How does an A- factor into a 4.0 GPA scale?

Hi! I'm trying to understand how an A- factors into my GPA on a 4.0 scale. I know an A equals 4.0, but would an A- be considered a 3.7? Just hoping someone can clarify, thanks!

Hi there! You're correct that on a 4.0 unweighted GPA scale, an A typically corresponds to a 4.0, and an A- is typically considered a 3.7. However, keep in mind that different schools and institutions might have slight variations in their grading scales. It's always a good idea to double-check with your specific school or institution to confirm their particular grading system. I hope that helps!
