Everyone who said they had a 4.0 unweighted GPA, does that mean they got all A's or all A-range (A's and A-'s)?
|By Potaco (Potaco) on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 05:23 pm: Edit|
At my school (unweighted):
A = 4.0
A- = 3.7
So in order to get a 4.0 total, you'd hafta have all A's and no A-'s.

Not in my school, A- is still a 4.0. Pataco ur school does it like colleges.
|By Potaco (Potaco) on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 06:28 pm: Edit|
Hmm... alright, then I guess it just depends on what school you go to.

In my school, an A is a 4.0 and an A- is a 3.66. However, though I've had two A-'s my entire high school career so far, I still have a 4.0 UW GPA because an A+ counts for a 4.33 and I've had three of those...hmm, who knows? Maybe I have an UW GPA ABOVE a 4.0, haha...

@ my school an A- is 3.7 & an A+ is 4.3.

AT my daughter's school an A is an A and a B is a B and so on, whether there's a + or - in front of it. Honors courses do get an extra point. That's the system used by the UC.

Carolyn, not all honor classes. I go to one of the top public HS, and we are # 1 in people who take SATs.
I;ve taken honor english classes and honors trig, and when i checked my school on the UC system, it broke down whcih classes earn an extra point, unfortunatly, Eng and trig are not.
I live next to another public school that has all honor classes, but 90% of them are not given any extra points.
LAUSD has this BS where they have AE-academicly enriched classes and HP classes, and more than have half of them do not get anything.
THses kids work harder and don't get rewarded enough.
But more than half of public school classes are a joke, meaning getting an A is nothing. SO, i guess this evens it out in a way.

I'm kind of curious. What would be the GPA of a kid at your school if he NEVER gets a question wrong? Some schools would give the kid a 4.33 out of an unweighted 4.0, but i'm just wondering. Is this at all possible? (well,it probably is, but even the smartest people i know get a few questions wrong in something) Have you ever encountered such a student before? (taking all easy courses don't count)
|By Me1 (Me1) on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 09:08 pm: Edit|
At my school you can have an unweighted average of above 4.0 if you have all A's & A+'s (or more A+'s than A-'s to balance out). We only send out weighted GPA's though, so it doesn't really matter either way.
|By Tata (Tata) on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 11:17 pm: Edit|
what is an A. and what is an A-.?.?
In my school, A is 97 or above. and A- is 92 or above.
|By Rocksolid4 (Rocksolid4) on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 11:45 pm: Edit|
so how do i find out what my school does?
|By Kyle2004 (Kyle2004) on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 12:30 am: Edit|
an A is 4.0. Then for Honors classess they add an additional 0.04 right on to your GPA. Then for AP they add a 0.08 on. Last year's Valivictorian had a 6.0
|By Highschoolda (Highschoolda) on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 09:56 pm: Edit|
Damn your schools are weird. In my school they don't even do weighted GPA.
But, i think weighing GPA is a great indicator of who the smartest/ valedictorian should be.
|By Potaco (Potaco) on Sunday, August 31, 2003 - 11:10 pm: Edit|
Yeah, at my school we can't even get an A+, only an A. Even if you get over 100% in the class, you would just get an A. And we don't get anything added onto GPA for Honors or AP classes.
90-94% = A-
95-100(+)% = A
That's it. Nothing special at all.

Funny thing about my school we can get an A- but we can't get an A+.
