    What scale dies your school grade on?

    If they grade on a 4.0 scale your gpa is 3.21/ 4.0

    If your gpa is 3.21 and the scale is 4.33 your gpa is still 3.21

    If I told you that I had a 2.0 GPA on a 5-point scale, I presume you could tell me what my GPA is on a 10-point scale. The process is the same for answering your question.

    You should not translate your GPA in any way. You should report your GPA exactly as your HS does. Your HS will send a school profile which, among other things, explains your HS grading system so your GPA will be reviewed in the proper context.

    @TigerInWinter the difference between an 4.0 and a 4.3 scale is the inclusion of A+’s. If you have no A+‘a, your GPA doesn’t change. Not the same as converting to a new scale where most grades would change point value.

    Agreed.
