Do >4.0 GPAs exist on undergraduate level?

<p>Just to clear something up.</p>

<p>Yes they do. Some places have A+ count as 4.3. Stanford comes to mind.</p>

<p>Some, but not all.</p>

<p>***? That's ridiculous.</p>

<p>lol...some schools have</p>


<p>and so it basically works both ways, since if yo get an A- you wont get all 4 points, you'll lose those .3 points to the A+ kid...</p>

<p>There are a couple schools out there, but they are exceedingly rare. </p>

<p>Also, since most grad schools use standardized, national application services, most weighted GPA's are rescored to be put on a normal 4.0 scale - basically putting all the A+ to 4.0 and keeping everything else the same.</p>

<p>Caltech apparently has A+ grades.</p>

<p>Sucks for us grad students that don't care about grades but get curves ruined by these absurd undergrads going way overboard. :(</p>

<p>Rice also has A+, A, A-, and so on with 4.33 given to an A+, 4.00 for an A, etc.</p>

<p>MIT has a 5.0 scale I think, people can get 4.8 there</p>

<p>Richmond is on a 4.0 scale.</p>

<p>Columbia has A+=4.3</p>

<p>Oberlin has A+=4.33, but very very few professors will even award them, even with a perfect score in a class.</p>

<p>UCLA has A+ technically, but it only counts as a 4.0, which is the way it should work, IMO. College students don't need this >4.0 BullS--t</p>

<p>The vast majority of schools don't award grades over 4.0</p>

<p>As with high schools, every college does it differently. From what I've read, there's a little less variety at the undergrad level than at the HS level, but it's still all over the board. </p>

<p>My GPA was out of 12.0 (no A+, A=12, A-=11, etc.).</p>
