Hi all, I'm trying to figure out my unweighted GPA. Could someone give me a brief rundown of how the unweighted GPA is calculated? What’s the highest number it can go up to? Thanks!

Hi there! Unweighted GPA is calculated based on a scale of 0 to 4.0, where 4.0 is the highest possible score. The unweighted GPA doesn't take into account the difficulty level of the courses (such as AP or honors courses), so every class is treated equally. Here's a simple breakdown of how the unweighted GPA generally works:

- A+: 4.0

- 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: 0.0

To calculate your unweighted GPA, assign the corresponding point value for each of your letter grades, then find the average of these values. Divide the sum of your grade points by the total number of classes to get your unweighted GPA.

For example, if you took five classes this semester and got the following grades — A, B+, A-, A, and B, your unweighted GPA would be calculated as (4.0 + 3.3 + 3.7 + 4.0 + 3.0)/5 = 3.6.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck with your academic journey!
