How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
In order to determine your unweighted GPA without going through the trouble of calculating, I recommend using: https://gpacalculator.io/
On this website, you can adjust to use weighted or unweighted and can also calculate your cumulative GPA which is helpful in your later years of high school.
If you do not use letter grades and instead rely on percentages, the website also has a GPA scale in order to make conversions: https://gpacalculator.io/gpa-scale/
Also, if your school does not have A- or A+ and instead uses just an A it doesn't hurt your results.
What @nlwhite suggested is much better because then you get a full understanding of grades and calculating them, but I'll admit I'm a bit lazy. I discovered this website in order to mimic what my transcript would say and it helped out a lot!
Hi I am going to assume that you have a relatively traditional basic scale in terms of weighted classes. Getting your unweighted GPA will require a bit of math on your end.
Each classes is weighted the following:
A - 4
B - 3
C - 2
D - 1
F - 0
So figure out your letter grade from each class and assign the point value from above to them. Them just find the average by dividing by the number classes you have taken. Hope this helps!
