What's a C+ in a 4.0 GPA scale?

I recently got a C+ in one of my classes, and I'm wondering how that translates to a 4.0 GPA scale. Thanks in advance!

On the traditional 4.0 GPA scale, a C+ typically translates to a 2.3 GPA. Here's a general breakdown of letter grades and their corresponding GPAs:

- A: 4.0

- A-: 3.7

- B+: 3.3

- B: 3.0

- B-: 2.7

- C+: 2.3

- C: 2.0

- C-: 1.7

- D+: 1.3

- D: 1.0

- D-: 0.7

- F: 0

Keep in mind that individual schools and teachers may have their own grading scales and systems, so it's always a good idea to check with your school or teacher if you're unsure about how your grade is calculated.

Additionally, some schools incorporate weighted GPAs to account for the varying difficulty of courses like AP or honors classes. In such a case, a C+ in an AP course, for example, might hold more weight than a C+ in a regular course. Be sure to consider your specific school's grading system while evaluating your performance.
