What does GPA stand for?

Grade point average

When we talk about GPA, we’re referring to the average of a student’s grades across all their school classes. It’s an acronym that stands for Grade Point Average.

This GPA can be measured on different scales depending on the school system. For example, in many schools, a 4.0 (or “four point O”) is considered the perfect GPA.

So, if you ever hear a student talking about their GPA, they’re discussing their overall academic performance in school. It’s a quick way to understand how well a student is doing acadically.
