Hate to be pedantic: Converting IB grades to GPA?

<p>I'm ridiculously well-versed on this process by now (God knows) but can't seem to get my head around this. I know that a 7 grade in IB is equivalent to an A+, a 6 is an A and so on, but I'm curious what that means for GPAs. If I had, say, a 7 in English but a 5 in History, would they cancel out and leave me with a 4.0? For our grading system, a 7 and a 5 cancel out to give you the "ideal" 6 status, i.e. an A average. So can 7, 7, 6, 5, 5 equal a 4.0? And if I were to have scores of 7, 7, 7, 7, 6, would that be a 4.0 unweighted and a 4.6something weighted? Or does weighted not even exist in the IB program? Thank you, sincerely, for your help, I hope this is decipherable.</p>

<p>I hope you know that the grades we receive on our exams have NO connection with our GPA. The exams scores are for college and nothing else. </p>

<p>We do get a multiplier. At my school hey multilply my grades by 1.2 to boost my GPA.</p>

<p>Well in America at least, not sure about overseas. Although it should be the same</p>

<p>Yes, I do know that - although I think our predicted grades are sent off and likely contribute as if they were the given exam results. In our semester reports and throughout the year we earn grades on a 1-7 basis, no As, Bs, no percentages.</p>

<p>Most schools use one of these:</p>

<p>90-100 A</p>

<p>80-89 B</p>

<p>etc. (no plus or minus, and A = 4.0 B = 3.0 no matter how high or low the letter grade is)</p>


<p>A = 4.0</p>

<p>A- = 3.6</p>

<p>B+ = 3.3</p>

<p>B = 3.0</p>


<p>So you can go from there.</p>

<p>IB scores does not affect GPA.</p>
