Calculating GPA for a 90% average?

Hey everyone, I'm not really sure how to convert my percentage average to a GPA. Can anyone help me figure out what my GPA would be if my average is around 90%?

Hey there! Converting a percentage average to a GPA can vary depending on the scale used by your high school or the colleges you're applying to. In general, a 4.0 GPA scale is most commonly used in the United States.

Here's a rough conversion using the standard 4.0 GPA scale:

- 90% to 100% = 4.0 (A)

- 80% to 89% = 3.0 (B)

- 70% to 79% = 2.0 (C)

- 60% to 69% = 1.0 (D)

- Below 60% = 0.0 (F)

If your average is about 90%, you would likely have a GPA around 3.7 to 4.0, since it's on the lower end of the "A" range (assuming it's on a 4.0 scale).

Keep in mind that different schools and countries may use different scales, so it's essential to confirm with your guidance counselor or specific college's guidelines to get an accurate conversion. Additionally, weighted GPAs are sometimes used based on the difficulty of courses taken (e.g., AP or IB classes), so that could also affect your calculated GPA.
