A+ and A both count as 4.0... do graduate schools see it that way too?
At my college, an A+ counts the same as an A on the GPA grading scale. Both grades equal 4.
I know that different colleges have different methods of calculating GPA. For example, some honors classes are weighted more heavily than regular classes. It depends on the college.
I'm interested in applying to graduate school. How do graduate school admissions advisers delineate between weighted and non-weighted GPAs? Do they even bother?
The reason I'm wondering is because I'm currently a student trying to earn an undergraduate degree. Should I be striving for the A+, even though it currently makes no difference on my GPA scale? In other words, according to the GPA grading scale I adhere to now, an average of 93% and 100% are both counted equally as 4.0 each. So should I be content with that or worry about if a graduate school will lower my GPA if I don't have A+'s?
Sorry if that's confusing. It's just something I've been really wondering about! Thank you for your help!
