Hey guys! I'm just wondering, how do I know my unweighted GPA? I've tried looking online, but I'm still unsure about how it's calculated. Any advice or resources would be appreciated!

Calculating your unweighted GPA is relatively simple, as unweighted GPA is based solely on your course grades without taking into account the difficulty of the classes you took. Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. First, assign a point value to each of your course grades using the following scale:

- A = 4.0

- B = 3.0

- C = 2.0

- D = 1.0

- F = 0.0

Note that some schools may have a plus/minus system, in which case you would also assign values for A-, B+, B-, etc.

2. Add up the point values for all your classes.

3. Count the total number of classes you've taken.

4. Divide the sum of your point values by the total number of classes you took. This will give you your unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale.

For example, suppose you took six classes with grades: A, B, A, C, B, A.

Using the point value scale: 4.0 (A) + 3.0 (B) + 4.0 (A) + 2.0 (C) + 3.0 (B) + 4.0 (A) = 20.0

You took six classes, so: 20.0 (sum of point values) ÷ 6 (total classes) = 3.33

Your unweighted GPA would be 3.33 on a 4.0 scale.

Remember that each high school may have slightly different parameters for GPA calculation, so it's a good idea to double-check with your school counselor for the most accurate information.
