    in California the highest possible honor grade points from certified honors/ APs is 8 (2 max in sophomore year, 6 max in junior) so the highest possible GPA is 4.67
    (4+4+4+4+5+5) X 2 semesters /12 periods=4.33
    (5+5+5+5+5+5) X 2 semesters /12periods=5
    if everything works perfectly, this turns out to be 4.67

    A=4 B=3 sharp cut :D
