How do I convert a 4.0 scale GPA to a 100-point scale?

Hi fellow students, I've calculated my GPA on a 4.0 scale but I need to convert it to a 100-point scale for a specific scholarship application I'm working on. Does anyone know what the process is for converting my 4.0 GPA to a 100-point scale, or is there a tool I can use to do this? Thank you!

Hi there! Converting a 4.0 scale GPA to a 100-point scale can be done using a general formula, although it's important to note that different institutions might have varying conversion methods. That being said, a common formula for converting your GPA looks like this:

100-point scale GPA = (4.0 scale GPA - 1.0) x 25

For example, if your 4.0 scale GPA is 3.8, you would do the following calculation:

(3.8 - 1.0) x 25 = 2.8 x 25 = 70

So, in this example, your 100-point scale GPA would be 70. Keep in mind that this is just an approximate conversion, and individual schools and organizations might have specific conversion methods which you should adhere to if provided.

As for a tool you can use, you may find online GPA converters which can do this calculation for you. Just be cautious when using these tools and double-check their sources, as the accuracy may not be guaranteed. If the scholarship organization you are applying to provides their own conversion scale, it's best to follow that method. Otherwise, you can use the formula provided above as a general guideline.

Best of luck with your scholarship application!
