96.8/100 * 4 = 3.872

32,310Senior Member32,310Senior 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.

32,310Senior 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!

B=3

C=2

D=1

F=0
