Frequently Asked Questions

A Grade Point Average (GPA) is a calculated average of the grades that you earn at school. It can be calculated by single courses over time, for a group of courses (e.g., STEM), for a marking period, by school year, or for an entire high school career. The traditional GPA scale range is from 0.0 to 4.0.

GPA and Standardized Test Scores are very important metrics that admissions officers take into consideration when reviewing college applications. GPA is a measurement of your academic excellence and your willingness to challenge yourself academically. Low GPA can effectively eliminate you from the admissions process at a very early stage. Your GPA is used to calculate your class rank which shows how your performance compared to other students at your school.

Schools use different Grading Scales. Traditionally, the most common one has been a letter scale (A – F). MyKlovr GPA calculator offers you a choice of seven Grading Scales. It converts each of them into the 4.0 scale that is used for GPA comparisons.

Advanced courses like Honors, AP, IB, etc., are more challenging than regular ones. Therefore, both schools and colleges assign them higher importance when calculating GPAs. For example, a B+ from an AP course is not equivalent to a B+ from a regular course. Most commonly, an Honors course will earn you an extra half grading point (0.5) on a 4.0 scale, and an AP course an extra whole point (1.0), when compared to a regular course.

Your Unweighted GPA is a simple average of your course grades. Your Weighted GPA takes into account the types of courses you have taken (i.e., their difficulty level) and adds extra points for advanced courses before being calculated.
Example:

CourseCourse typeGrade (4.0 scale)Extra grading pointsAdjusted grade
MathRegular4.04.0
EnglishHonors3.00.53.5
US HistoryAP3.01.04.0
ChemistryRegular3.03.0
Unweighted GPA3.25
Weighted GPA3.63

Colleges often evaluate your GPA using their own formulas. Some of them will disregard so-called “easy A’s” which are your grades earned in courses like music, PE, and arts. Instead, they will focus on core academic courses like English, math, social studies, and science. MyKlovr GPA calculator only considers these core academic courses when establishing your Academic GPA. Your Overall GPA however, included all your courses.
Example:

CourseGrade (4.0 scale)
Math4.0
English3.0
PE3.0
Theater3.0
Overall GPA3.25
Academic GPA3.50

Your marking period GPA is your Grade Point Average for that term only. Your Cumulative GPA is your Grade Point Average for all the marking periods that you have entered. You can use your Cumulative GPA to calculate:
– Your year-to-date GPA (e.g., for the Fall and Winter terms only)
– Your school year GPA (All course grades for all grading periods of a school year.)
– Your to-date, or entire high school GPA (Grades you have entered for many years of high school.)
