# What is a weighted GPA out of?Answered

Hello,

I'm confused as to what my weighted GPA is taken out of. For unweighted, it is taken out of a 4.0. However, the weighted GPA can go higher than a 4.0 due to AP and honors classes, so is it still a weighted 4.0 or will it be 5.0? My school lists "weighted GPA 4.0" next to the GPA but I've heard that since it can go higher than a 4.0, the total would be 5.0.

I would appreciate any clarification!

So letâ€™s say you take all AP and honors classes and they are both weighted the same. You get all Bs in them. You have a 4.0/4.0. If you have half As half Bs you get 4.5/4.0. So you likely have Bs and thatâ€™s having it be a 4/4.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if youâ€™s like clarification as Iâ€™d be more than happy to help!

For Unweighted its 4.0 but for weighted is 5.0. So yeah what you heard is correct. Its a 5.0 weighted because of added APs/ Honors classes. They add more to your gpa then regular classes.

Itâ€™s still x/4.0
