    Grade Point Averages are on a 4.0 grading scale. The above grading scale is used to determine the grade points for each credit course. EVERY grade on the transcript is figured into the GPA. Only courses that are designed as PreAP/AP receive quality grade points. To calculate the GPA, divide the total number of grade points by the total number of grades on the transcript.

     
     
     
    How to Compute an Unweighted GPA

     

    An unweighted GPA does not assign different points for grades in different levels. An “A” in honors, is assigned the same number of grade points as an “A” in the recommended level.

     

    For a 4.0 unweighted GPA, assign 4 points for each A. Assign 3 points for each B. Assign 2 points for each C. Assign 1 point for each D. Assign 0 points for each F.

     

    Add up all the points and divide by the number of grades given. Include all grades for F.

     

    Mark the number of As __________________________ x 4= ________________

    Mark the number of Bs __________________________ x 3= ________________

    Mark the number of Cs __________________________ x 2= ________________

    Mark the number of Ds __________________________ x 1= ________________

    Mark the number of Fs __________________________ x 0= ________________

     

    Add the number        + ___________________________

    of grades

     

    Add the number of points                                                         + _________________

     

    Divide the number of points by the number of grades             __________________
