If you are on a 4 point system then multiply your classes with As by 4 and your B classes by 3, add the results and divide by the then divide by the total number of classes. For instance if you had 27 classes through the end of junior year one of which was a B and the others As then your GPA at the end of junior year would be 3.96 (26 x 4 = 104, 1 x 3 = 3. 3+104 = 107. 107/27 = 3.96) if you have 9 classes your senior year then your GPA would be 3.97 (36 classes - 35 x 4 = 144, 1 x 3 = 3, 3+144 = 147. 147/36 = 3.97) If your grades are not on a 4 point scale or if there is weighting for AP classes then you would have to take that into account.

Swimcatsmom thought that you meant that you've had all A's with one B throughout high school, but I take it that you mean for this year? Reply
