# How can I calculate my GPA for application to Bentley?

I have recently been looking into applying to Bentley University, and I want to figure out my GPA according to their system. Does anyone know how Bentley calculates high school GPA's or if there is a specific calculator I can use to have a better understanding of my chances? Any advice would be appreciated!

Bentley University, like most U.S. colleges, typically calculates high school GPAs on a 4.0 scale. The scale assigns a numeric value (ranging from 0 to 4) to each letter grade you receive in your courses, and then the overall GPA is calculated by averaging those values. Weighted GPAs take into account the difficulty of the courses, such as honors, AP or IB classes, by adding extra points for those courses.

Here's a quick reference for the basic 4.0 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

For weighted GPAs, you might add 0.5 points for honors classes and 1.0 point for AP or IB classes. However, each high school might have its own system for weighting GPAs.

You can use online GPA calculators to help you determine your unweighted and weighted GPAs. CollegeVine offers a free GPA calculator, which supports both unweighted and weighted GPA calculations. Simply enter your grades and the type of classes you took (regular, honors, AP, or IB) to calculate your GPA.

Keep in mind that Bentley, like many institutions, also considers other academic factors, such as course rigor, class rank, and extracurricular achievements. Calculating your GPA is just one way to gauge your chances of admission, and you should also focus on submitting a strong application overall.

Good luck!
