HOW TO COMPUTE A GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)
Total the "equivalents" from the list above for each grade received.
(4.33 for each A+, 2.00 for each C, 0.00 for each E, etc.)
Divide this total by the number of grades or equivalents included and round to 2 decimal places.
Fall Semester grades A, B+, B-, C+ 4.00+3.33+2.67+2.33 = 12.33 Fall GPA = 12.33/4 = 3.08
Spring Semester grades B-, C+, C, D-, E 2.67+2.33+2.00+0.67+0.00 = 7.67 Spring GPA = 7.67/5 = 1.53
Cumulative GPA 12.33+7.67 = 20.00/9 or 2.22

Without knowing your grades for each class, your school's grading scale & how many credit hours each class is worth, there is no way for you to tell. But by using a generic grading scale, & assuming all classes are worth exactly the same credit hours (3) then you can make a guess.
A = 4 A- = 3.75 B+ = 3.5 B = 3.25 B- = 3 C+ = 2.75 C = 2.25 C- = 2 D+ = 1.75 D = 1.5 D- = 1 F = 0
Multiple your grade point score (above) by the number of credit hours (assume 3 each class). Then add them all up & divide that number / 24 (because 8, assuming you have 8 total classes, times 3, credit hours, equals 24).
That being said, usually core classes such as Math, English, and Science, or if you're taking any honors/AP's, are usually worth more credits & are worth more to your grade. Classes like Art & PE are worth fewer credit hours & worth less towards your grade. Also, your report card should have your GPA on it. Well, at least my school does that, haha.
And, here's a generator to do the math (: http://funadvice.com/r/bidg74p8p0m
u put all ure grade averages together then divide them by how many grade averages u have i think
