 01-02-2009, 11:29 PM #6 Junior Member   Join Date: Oct 2008 Location: israel Posts: 154 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.

 01-03-2009, 01:41 AM #10 Member   Join Date: Apr 2008 Location: Places Posts: 941 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 Reply
