At Holmesglen, a Grade Point Average (GPA) is given to students on the completion of their courses - a useful tool which students can use to apply for educational and employment opportunities both locally and worlwide.

The GPA is the average result of all grades achieved by a student in their course of study, weighted  by the credit value of each subject.  Holmesglen has adopted a four- point GPA system.

GPA is an internationally recognised measure for establishing equivalence across different grading systems.

A GPA will be reported to students on completion of their course and an explanation of the GPA will appear on the student's academic transcript.  A GPA for completed subjects may be requested if the student leaves the course prior to completion.

GPA Formula

The value for the grade achieved for each is multiplied by the number of credit points for that subject. Each degree has a listing of subject credit points located in the Program Structure section.  These weighted grade values are totalled and then divided by the total number of subject credit points.
