4.0 Scale

which is the correct 4.0 scale
this:

100-90 A 4.0
89-80 B 3.0
79-70 C 2.0
69-60 D 1.0
<60 F

OR

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

I have a few A minuses and I was wondering if the second scale was the one I should use

    what are you talking about?

    if this is referring to your high school, no one knows

    if this is referring to columbia, there's no such thing. percentages don't correspond to a certain grade.

    the gpa system is :

    A = 4, B=3, C=2, D=1
    + = plus 0.33
    - = minus 0.33

    so b- = 2.67

    Columbia works on a 4.3 scale, not 4.0.

    This is for Columbia, not my high school. I already know the policy for my school.

    Yes they do, usually in the introductory math and science classes. I have a friend who has gotten like 2 or 3 A+s. Little *****...
