Why Cumulative GPA is important

Cumulative GPAGrades are an essential part of our education. Whether in letters or numbers, they are used to define the quality of our knowledge about a certain topic. William Farish, a tutor from England, is the person who invented grades . He wanted to process his students quicker, so he came up with the idea of grades for defining their knowledge. Today, because of him, we have a well-established grading system that can calculate how well we’ve done in a course, semester or a year.
GPA is, what we call, a “Grade Point Average.” All of those grades that we get in courses have to be summed up and give a total numerical average, showing how we’ve done in a term. This is where the Cumulative GPA steps in. As the name says, it’s a cumulative of all grades, their average, in other words. Cumulative GPA is the sum of all our grades divided by the sum of all of their credit hours. You have to be careful because some courses can have a lower or a higher number of credit hours, which means an A in a 2 credit hour course will not be the same as an A in a 4 credit hour course. If the Cumulative GPA is the difference of all our grades and credit hours in one term, then an Overall GPA shows the average of all Cumulative GPAs throughout our educational period.
