My high school grades on a 12 point scale and it's really annoying that it doesn't really apply to the standard format directly. The formula is as follows: A+ is 12, A is 11, A- is 10, etc.
I was wondering if colleges recalculate GPA when they receive applications, because mine is obnoxiously hard to evaluate. I've done mostly honors classes, but I have no idea how they are weighted, so if anyone has a generally accepted formula, that would be appreciated too.
From calculating on my own I have a 11.879/12 Weighted GPA and a 3.927/4 Unweighted, but I really don't know how these two numbers can coexist.
