Is there any way I can raise my GPA from a 3.81 to a 4.03 in one year? I’m going to be a senior and I’m currently taking 2 summer classes that are dual credit. I plan on taking more classes for college credit and I intend to graduate with the Indiana College Core. The high school I go to is based on a 5.0 GPA scale. I received a 4.24 my first semester as a junior and a 4.27 my second semester. I was at a 3.31 because my first two years weren’t too good, but I’m recovering my grades now. Please let me know if there’s a certain number of dual credit courses I need to take or anything that could help me out. Thanks :)
Hi, would you be willing to share how many courses you’ll be taking in school? With that information I can try to find things like the maximum GPA you can get, and what it would take to raise it to a certain number.
Edit with updated answer:
Thank you! Starting off your senior year with a GPA of 3.81 we can find a few numbers with the 16 credits you can earn during your senior year. In order to get a GPA of 4.03 or higher, you'll need a senior-year GPA of 4.66 or higher. If the dual credit classes will count towards your GPA then you should be good. Assuming you score an A in both courses, you could then take all on-level courses during the school year, having grades of 3 Cs and 5Bs, and still have a GPA of 4.05. However, if you’re able to score perfectly in all of your courses, you could end up with a GPA of 3.79. Alternatively, if the dual credit courses are not included in your transcript, you’d still be able to achieve this with one A and 7 Bs. Hope this helps :)
