# Quick, I need help finding my GPA?

I have a 88.5 unweighted grade out of 100

My schools policy is
A:93-100
B:85-92
C:78-84

Can someone help me translate my 88.5/100 to a 4 point GPA?

Most of the time they multiply the number by 4 and divide by 100, giving you a 3.54 GPA. But the problem is there is no set accepted GPA conversion formula, so if it's out of 100 leave it as is.

i'm not sure how to convert your specific case but this is the general way:
IF
A = 90-100
B = 80-89
C = 70-79
etc.
THEN
4.0 = 95+
3.9 = 94
3.8 = 93
etc.

so if your school did grades this way then you would have a 3.35. but since your school grades a bit differently, i'm not sure.

Doesn't really matter what your school says your GPA is, the colleges you apply to recalculate it.

It gets re-calculated from your transcript

College Board has this table:
A+ (97-100) = 4.0
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7

B+ (87-89) = 3.3
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7

C+ (77-79) = 2.3
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7

D+ (67-69) = 1.3
D (65-66) = 1.0
E/F (below 65) = 0.0
