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.
How is your schedule at the private school? Do you have semesters or trimesters or something else? If you have semesters, it could be possible you are looking at your GPA for each quarter (every semester has 2 quarters - at least where I'm from). Or maybe your school calculated a GPA for each year?
Regardless, @DebaterMax is correct. You'll typically have a weighted and unweighted GPA from your school. Colleges will receive both of these scores. Your school will also send colleges a "profile" with a bunch of information about your school on it. This will help colleges break down all the information they receive and can help them place your grades/gpa/class rigor in context. So even if you aren't quite sure which GPA is important the colleges you apply to will.
