A- counts as 4.5? What?

<p>Hi! So recently my friend told me that some colleges count A-s in weighted classes as 4.5 points instead of 5. Is that accurate? </p>

<p>I'm worried because for all these years I was under the impression that as long as we got an A- in an AP or Honors class, we would be receiving 5 points. Also, all schools don't use the same grading system. For example, at our school an 89.5% is still considered an A- but my friend's school counts it as a B because it's below 90%.</p>

<p>Most colleges don't actually even care about weighted grades, actually, it will be either a 3.7 or a 4.0.</p>
