"Grade average to date is _________ on a scale of ________"

    Ask guidance counselor.

    But my guess is that most people have their unweighted in the scale out of 4.0
    So 3.8 on a scale of 4.0.

    If it was out of a hundred it would be like "94 on a scale of 100"

    yeah i second glenny, but you send NU your transcript anyhow, so i don't think it's the end of the world if you mess up. :-)
