On a 4 point scale A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0. If, however, there are weights (honors, AP, IB, etc...) + also count towards a .5 point weight, so a C+ would be a 2.5 . If the system weighs the grades, plusses add no weight to the grade, so an unweighted C+ is a 2. This seems to be the case for most 4 point GPA systems around the country...

i always believed that a C was 2 points and a + was 1/3 of a point, so the googled result you got was correct

At my good ol Univeristy of Pennsylvania we have the following grading scale:

A+, A: 4.0, A-: 3.7
B+: 3.3, B: 3.0, B-: 2.7
C+: 2.3, C: 2.0, C-: 1.7
D: 1.0
F: big fat foot in your ass

At first I wondered why we didn't give out D+s but I doubt they're that's necessary since you're doing so crappy anyways. I'm sure Harvard isn't the only school that uses a different scale, so you GPAage may vary.

What is the C+ business?

At Georgia Tech you've got five options:

A: 4.0
B: 3.0
C: 2.0
D: 1.0
F: Goodbye with a big fat foot in your ass

in my school's system i think this is how they do it for weighted grades, but I could be wrong.

For honors, you times the number grade by 1.2
For AP, you times the number by 1.3

So if I have a 98 in a regular course
An 88 in an honors course (105.6 adjusted)
And a 82 in an AP (106.6 adjusted)

Those are my grades, so I have a 103 average (woohoo).

OK I guess I am wrong but what the heck does a 1.20 quality point grade mean?

People got what the GPA is but remember the weight of classes is the most important so dont sacrifice and A ina 3 credit class so you get a A in a 1 credit class because a three credit A is worth 12points and a 1 credit A is worth 4 points

in my school a b+ is 3.4, b is still 3 and b- is still 2.7. It's nice to have that extra .1 on a b+

bottom line - your gpa will only help you if you're shooting for grad school; otherwise, it's how well you comport yourself in your job interview and how much you know about what you "learned..."

It varies depending upon schools and locations but every school I have attended determined that a C+ was a 2.33. However, I've seen it as a 2.5 and in other cases a 2.67. It depends if the school has a plus and minus system and if the school weights the GPA based upon the course load and the type of class taken.

Most places don't have that partial point stuff, although I suppose it sort of makes more sense. It doesn't seem logical that a C+ would be 2.5, since a B- would have to be the same thing for B to equal 3.0. If you ignored minus grades, that would be kind of inconsistent with recognizing plus grades. It follows then that the +/- are worth 1/3 of a point, so that C = 2.0, C+~=2.33, B-~=2.66, and B=3.0.

yeah, I never heard of a pluse being worth .5, Over here at USC + == +.3 and - == -.3 so a C+ comes out to a 2.3. Not that it matters, there going to fuck you or not on completely random and unrelated shit anyway. Do I seem bitter? I'm trying not to be bitter.

Gee...my school does it very...differently

Honors classes are weighted on a 5.0 scale. "Regular" classes on a 4.0. ALL GPAs are based upon the 4.0 scale. Therefore, I graduated with a 4.3, which is above an A+. But, the standard is this:

A+= 4.0
A = 3.67
A- = 3.33
B+ = 3.0
B = 2.67
B- = 2.33
C+ = 2.0
C = 1.67
C- = 1.33
D+ = 1.0
D = .67
D- = .33
F = Go home

Where I come from a C+ is worth 2.33. And with grade inflation as rampant as it is here, if you're catching these you need to go home as well.

At a certain Baptist school that's been in the news lately;
A 4
A- 3.5
B 3
B- 2.5
C 2
D 1
F 0
Therefore, if it was above a 2.5, you were usually doing alright, but to keep a scholarship, you had to keep a 3.0, which sounded easy, but was accomplished by very few. That's probably the case with this guy's honor's college. They fought hard against grade inflation, which was great those with academic inferiority complexes, but sucked for everyone entering job market/ other schools

College

If I have about a unweighted GPA of 3.65, and get an ACT score of at least 27, what are my chances of getting into good colleges, like University of Michigan?

for some fields that's true. For others, grades mean everything. I know one guy who won't hire anyone with a lower than 3.5 average.

This is what I don't understand about using the GPA scale. Why is there no 3.4-3.6 or 2.4-2.6? I don't get it. What's the point of using a scale from 0-4 if you're not using all the numbers in between? (ok not all the numbers, all of the numbers to the tenth decimal place)
