Calculate high school GPA?

Hey! I've been trying to keep track of my high school GPA, but I'm not sure how to do it properly. Does anyone have a method or tips on how to accurately calculate my GPA? Thanks a lot!

Hello! Calculating your high school GPA is quite straightforward, and the method can vary based on the grading scale used by your high school, such as unweighted or weighted GPAs. Here's a general method for calculating both:

1. Unweighted GPA: This type of GPA is calculated based only on your letter grades without factoring in the course level (e.g., honors, AP, or IB).

- Assign a value to each letter grade: 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, F = 0.0

- Divide the sum by the number of graded courses to get your unweighted GPA.

2. Weighted GPA: This type of GPA considers both the letter grade and the course level, adding extra points for honors, AP, or IB classes.

- Assign a value to each letter grade as listed above.

- For each honors, AP, or IB course, assign additional points (usually +0.5 for honors, and +1.0 for AP or IB) to the respective grade points. You should verify the exact additional point values your school uses, as it may vary.
