Is it
A=4.0
B=3.0
C=2.0
D=1.0
F=0

Or is it

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

Usually, they will drop the pluses and minuses. This is a good thing for an A- but a bad thing for a B+.

What fledgling says is usually the case.

The main way to do it is A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0 with these letter grades either on the 7 point or 10 point scale. Other places calculate GPA really oddly, like for unweighted at mine your GPA is: 4.0-(96-x)/8, maximum of 4.0, for each course. Your school should calculate it, and if it doesn't...it doesn't really matter, some colleges recalculate GPA (and a lot of them do it completely differently) and some don't. Just get the highest A's you can.

My school does it this way:

A+ (97-100) = 4.4
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7

B+ (87-89) = 3.4
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7

C+ (77-79) = 2.4
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7

D+ (67-69) = 1.4
D (65-66) = 1.0
E/F (below 65) = 0.0

It bugs me a bit because every year there are a few students who have their way of bumping their As to A+s, not through diligence or intelligence but by being favorable with the teacher.
