Calculation of Semester Grade Point Average (GPA)

For each course, the number of credits is multiplied by the numerical value of the ordinal grade received to obtain the Grade Points:
(Number of ECTS) X (Numerical (European) Value of the Ordinal Grade) = Grade Points

Then, calculate the semester grade point average by dividing the sum of grade points by the sum of the semester credits:(Sum of Grade Points) / (Sum of Semester Credits) = Semester Grade Point Average
