Hanna, your Grade Point Average (GPA) is a number that represents all the letter grades you earned while in high school. GPA tabulation begins by changing your letter grade into a number. In the traditional 4.0 scale, each grade is assigned a number from 0.0 – 4.0. Most schools also use “+” and “–” and letter grades, and this is often shown in the grading scale by adding or subtracting 0.3 points.

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR GPA • https://calculatorgpa.com/how-to-calculate-gpa

• A+ = 4.0
• A = 4.0
• A– = 3.7
• B+ = 3.3
• B = 3.0
• B– = 2.7
• C+ = 2.3
• C = 2.0
• C– = 1.7
• D+ = 1.3
• D = 1.0
• D– = 0.7
• F = 0.0

Each school sets its own grading scale for these types of courses. We recommend you contact your school administration office for more information on the grading system for your specific school. However, in most cases, when taking Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors courses, grades are generally weighted. For instance, a half point (.50) is added for Honors courses, and a whole point (1.0) is added to AP courses. In this example, an A then equals 4.50 for an Honors class or 5.00 for an AP class.

The decision to take an AP or Honors course is an individual decision that depends on each student’s needs. AP and Honors courses require you to consider factors like your past performance, overall course load, extracurricular commitments, and stress level. Also, students should consider the subject matters about which they are passionate and the subjects in which they have experienced success. Ultimately, students should assess themselves carefully and pick out an appropriate schedule based on their skills and motivation. Teacher recommendation is highly recommended for entrance into an AP course. Keep in mind that AP classes are considered college-level coursework and require good study habits and significant time commitments. Colleges want to see you work hard, succeed, and be well rounded. For some students, this includes taking AP or Honors courses, and for others it does not.

In high school your overall GPA is calculated by a scale with a letter equated to a number.
A=4.00
B=3.00
C=2.00
D=1.00
According to this scale you then are able to multiply the courses you take by the number associated with your letter grades in order to obtain a number. For example if I received all A's in 6 courses I would have a (4.00 x 6)/6=4.00 GPA. This is an unweighted GPA but often times AP or IB courses are counted as 5.00 so that is how you see many achieving GPA's above the 4.00 scale.

Hey Hanna,

Your GPA is your grade point average. Each course you take offers some sort of credit for how successfully you completed it. For instance, all courses should have the ability to reward you with 4 points (or an A). However, let's say that you didn't perform well, then you might only get 3 points for that course (or a B). Once you average up all of your points awarded divided by total opportunities, you will get your GPA.

Thanks,
Blake

Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) refers to the overall GPA, which includes dividing the number of quality points earned in all courses attempted by the total degree-credit hours in all attempted courses.

Your grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to a 4.0. To get the example student's GPA, the total grade points are divided by the total credit hours attempted.

To get the example student's GPA, the total grade points are divided by the total credit hours attempted. Please look below for how each grade is range from the 0.0 to 4.0 scale by the letter grades you get.
