I'm trying to calculate my GPA for my Brooklyn College application, but I'm unfamiliar with their GPA scale. Does anyone know of a reliable calculator or conversion method to figure this out?

Brooklyn College, like most U.S. colleges and universities, uses a 4.0 GPA scale. To calculate your GPA, you can follow these steps:

1. Assign each of your classes a point value based on the letter grade you received:

- 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

2. Multiply the point value of each grade by the number of credit hours for the respective class. For example, if you received an A- in a 3-credit course, you'd multiply 3.7 (point value for A-) by 3 (credit hours): 3.7 x 3 = 11.1 quality points.

3. Add up the total quality points earned across all courses.

4. Add up the total credit hours for all courses.

5. Divide the total quality points by the total credit hours to get your GPA.

Example:

- If you had two 3-credit courses, one with an A-/3.7 (11.1 quality points) and one with a B/3.0 (9 quality points), the total credit hours would be 6, and the total quality points would be 20.1 (11.1 + 9).

- You'd then calculate the GPA as follows: 20.1 quality points / 6 total credit hours = 3.35 GPA.

Remember that your high school GPA might be weighted if you took honors, AP, or IB classes. Colleges might recalculate your GPA to be unweighted, considering only the numerical value of the grades themselves. Make sure you review Brooklyn College's specific admissions requirements to see if you need to submit a weighted or unweighted GPA.
