It’s a good idea to know what your semester GPA is and how that can impact your cumulative GPA and your graduation plans. Experimenting with different grades that you might earn in a course can help you figure out what grades you need to make to attain a certain GPA. This is particularly helpful if you are trying to avoid probation or suspension, or are shooting for a certain GPA for a scholarship or internship.
