What's the GPA for an A- on the 4.0 scale?

I’ve been working really hard this semester and I got an A- in one of my classes. Just wondering, how does that grade translate into my GPA on a 4.0 scale?

Hi there! It's great to hear that you're putting in so much effort into your studies! Typically, on the 4.0 GPA scale used by most high schools, an A- is often calculated as a 3.7. However, it can vary slightly depending on the policies of your particular high school or college, as some institutions may use a different scale or give an A- a slightly different value.

For the most accurate information, it would be best to check the grading system your school uses, which is often found in the student handbook or school website. Also, don't forget that while GPA is essential, colleges do consider the rigor of your courses and overall trends in your grades. Keep up the hard work in your classes, and it will pay off!
