UBC calculates grade averages based on a weighted average calculation. The process to calculate a weighted grade average for a group of courses is as follows:

  1. For each course in a group of selected courses, multiply the course grade by the number of credits for that particular course.
  2. Total the calculations from step 1 for all selected courses.
  3. Total the number of credits for all selected courses.
  4. Divide the sum calculated in step 2 by the sum calculated in step 3.

Sample calculation

Step 1 Result
BIOL 116: 75% x 3 credits 225
CHEM 201: 80% x 3 credits 240
ENGL 209: 79% x 3 credits 237
CULT 310: 88% x 6 credits 528
PHIL 220: 82% x 3 credits 246
Step 2  
225 + 240 + 237 + 528 + 264 1,476
Step 3  
3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 6 18
Step 4  
1,476 / 18 82.0%
