Converting GPA from 100 to 4.0 scale

<p>My school gives our GPA on a 100 point scale. But the scholarship i'm applying for asks for my GPA on a 4.0 scale.</p>

<p>I was converting all my grades, but what do I do for my senior year? I did not receive my final averages from my classes yet; I only have grades from the first 3 quarters.</p>

<p>Question - on the 100 point scale, does it mean that it takes the average of your grades in your classes or does an A equal an 100? If its the first, then how do people get 100% averages?</p>

<p>A+ (97-100) = 4.0
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7</p>

<p>B+ (87-89) = 3.3
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7</p>

<p>C+ (77-79) = 2.3
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7</p>

<p>D+ (67-69) = 1.3
D (65-66) = 1.0
F (below 65) = 0.0</p>

<p>average of your grades. A is 90-100, B is 80-89 and so on.</p>

<p>okay, I KNOW HOW TO CONVERT from 100 to 4.0 scale. PLEASE READ THE QUESTION.</p>

<p>What do I do for my senior year?? since I did not get my final average from my classes yet. I get my report card in like 2 weeks, but the scholarship is due next week, and they ask for GPA</p>

<p>Why are you asking a bunch of kids? Do you have a college counselor? You can't seriously expect any of us to be able to know.</p>

<p>Take each class
90-100 becomes 4.0
80-89 becomes 3.0
70-79 becomes 2.0 etc
add 1.0 to each weighted class if it asks for weighted GPA</p>

<p>Add all the points from each class and divide by the number of classes.</p>

<p>Another correct way would be dividing your grade in % by the number 25.
For example, an 86 average would make a GPA of 3.44.</p>

<p>Impossible. It means that you ahve to get 100 in order to get 4.0</p>

<p>Look, each school might do it differently so you need to go to your counselor.</p>

<p>@billie: No that would be completely unfair to be jipped like that.</p>

<p>That is how my schools does GPA... they primarily score out of 100. Honors + AP get a 5 pt bonus (which, unlike most schools, means only a modest increase in GPA on a 4.0 scale). Guidance counselors then take your GPA and divide by 25. Not a "true" unweighted GPA.</p>

<p>I loathe the way unweighted GPAs are calculated. My lowest grade is an 88 (4 Bs 2 As all AP/Honors... kinda slipped Jr year tbh) but apparently my GPA is a 3.33 (82). Stupid system. Actual GPA with no weights is a 3.6, reported GPA on transcript is 3.8. Thankfully all my top choices don't recalculate</p>

<p>How do you have an 82 GPA with no grades lower than 88?</p>

<p>I have an 88, 88, 89, 89, 92, 93 (All APs/honors)</p>

<p>(4+4+3+3+3+3)/6*25= 83 (3.33)</p>

<p>Wow, excuse my uncouth response, but many of you are seriously misinformed. Think about it from a mathematical perspective. A GPA is on a scale. Thus, only a perfect 100 is a 4.0 (unweighted, of course). The method in converting grades on a "1-100" scale to a "1.0-4.0" GPA Standard Scale, is by multiplying the number by 4, then dividing that by 100. </p>

<p>So a 96 would be : 96 <em>4= 384, and then 384 /100= 3.84. Henceforth, a 96 is a 3.84. A 99 will be : 99</em>4= 396 /100= 3.96. This is how it goes. Lower than a 90 average will translate to lower than a 3.60 GPA. This is all, hypothetically, on an unweighted 4.0 GPA Standard scale. Good luck to you with all of your endeavors.</p>

<p>That is incorrect. That makes no logical sense at all. Then, if I work hard and achieve a 98 average, I have the same 4.0 as a slacker with a 91 average. Use your head.</p>

<p>@Jacobtess no way possible with you calculation. So a person with a 75 would have a 3.0. That's way to low. A 3.0 is a 85 while a 4.0 is a 95-100. Calculating a 100 to a 4.0 scale means to take each course and re- calculate it. A lot of work but it can pay off in the end. Since a 100 doesn't convert well to a 4.0 scale.</p>

<p>Lol, this is correct, a 3.0 is a 75. What can I tell you?</p>

<p>A 3.0 is not a 75. If that were the case then getting a 70s average will out you in a Community college. Mathematically yes, but in a GPA scale no way. </p>

<p>How</a> to Convert Your GPA to a 4.0 Scale</p>

<p>That's the proper way to convert.</p>

<p>I wish you were right. But you're not. For any school that recalculates GPA they use the 4 3 2 1 scale. Not all schools recalculate.</p>

<p>I didn't know this was how it was done until I did some research. My schools just takes our GPA out of 100 and divides by 25. This would be a weighted GPA. What toxic is describing is unweighted, which is what top schools use when recalculating your GPA.</p>
