# GPA question: How do you convert from 0-100 scale?

I know that my unweighted average is about 92/93. What is this on a 4.0 scale? How do you figure that out?

Thanks!

a 92/93 is like 3.9

Oedipus..what's a 97 then..like a 4.0.
• Registered User Posts: 7,242 Senior Member
at my high school the 92/93 would be a 3.5 (B+). At my college it's a 3.7 (A-)

Err I always thought that to convert from the 100 pt scale to the 4 pt scale you simply divide by 100 and then multiply by for.. so a 92% would be a 3.68.

they can't be converted, they are completely different measurements.

Try converting centimeters to pounds!

I suppose they can be approximated...but there is not set conversion.

At my school, a 92 would be an A, so it might be a 4.0. But points are granted by having an A or B or whatever in the class, not overall, so if you have a 92 from all A's, it'd be a 4.0, but if you got some higher A's but also a few B's along the way, you'd have a lower GPA.

just use the COLLEGBOARD scale

How to Convert Your GPA to a 4.0 Scale

A+ (97-100) = 4.0
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7

B+ (87-89) = 3.3
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7

C+ (77-79) = 2.3
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7

D+ (67-69) = 1.3
D (65-66) = 1.0
E/F (below 65) = 0.0

If you want an accurate conversion, you have to convert all grades individually and then calculate your GPA from there. Converting just the GPA doesn't work because as KrazyKow pointed out, a 93 average might be a 4.0 if you got 93s everywhere or it might be a 3.5 if it's a mix of 96s and 89s.

A --- 100 - 90 --- 4.0-3.5
B --- 89 - 80 --- 3.49-2.5
C --- 79 - 70 --- 2.49-1.5
D --- 69 - 60 --- 1.49-1.0
F --- Below 60 --- 0.0

Note:
A '+' means .33333 added to the whole number.
A '-' means .6667 added to the whole number.

Each school is different. My school for example doesn't use A+. Some schools do.

you could convert them mathematically by bringing it into the required fraction but every school has a different rigor of scoring, that's where the problem lies.

This is a great site for converting grades to a 4.0 US scale according to your country of education:

all of you suck at math

get the number your interested and multiply it times 0.04

there you go.

92*0.04 = 3.68

if your school reports your gpa out of a hundred this is how you convert
• Registered User Posts: 678 Member
Rsala, that's incorrect. You're saying that a 75 warrants a 3.0 gpa, and 65 gets you a 2.6. It's not that simple.

You can go by the collegeboard conversion chart for the most part.

nice calling everyone stupid, but you are wrong.

If you really want a formula, here is one, calibrated against x5's being x.0...

((grade - 65) / 10) + 1
