# How do you equate the 4.0 grading scale to number grades?

well, say you are taking 12 hours. You have two 3 hour courses, one 2 hour course, and a 4 hour course.

so you have

2

3

3

4

then, say you have your grades in. (I will choose randomly for example purposes)

2 ---D

3 ---C

3 ---B

4 ---A

Well, at most institutions, the grading scale is as follows:

A=4.0

B=3.0

C=2.0

D=1.0

F=0

Then you multiply

2 x 1 = 2

3 x 2 = 6

3 x 3 = 9

4 x 4 = 16

You then take the total of the sum of the objects of the rightmost column, which in this

case, is 33, and you divide that number (33) by the total amount of hours you are taking (which would be 12 in the example), and your grade is 2.75 on a 4.0 scale.

That's the reverse of what you were asking, i believe, but this message will give you some extra insight on the 4.0 scale.

On a 4.0 scale with 4.0 being the highest, it would be a letter grade of A.

With 4.0 being the highest, it would be a letter grade of B.
