This is an incorrect response, your max. unweighted cumulative GPA maxes out at 2.28 if you already have your junior grades in hand. Sorry for getting your hopes up.

If you have a 2.0 GPA that means that you have 3 years or 6 semesters of grades on your high school transcript. Or at least 5 semesters if you haven't received your Spring grades for 11th grade yet.

That means you only have 1, max. 2 semesters of grading left in your college career. The maximum GPA you can attain prior to applying for college by the end of the year is ((6x2)+4.0)/7 = 2.28 unweighted if you get a 4.0 straight A during the fall semester. If you get a 4.0 this Spring and 4.0 this Fall, then your max unweighted GPA can be a( (5x2.0)+8)/7 = 2.57

I don't know why the other respondent said you could end up with a solid 3.0. This is not mathematically possible in your time frame.

Unfortunately, your unweighted GPA is not going to increase more because you take advanced classes (AP, Dual Credit, IB, etc.). However, I suggest taking advanced classes offered at your school to improve your weighted GPA. Also, if there was a reason for your lower GPA, let colleges know on your application. Try to do the best you can in all your classes Senior year to raise your unweighted GPA. Good luck 👍
