I am new to this website. I am puzzled by the term "weighted" or unweighted gpa.
At my kids high school there is a 4.0 scale. An A is worth 4.0. They don't give A+ (or if they do it too is only worth 4.0)
My daughter has a 4.0. All A's (no A minuses) She can't get higher than this. Many of the grades are in AP classes.
Why or how is that some students get above a 4.0? Do those schools actually use a 5.0 or 4.3 scale.
What am I missing?
Is my daughter's 4.0 weighted or unweighted?
