Hey there! I want to know my unweighted GPA, but my school only provides a weighted one. What's the best way to calculate the unweighted GPA? Thanks in advance!

Hello! Calculating your unweighted GPA can be quite simple. The unweighted GPA is usually calculated on a 4.0 scale, disregarding any extra weight given to Honors or AP classes. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you figure it out:

1. List your courses: Write down all your courses and their respective grades.

2. Convert your letter grades into numerical values: Assign each letter grade a number according to the standard grading scale:

- A (90-100) = 4.0

- B (80-89) = 3.0

- C (70-79) = 2.0

- D (60-69) = 1.0

- F (0-59) = 0.0

3. Sum the numerical values: Add up the total numerical values for all your classes to obtain the overall sum.

4. Calculate the number of courses: Count the total number of courses you've listed.

5. Divide the sum by the number of courses: Take the overall sum from step 3 and divide it by the total number of courses from step 4. This will result in your unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale. Remember to round the result to two decimal places for accuracy.

For example, if you have earned letter grades A, B, A, and C in four classes, your unweighted GPA would be calculated as follows:

- Convert letter grades to numerical values (4.0, 3.0, 4.0, 2.0)

- Add numerical values (4.0 + 3.0 + 4.0 + 2.0) = 13.0

- Divide the sum by the number of courses (13.0 / 4) = 3.25

So, your unweighted GPA would be 3.25. Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions!
