Is the GPA on the chancing profile out of a 4.0 scale or a 5.0 scale?Answered
I provided my GPA on my chancing profile out of a 5.0 scale but I feel like the information is off when I am looking through college statistics. should I have entered it out of a 4.0 scale?

4.0 scale. The chancer asks for unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale. So if you have a 3.8 unweighted GPA but a 4.6 Weighted, put the 3.8. Course rigor is a separate metric that is also used.
So,The answer your question will be simply if the scale is 5.0 it means that the GPA is Weight which means it's considering AP,IB,Honors and Dual credit classes which if they are dual credit and AP they give you a 0.50+ while if they are IB an Honors they count as I.00+.However, if its Unweighted means it's not counting those classes and the scale its 4.0.
Additionally,most college use the Unweighted to have an equal opportunity to everybody and to overall have a better idea of how are you doing at those classes.
