 Spanish term or phrase: coeficiente de unidades de mérito (CUM) Aparece en un expediente universitaria de El Salvador, y al lado de está frase aparece un número que me imagino es el promedio de las calificaciones (pero no estoy seguro porque no he hecho el cálculo.) Estoy casi seguro que es equivalente al "GPA (Grade Point Average)" en inglés (EEUU), pero quiero estar seguro de verdad. :)

Explanation:

Well,

Here you have both definitions, I think GPA is close enough. At the University in which I studied in Chile, we called it "Promedio Ponderado Acumulado".

Most colleges use both letter grades and GPAs in determining students' grades. Grades at most colleges are figured using the following method: As are worth 4 points Bs are worth 3 points Cs are worth 2 points Ds are worth 1 point Fs are worth 0 points To figure a GPA, simply multiply the number of hours a course is worth by the number of points for the letter grade, then add up the totals for each course and divide by the number of credit hours. The result is the grade point average.
