ok... but lets say my gpa conists of a class in which i got a 90, a class in which i got a 95, and a class it which i got a 93... would u first have to convert the scores to out of 4 (3.67,4,4) and then take the average of those? or do u take the average of all of them and find the '4" score for that

Each class gets a grade point (out of 4.0) and then you take the average of it. (Hence the name grade point average lol.)
So, 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:
Replies to: GPA Conversion
Or
96.8/100 * 4 = 3.872
I 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.
lol.
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.

3.67 + 4 + 4 + .33 + .33 = 12.33 / 3 = GPA of 4.11.
(percentage/100%)*4=GPA in 4.0
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!
A=4
B=3
C=2
D=1
F=0
