I have a page, Student.

enter image description here

Below in the Student Schedule, I can edit the Grade by double clicking on it and the page will update when I click save. When I update the list, I run a function that calculates the GPA. I can get the value in the object, but the page does not reflect the change until I refresh the page. Is there a way to rerender the page when I click the save button so that the GPA will show?

<apex:page standardController="Students__c" extensions="StudentCourseList">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:pageBlock title="Student Schedule" id="student_schedule">
        <apex:outputText value="{!message}" style="font-weight:bold;color:red" escape="false" />

            <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!courseDetails}" var="st">

                        <apex:param name="studentcourse_id" value="{!st.id}" assignTo="{!studentcourse_id}"/>

You can refresh the page using javascript. First you would need to add reRender on the commandButton so that you can call javascript after the save action is completed.

<apex:commandbutton action="{!saveGrade}" id="SaveAccid" value="Save" reRender="student_schedule" oncomplete="window.top.location = '/{!s.Id}';"></apex:commandbutton>
