number to get the weighting factor for your unknown GPA.

Its actually simpler than I’m making it sound. Take a look at this example.

Let’s assume so far that you have taken 4 semesters worth of classes, 15 credits each semester (60 credit hours to date). In the next 2 semesters you also plan on taking 15 credits each semester (30 credits). The total is 90 credits. Therefore, you have (60/90) of your GPA at 2.5. You have (30/90) of you GPA at X.

You want you GPA at 90 credit hours to be 3.0, so solve for X.

(60/90)*2.5 + (30/90)*X = 3.0

In this case, X=4.0, so you would need a 4.0 over the next two semesters to get a 3.0. You can plug in your actual numbers and figure out what you will need to get.

it would be possible.. you need to know how many credits are you planning to take and the possiblities of getting good grades with those subjects.

it go by your garde point avege

First you subtract your math grades, then you divide by your total credit hours, then you have a nice day. Just kidding.

Assuming you are a beginning sophomore, and have one year’s credit at 2.5, you need to pull a 3.5 gpa this year. I don’t know what the weighted scale is, but if the 2.5 is already weighted, then you need to earn a weighted 3.5 this year.

It is possible, but you will have to check on how many credits you already have. If you make a 4.0 for two consecutive semester’s the review board will look more favorable on your application.

If you only have 10 credits, then it should be no probem, but if you have 180 credits then it will be very difficult to raise your GPA that much in two semesters.

The following is a general method for calculating G.P.A. used by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The department is free to calculate the G.P.A. in any way they see fit however, the student should still meet the minimum FGS requirements of 3.0 in the last 60 credit hours or equivalent by the method described below. To be considered for the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship, students will need to achieve a minimum of 3.5 in their last two full years of study.

All applicants require a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0 (B) or equivalent in their last 60 credit hours of study. In general, this is equivalent to 4 semesters of study or 2 years of study. This will depend on the education system of the university issuing the transcripts. In some cases, the whole degree program may need to be taken into consideration, as courses may not be broken into semesters or even years. Note that the last two years of study may be split between two degrees or institutes (e.g., one year of Master’s work plus the last year of Bachelor’s work).

The method of calculating the G.P.A. is to first interpret a grade into an equivalent University of Manitoba grade. This method is used in order to create a more equal opportunity of admission for applicants. A listing of countries and their equivalent grading scales can be found on the Criteria for International Applications web page. In addition, the same page provides information on previous degrees required for entrance into a graduate program.

For example:

U.M Scale China

A+ = 95-100%

A = 90-94%

B+ = 85-89%

B = 80-84%

C+ =75-80%

C = 70-74%

D = 60-69%

F = 0-59%

Therefore, if the applicant completed 4 courses in China with final scores of 96%, 83%, 72% and71%, they would have the equivalent University of Manitoba grades of 1 A+, 1 B and 2 C’s. The G.P.A. would then be calculated as if calculating a University of Manitoba application.

Note: since credit hours systems differ across the world, the two-years of full-time study are not determined by credited hours. However, once the two years of study have been defined, a weighted G.P.A.’s can be calculated for international applicants if transcripts indicate number of credit hours. If transcripts do not indicate credit hours, a weighted GPA is not calculated.

Please refer to the sample transcripts found at the bottom of this page for further examples of G.P.A. calculations.

In some instances, a grading scale may be indicated on the official transcript. If this is the case, this scale should be used; if this is not the case, the scale suggested on the web page referred to above should be used. This scale should only be used if found on the original language transcripts.

If the country you are searching for is not listed or you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the appropriate Student Program Assistant at the Faculty of Graduate Studies for further information.

In cases where the conversion scales for GPA can not be divided onto a 4.5 scale (i.e. include pluses, such as A+. B+, C+. Etc), please convert the final GPA out of 4.0 to the equivalent out of 4.5. I.e.: x/4.0 = y/4.5. This calculation will be used to determine whether the applicant is eligible to receive the International Graduate Student Entrance Scholarship only. This conversion is not used to determine admissibility of an applicant.

How to Calculate the Grade Point Average

The MIT grade point average is calculated on a 5.0 scale.

Separate grade point averages are calculated for a student’s undergraduate and graduate records. Subjects with level U are included in the undergraduate grade point average. Subjects with levels H, G and N are included in the graduate grade point average.

The following are not included in the calculation:

subjects with a grade of P, S, URN, SA, T

subjects, if not completed, with a grade of I, OX, J, U

grades earned in Advanced Standing Exams

ROTC subjects

When an ongoing subject, such as thesis, is completed sum the units of J grade received in prior terms and apply the final grade to the total.

For a Masters level thesis a maximum of 24 units is used in the calculation; doctoral level thesis units are not included in the calculation.

A repeated subject counts in your GPA each time you take it.

Freshmen do not have a GPA for their first semester (including IAP) since none of the grades received (P, DN, FN) is included in the calculation.

Grades used in the calculation are weighted as follows: A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, F=0, O=0.

Total all the units of “A” level work and multiply this number by 5. Total all units of “B” level work and multiply by 4 and so on. Add the results and divide by the total number of units. The resulting number is rounded to one decimal place.

Conversion to a 4.0 Scale

Substitute the following values: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0, O=0.

Note: a record not containing F’s or O’s can be converted to 4.0 scale by subtracting 1 from the 5.0 result.

Where the GPA Displays

Your cumulative grade point average displays on your grade report (internal record) and on your transcript (external record).

Your term grade point average displays only on your grade report (internal record).

Average all the grades and divide it by 4.0
