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 let’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 that’s having it be a 4/4.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’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.
