# 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

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.
