Is there a way to check my GPA for my first semester? I thought maybe I could do it through Bear Facts (the way I checked my grades), but I don't see it. I also don't know how to calculate it because Berkeley does the weird + and - thing.
Suppose I got B+ in a 4 unit class, A- in a 3 unit class, and an A in another 3 unit class. Since rider730 kindly mentioned add 0.3 for + and subtract 0.3 for -, my GPA becomes
(3.3*4 + 3.7*3 + 4.0*3) / (4+3+3) = 3.68
Tell me if you still don't get it.
You can tell the 4-unit class has a higher impact on my GPA.
Oh, thanks so much, everyone who answered
Yup, I figured my GPA out with a by-hand calculation and then used Berkeley's GPA calculator to make sure.
So, does an A+ count as a 4.3? Because if so, could someone "fix" their GPA by getting A+'s, in hopes that the 4.3's and the previously low GPA would "cancel out" to produce something close to a 4.0? A Berkeley freshman can only dream...
Replies to: How to check GPA?
Add .3 for a +
Subtract .3 for a -
E.G. - B- is 2.7, C+ is 2.3, A- is 3.7, B is 3.0
Add up the points for all the graded courses you took.
Separately add up the units for all the graded courses you took
Divide the first sum by the second sum.
It will be visible in a few more weeks when the semester grades are all finalized and move over to the cumulate - all grades - section of bearfacts.
(3.3*4 + 3.7*3 + 4.0*3) / (4+3+3) = 3.68

Are the differences in gpa calculation noted in grad school apps? -__-
