7 point grading scale

Can I just say that I really hate being on the 7 point grading scale. I have a 91.5 in English which is a B and it's really irritating me.

The thing that gets me is half my classes are on the 7 point scale and the other half are on the 10 point scale and it's really messing with my GPA.

Are any of you also on the 7 point grading scale?

    For my school it's basically a 4 point grading scale, meaning a 96 is an A and is a 4.0, but a 93 is also an A, but is about a 3.5. It really does suck, and I wish there was a universal grading scale that schools had to adopt, but it feels wrong to complain when I see people with a grading scale even worse than I have.

    I'm on a 7 point grading scale. The thing that sucks about my school's system is that even if you take all honors or AP classes, only 4 of the classes get weighted.

    10 point scale with +/-'s counting against you. It could be worse and it could be better.

    Im on an all 7 point scale, they did something weird with GPA though. 92.5 is an A and 4.0 but 92 is a B and a 3.85, then 90 is 3.625 etc...

    @Quacoh: That's how mine is too! I hate it. I made a 94 in freakin' Health&PE because of the final exam which was pretty much a one hundred question test on STD's and it's the class keeping me from having a perfect GPA. :(
