AP and Honors courses carry a 1.3 multiplier when calculating GPAs.
We have a 4.5 GPA scale.

my school is strange
0-100 scale. non regents level courses (the only classes that fall into this category are phys. ed, technology electives, and required courses like parenting and health) are multiplied by 1.0. regents-level courses (the non-honors level "real" academic courses such as math, english, etc.) are multiplied by 1.1. honors courses are multiplied by 1.2, and college level courses are multiplied by 1.3.

AP/honors classes get a full grade up.
IE - An "A" in a regular class gets 4.4 GPA, an "A" in an AP/honors class gets 5.4 GPA. For AP/honors classes only in my school, a 96+ final avg. (or 98+ avg. for each marking period) gets an "H" grade, or a 6.0 GPA. (w00t! I got one in chemistry for full year!)

My school weights only AP classes. AP grades are worth .33 more than regular grades, so an A- in an AP is weighted the same as an A in a regular class. We have a 4.0 scale and 4.0 is the highest you can go (even if you got all A's in every class and in AP's you can still only have a 4.0)

My school has the lightest weighting system ever. We have NO weighting until senior year (when you can finally take AP courses. Ap Courses are weighted with an extra .1 to the GPA. This means that a straight A student who takes every AP offered can graduate with a 4.01 weighted GPA

On a 4.0 scale, AP adds 1 point to your GPA & honors adds .5 to your GPA. The "real" grade still shows up on your report card (ie. a B in AP would be a 4.0, but still written as a B on the report card). @ my friend's school, they put the weighting right into the report card, so if it weights up to an A+, you would get an A+ on the report card even if it were really a B+.

We have a standard 4.0 scale. Honors and AP classes are both weighted with an extra point, so an A in an honors or AP class factors in as a 5.0 in your GPA.

4.0 scale. No weighting for any classes whatsoever. Thus, it's up to the teachers to know that they can't be harsh with AP students and can't be easy with regular students so that the wrong people don't graduate as valedictorians.

4.0 scale. Grades in honors or GT/AP classes are weighted if you get an A or B. Ie. in an honors class, an A (4.0) is a 4.5, but a C 2.0 is still a 2.0. Gt/ap are the same except a 1.0 raise instead of a .5 raise.
Note-our class percentile is our unweighted grades.

How DO you weight your GPA, anyway?
My unweighted one is 4.5 on a 4.5 scale. Anyone cares to help?
|By Smiley (Smiley) on Sunday, August 24, 2003 - 08:13 pm: Edit|
4.0 scale. .3 for AP class. A+=4.3
|By Ash (Ash) on Sunday, August 24, 2003 - 09:15 pm: Edit|
Ranks at my school are like this:
4 for fundamentals classes
5 for normal classes
6 for accelerated classes
7 for lower APs because you can't weight less difficult APs the same as higher level ones (eg. Physics 1 and Calc AB)
8 for honors and APs

My school doesn't do GPAs, only class rank. It's sort of confusing so I just drew a chart to help me explain it. There are three weights of classes: S-track, R-track and AP. S-track classes are weighted lowest and are normal non-college prep academic classes like Math and English, and most elective courses like Band and Cooking are also S-track. An F in an S-track course is worth one point, a D- is worth 2 points, and so on until an A+ is worth 13. College prep and honors courses are R-track. They are weighted one full grade higher than S-tracks, so an A+ is 16 points. AP classes are a full grade higher than R-tracks, so an A+ in an AP is 19 points. I think it's silly that my school doesn't weight honors classes higher than R-track, not to mention doesn't even do a GPA.
