Hello, since UC does not look at 9th grade, could someone tell me what the middle 50 percentile GPA range is? Or is the GPA range listed in Collegevine the actual range when 9th grade is disregard?

Thank you in advance.

Wait, UC doesn't use 9th grade grades (I don't know the exact word in English)? Do you know any more universities that don't use them?

I am not sure... but I am pretty sure Stanford does not either

First, you will not get an answer because none of the 11 UC Colleges break down their GPA by grade or by 50% percentiles. If you research each of the common data sets for each UC campus they will have GPA broken down by what percentage is in each bracket.

Percent who had GPA of 4.0

Percent who had GPA between 3.75 and 3.99

Percent who had GPA between 3.50 to 3.74

Percent who had GPA between 3.25 and 3.49

Percent who had GPA between 3.00 and 3.24

Percent who had GPA between 2.50 and 2.99

Percent who had GPA between 2.00 and 2.49

Percent who had GPA between 1.00 and 1.99

Percent who had GPA below 1.00

Grand Total 100.0

Then they have a statistic like how many admits submitted GPA and what the average GPA was. For example her is UCLA for 2019/2020.

Average high school GPA of all degree-seeking, first time, first-year (freshman) students who submitted GPA: 3.9

Number of first-time, first-year (freshman) students who submitted high school GPA: 5,845
