What's a 96 unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale exactly?

    According to my handy-dandy... calculator! :) It would seem that a 96 would be a 3.84...

    100/25 = 4.0
    96/25 = 3.84

    I could be wrong, though ^^; Hope you get more answers!

    Well, that would be unfair, because that assumes a 100 = 4.0, when that is far from the case. In fact, you could TECHNICALLY have a 90 average and still have a 4.0.

    Yeah, it's not really a fair comparison.

    To calculate your unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale, use the following system:

    4 = A, 3 = B, 2 = C, 1 = D, F = 0 (and I highly doubt that you have any of the last three)

    So add those up for each semester of each class you've had and then divide by the total number of classes. If you've gotten A's in every single class, then it's a 4.0. If you've gotten mostly A's and a few B's, it should be really close to 4.0.

    yeh, i dunno. if you're trying to just convert it simply, it's a 3.84..I'm really not sure though, if 4.0 counts as 100% of the 100 that you're speaking of. My school doesn't do UW..just W, it makes it much easier to keep track of everything.
