calculate gpa highschool

Hey everyone, I'm a bit confused about how to calculate my high school GPA. I know it's important for college applications, so I want to make sure I get it right. Does anyone have a method or tool they recommend for calculating high school GPA?

Calculating your high school GPA can be a little confusing, as different schools use different scales (weighted or unweighted) and methods. However, I can guide you through the general steps to calculate an unweighted and a weighted GPA.

Unweighted GPA:

1. Assign each of your letter grades a corresponding value, usually on a 0-4.0 scale: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0.

3. Divide that total by the number of classes you've completed.

4. The result will be your unweighted GPA, which is typically between 0 and 4.0.

Weighted GPA:

To calculate a weighted GPA, you'll need to consider the course levels of your classes (e.g. honors, AP, or IB courses).

1. Assign each of your letter grades a corresponding value based on your school's weighted scale. Your school may add 0.5 points for honors classes and 1 extra point for AP/IB classes. For example, an A in an honors class might be worth 4.5 points, and an A in an AP/IB class might be worth 5 points.
