In addition to the honors and AP uptick, some school score an A as a 4.0 and A+ as a 4.33. So the grading scale is really a 4.33 grading scale, and not a 4.0 grading scale.I have not read the entire thread so apologies if this has been answered. The mother who is suing because her son was rejected said he had a 4.2 average. I thought 4.0 was the top number. Can someone explain?
My high school was messed up because the grades were no pass (<70%), pass (70-95%), and honors (96% and above). Try explaining to a college that your GPA was 4.0 or 4.33 because you got all "honors." And we had no AP or Honors classes because we had between 3 and 15 people in each grade. The whole grade, not just the class. My high school graduating class had 9 people in it.
