Do any high schools have a harsher grading system than mine? At my high school: A+=98-100=4.0 A =95-97 =3.8 A- =93-94 =3.6 B+=90-92 =3.3 B =87-89 I'm not sure after here what it is on a 4 point scale B- =85-86 C+=83-84 C =80-82 C- =77-79 D+=75-76 D =72-74 D- =70-71 F =Below 70 I know that the conversions don't really matter for college, but it certainly looks worse. Oh, and we do weight grades… one whole point on a 100 point scale for an AP class. As you might imagine, our top 10% is filled with people who barely take any honors or AP classes. Reply

Grading at my school is completely inconsistent. In one class, 96+ is A+. Another, 99.99999999 is still just an A. One class rounds up 89 to A-. Another, 89.999999 is still a B+. Reply
