When you complete a module at UWS you will receive a mark expressed as a percentage. This mark is associated with a grade.
Since 2016/17, a Grade Point Average (GPA) is applied to your result. For example, a mark of 65% would mean a grade of B1 and a grade point score of 2.5.
The GPA is the average of all of your grade points, with each module weighted according to its credit value so, for example, a 40 credit module would carry twice the weight of a 20 credit module. Otherwise, all modules are counted equally so modules in later stages of your programme are given no additional weight over modules from earlier in your programme.
Your GPA will be automatically calculated in Banner on a rolling basis and you will be able to view your current GPA there at any time.
Further information can be found in the GPA Information Booklet.
