the gpa is always put out of 4.0 but in my high school we have it out of 100 and mine is about 96.8. Around what would this be in the 4-point scale??

96.8/100 * 4 = 3.872

32,240Senior Member32,240Senior Member1,093Senior MemberI don't understand that - on a 4.0 scale, assuming a 96.8 is an A, then you would have a 4.0.

93-100 = A = 4.0

90-92 = A- = 3.67

88-90 = B+ = 3.33

83-87 = B = 3.0

etc.

at my school (and as far as i know pretty much everywhere except CA) a 93 is just as much a 4.0 as a 100 is.

32,240Senior Member1,093Senior MemberSo, a 90, 93, and 95 - that's 3.67, 4, and 4. Add them together, you get 11.67. Divide that by the number of classes (3) and you get a GPA of 3.89. Now, if those classes are honors/AP you throw a boost into the equation. At my school, honors/AP get a boost of .33. So, if 2 out of the three were honors, you'd take:

3.67 + 4 + 4 + .33 + .33 = 12.33 / 3 = GPA of 4.11.

It isn't fair...you have to have a 100 to have 4.0, but I'm over it!

We use mostly the 100% scale though!

32,240Senior MemberA=4

B=3

C=2

D=1

F=0
