GPA stands for Grade Point Average. How that average is figured or used, I don't know.

AnswerGPA is an acronym for Grade Point Average.

It is used in high school to determine student rank. Colleges use it to determine if they want to allow students to attend their college. They may have a minimum GPA requirement for a student to be accepted. The better the GPA the better grades were in school.

It is figured by giving a score to each of the letter grades. A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, and F = 0.

Example: A student has the following grades for one semester of school.

A, A, B, C, A, D, F . You would add the scores for each of the letters grades which would be 18 points and divide it by how many grades were given (in this . case 7). 18/7 = 2.57. The GPA for this particular semester is a 2.57.

Colleges like to see the higher GPA's like a 3.5 or better. A GPA of 4.0 would mean all A's.

The number of A's in a 2.50 GPA cannot be determined without more information, but since a 2.50 is between a B and a C, there would probably be more B's and C's than A's. A's would probably be rare in that GPA, unless there were also D's and F's that brought the GPA down.
