Understanding percentage to GPA conversion

Hi guys, I have an 83% average in my high school courses, and I'm trying to figure out my equivalent GPA on a 4.0 scale for college admissions. Can anyone help me with this conversion? Much appreciated!

Hello! Although different high schools and colleges may have varying methods of converting percentage grades to a GPA on a 4.0 scale, I can provide you with a general guideline.

Typically, any score above 90% is considered an A or 4.0, while an 80%-89% range is seen as a B or 3.0. Since your average is 83%, this would broadly translate to a GPA of around 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Keep in mind that colleges may also take into account factors like difficulty and rigor of your courses (whether you've taken AP, IB, or honors classes) while recalculating your GPA for admissions purposes. I recommend checking the admissions websites of the colleges you're interested in for their specific guidelines or policies on GPA conversion. Don't hesitate to reach out to their admissions offices if you have any questions.
