My school only uses the 100 point scale, and since all of the statistics for College Admissions uses 4.0, I'd like to know how the scale works.

I saw that A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, and so forth. Is it really that simple? On the 100 scale, 90->100 = A. Does that mean that a person with six 90s will have the same 4.0 GPA as someone with six 99s?

A: 4.0

A-: 3.67

B+:3.3

B:3

B-:2.67

C+:2.3

...etc.

If you go through your transcript you can calculate your GPA by adding up and averaging these numbers (being sure to weight appropriately for credit).

468Memberagain, this is just my school, although I think that it's a pretty standard system

701Member1,586Senior MemberReligion, Health, and Art: The grade you get is the grade you get

Non-Honors/Non-AP Classes: Your grade X 1.02 = Weighted Avg

Honors Classes: Your grade X 1.04 = Weighted Avg

AP and Scholars Program Classes: Your grade X 1.06 = Weighted Avg

BC Calc (since it is so hard at my school): Your grade X 1.08 = Weighted Avg

My avg is about 96.4 and the highest avg in the school is about 103.6.

355Memberyour school weights non hns and non AP classes?
