# How does an 82 Translate into GPA?

Hello! I'm somewhat confused as to how my grade, like an 82, gets converted into a GPA. Does anyone know how this conversion works?

Hello! The conversion from a numeric grade to a GPA can differ slightly depending on the scale used by different schools. But a common method is using a 4.0 scale, where:

- 90-100 translates to a 4.0

- 80-89 translates to a 3.0

- 70-79 translates to a 2.0

- 60-69 translates to a 1.0

- Below 60 translates to a 0.0

So if you have an 82, this would translate roughly to a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. However, please remember that this is just a simplified approach. Some schools use a more complex scale that might assign different GPA values within the same range, like 80-82 is a 2.7, 83-86 is a 3.0, and so on. Always check with your school or the particular college you're applying to, to understand their specific grading conversions.
