Grades and Grade Point Averages (GPA)

Grades are assigned through application of standardized measurements rated by in letters (A to D), a range (example 1 to 6), a percentage of total number correct (example 70%), or as the number from of a possible total (example 50 out of 50). At predetermined set times through a school year, grades from subjects are averaged to give a Grade Point Average (GPA). The Cumulative Grade Point Average is the average of all grades over an educational life or specific for the total 4 years of high school.

What is your GPA if you have 3 As 2 A minus and 2 Bs?

If you use a 4.0 scale, then A=4.0, A-=3.7, B+=3.3, B=3.0.

If all of your classes are weighted the same (classes with labs sometimes count for more than classes without labs), then your number of quality points= (4.0x3)+(3.7x2)+(3.0x2). This equals 28.4. Divide that by the number of courses (7), and you have 3.63.

Do you need a good GPA to get into a good college?

Not necessarily. Often students who do not have very good GPA's find good opportunities at community and junior colleges. Each school has GPA cutoffs, but often the community/junior colleges will give you the chance to prove yourself that a 4 year school wouldn't. Transfer to a 4 year school is often an option after the community college.

Actually, it depends on your standards and how good of a college you want to go to. Of course, higher ranked colleges will have higher standards. If you plan on going to a great university, among the top in the nation, you should aim to get more than a 4.2 GPA (weighted) and an SAT Score of at least 2100 (New one). These are barely minimums these days, with such high competition. A guy I know that went to Harvard University and took 8 AP classes, received A's in every class he took, so a 4.0 GPA UNWEIGHTED. I do not know his weighted, though, but i would guess it to be higher than a 4.5. His SAT Score was a perfect, 1600 (old one) and he volunteered as a reporter for the local newspaper company (this tells you he writes really well). So, actually, you will need a high GPA to get into a top ranked Ivy League school, but if you plan on going to a decent school, aim for around a 3.5 GPA. You can never be sure if you are going to be accepted or not, so don't think "I have to get a 3.5 GPA" Instead, think "I have to get the highest possible GPA i can get" (Obviously, aim for a 4.0 GPA unweighted). For me? I'm aiming for a 4.2 weighted GPA and a 2000 on the New SATs.

Many state university's just require a 2.0 or being in the top half of your class. These are most certainly not Ivy League schools but decent Universities nonetheless.

Colleges don't just look at GPA. They look at extracurricular activities, extra classes you may have taken over the summer, Papers you have written and a lot more. GPA is important but its that and other things you have tht get you into a good college.

That depends on your standards. If a "good" college means Yale and a "bad" GPA means a 2.5, then you're not going to get in, sorry. There are some schools that are "open" schools that take any applicant with an SAT/ACT score above (insert school's requirement here). I can only think of one right now, which is Colorado Christian University. Also, schools don't look only at your GPA. Grades are the most important component to your college application, but there are many not-so-selective colleges that could be considered "good"

What GPA and SAT scores are required by a college like the University of California berkely?

Have you tried going to the web page for the college you are looking at and seeing if they have the requirements for admission posted somewhere on the web page. more than 1660

I'm not sure if you just meant a larger, strong institution like UW, or UW in particular, but I know that UW admissions is a highly heuristic process, particularly based on your application essay. Weak students with a penchant for diversity and a willingness to learn are often accepted over boring, but academically strong students. Generally speaking, a 3.5GPA and an 1800+ SAT are solid, but your essay will likely mean more in the midst of the flood of "good" student applications they receive each quarter. Mostly based on numbers. especially your gpa. around 4.0 if not, higher.

What is a good GPA?

3.0 is the standard starting point for a good GPA however it is always best to strive for something better so try to stick with at least a 3.5 if possible.

Many schools will not allow graduation, or will require special help like academic probation, if the GPA goes below a 2.5 or 2.0.

Is less than a 4.0 GPA enough to get you into an Ivy League school?

The idea that you need a perfect GPA to get into an Ivy League school is one of the biggest myths when it comes to college admissions.

Of course the Ivy League is looking for the best of the best of the best students. But GPA is not the only thing those schools are looking for. There are MANY students with perfect GPAs getting rejected from Harvard, Brown, Yale, etc every year. And there are also many students getting INTO those programs who have GPAs below a 4.0.


The Ivy League schools want more than just a perfect GPA and a perfect SAT/ACT score. They want students who challenge themselves, and students who engage in the world around them (outside of the classroom!) What does that mean?


Well, for one, it means that you should not choose all the easiest classes in school in order to maintain a 4.0 GPA. The Ivy League schools are going to recognize that instantly, and it won't do you aaaany favors.


At the same time, if you are taking all Honors/AP courses and spending 100% of your time studying in order to get perfect grades, that's not going to help either.


What you want to do is mix things up. Take those challenging courses AND get involved in activities OUTSIDE of school. That can be sports, it can be volunteering, it can be an instrument, it can be... anything! Find something you love and get involved. And don't do it just for the sake of your apps. Schools can tell that, too! Do it because you love it, because you enjoy doing it, because it is your passion and you get excited about it. When you go about it that way, you'll naturally get more and more invested in it, and you'll have a lot more to show for yourself when it comes time to apply to college. (And the schools really want to see who you are as a person and what you care about and all the cool things you've accomplished because it shows them what sort of community member you'll be when you get to campus.)


And while you're doing that, make sure to stay focused on school as well. But don't stress out if your grades aren't 100% perfect. Schools, especially those in the Ivy League, would rather see you challenging yourself and getting a B+ than coasting through high school and getting an A+.


At the end of the day, if you're targeting Ivy League schools you DO want to get that GPA as high as possible. Same with your SAT/ACT scores. But you should not devote 100% of your attention to getting a PERFECT score. There's a LOT more that schools want to see and focusing exclusively on scores is a bad idea.

What are the minimum SAT and GPA requirements for a decent American college?

Depends on your definition of 'decent'. A school ranked among the top 50 would generally require a score of around 2000, especially if you are looking for financial aid. In my opinion, schools look at GPA first and foremost to decide whether to admit you and SAT scores tip the scales and help them decide how much aid to give you. A good GPA and a decent SAT score gets you in. A good GPA would probably be anything above 3.5

Answer

Before you start searching, I would encourage you to decide what broad area(s) you are interested in getting employment when you graduate from college. Is it technical or liberal arts? Do you want to work in an industrial, government, or academic environment? Once you decide this, go see someone working in this area and ask them what college they would recommend. Once you identify colleges you are interested in, contact the college and request a description of their requirements. Of course, if you are still in high school, you should have a counselor who can help you with all of this information.

What does the acronym GPA stand for?

GPA Stands for Grade Point Average, which is a scale of grading.

A 4.0 would be in the 100 percent A area.

While it progresses downward to F grades, which would be extremely low. For example: a 0.3 would be in the F range, like a 0.67 would be. Hope that helps, you could also google it.

Is a 2.9 GPA ok for freshman year high school?

If that's your unweighted GPA, it's not bad, but try raising it as much as you can. The better your GPA is, the better chance you'll have of getting into the college you want. That GPA is close to a 3.0, which, when combined with good test scores, can get you a scholarship in some states. However, try your best to get to at least a 3.5.
