 <p>How do you convert a grade point average in percentage form to the standard GPA out of 4 points? What would a 90 be? A 97?</p>

<p>90 is a 3.7</p>

<p>Our kids' HS calculates GPA by percentage while the local university where some of the HS students take joint enrollment courses gives letter grades. The HS converts joint enrollment students' university grades on the basis of A=95, B=85, C=75, etc.</p>

<p>i've seen so many scales, so i cant even figure out what standard is. someone told me a 90 is a 3.0? so confused.</p>

<p>An 80 is more like a 3.0.</p>

<p>does anyone know a standard chart?</p>

<p>I don't think there is one standard chart. This is the conversion our guidance department told us to use. I'm not entirely sure where the pluses and minuses begin, so that part is a guess:</p>

<p>3.0 = 85 B</p>

<p>3.1 = 86 B</p>

<p>3.2= 87 B+</p>

<p>3.3 = 88 B+</p>

<p>3.4 = 89 B+</p>

<p>3.5 = 90 A-</p>

<p>3.6 = 91 A-</p>

<p>3.7 = 92 A-</p>

<p>3.8 = 93 A?</p>

<p>3.9 = 94 A</p>

<p>4.0 = 95 A</p>

<p>Just go down from 3.0 to get into the B- s and the Cs, and Ds.</p>

<p>in addition ... the conversion should not be done on your overall average ... it should be done course by course and then averaged .... for example, here are couple students with a 91 average (I'll skip pluses and minuses)</p>

<ul>
<li><p>Using the overall conversion you'd get an A average so a 4.0</p></li>
<li><p>but say the individual courses are ... 89, 93, 89, 93 ... B, A, B, A ... the GPA is 3.5 ... this is the correct way to get to the GPA.</p></li>
</ul>
