Grade point average (GPA)

At UWA your grade point average (GPA) is a simple numerical index which summarises academic performance in a course. Your GPA is reported on your Statement of Academic Record and published under progression on studentConnect. GPA will only appear on your Statement of Academic Record if you began your course from 2005 onwards.

Your GPA is calculated using these values with the formula as follows:

(a) The GPA calculation includes all attempts at units which are awarded a numeric grade

(b) Unfinalised results are not included in the calculation.
