## Calculating GPA is Key to a Student’s Success

GPA calculators help to determine your grade point average.  The points given for a grade are divided into the total credit hours earned for a particular class and the result is your grade point average.  An ‘A’ is the equivalent of 4 points and an ‘F’ is the equivalent of 0 points.  The number associated with the grade is used to perform the calculations that determine GPA.  GPA’s are important information for the education detail listed on a resume.  This information gives a potential employer an idea of the job candidate’s character.  If the applicant was hard working and intelligent as a student, that same hard work ethic could translate well into a diligent, hard working employee.

To use the GPA calculator, enter the classes and the credit hours taking each class earns.  GPA calculators can be used to calculate grade point averages for college courses and high school courses.  As long as the grading system is point-based or letter-based with references to a numerical system, like the following indicates:
A = 4.0                        C+ = 2.3
A-=3.7                        C = 2.0
B+ = 3.33                    C- = 1.7
B = 3.0                        D+ = 1.3
B- = 2.7                        D = 1.0
D- = 0.70

Based on the grades received, the equivalent numerical figure is included in the calculations.  It is as important to know the credit hours received for a course as it is to know what grades were received for the course.  Credit hours are listed on the official course schedule and are normally listed next to the course on any curriculum list.  If for some reason the student doesn’t have this information, it can be obtained from the Dean’s office of the school.  This total number of credit hours for all classes is combined for a particular school period, a semester or quarter and then used as the number in which to divide the grades.

The GPA calculator takes this information and then makes the necessary calculations.  An example would be a student attempting to obtain a Bachelors degree in Science in the field of Graphic Design.  In order to keep his scholarship he is required to maintain a 3.0 GPA.  If his school divides education periods into quarters, he attends school in 4 month periods.  So every 4 months or every quarter his GPA must equal 3.0.  If he takes 5 courses:  Photoshop II for 3 credits; Typography I for 2 credits; Illustrator IV for 3 credits; AutoCAD for 4 credits and Advertising 203 for 3 credits.  If the grades earned are one A, two A-‘s, one B- and one C+, the grade point average is 3.35.  This student will continue to receive his scholarship for school.

The GPA calculator is an important tool for students hoping to continue in receiving assistance for tuition and other expenses, when their GPA is directly associated with their qualifications for that assistance.  The GPA calculator also helps students properly inform others of their scholastic performance, such as employers and other schools they may wish to attend.  Many schools determine their admittance based on a student’s academic performance.  Knowing your GPA could mean the difference between getting in the school of your choice and not being considered or being rejected.  The GPA Calculator keeps students in a position to always know their status in school so that they can share this information with the other parties like employers or other learning institutions.

## My Short Term Loan Solution

Recently My wife and I decided we wanted to go on holiday and we had seen this great deal but the problem was that we needed to pay for the entire holiday because it was a late deal. My credit card is maxed out and I knew that I would be able to pay this back off as soon as I got paid in a couple of weeks time.

I looked into a bank overdraft but the interest and late payment fees for every transaction would cost me and arm and a leg. So I searched the internet and found the perfect solution for me. I found a site offering a cash loan of anything up to £1000. I only needed £600 as after all it was a cracking deal. But I borrowed the full amount to give me some spending money too. I applied online and got my money in my account within an hour of applying and just in time to get this last minute deal.

My wife and I are happy now knowing that we can go on holiday and chill out and I can pay this back when I get paid, which is whilst I’ll be away.
