# Is a A+ with a 100 more than a A+ with a 97?

• Alex299792458
In summary, the conversation discusses the calculation of GPA using letter grades and the question of whether all A+ grades with different percentages would yield the same GPA. It is clarified that GPA only reflects the letter grade and not the actual percentage.

I looked at my report card and saw the g.p.a. was calculated with what letter grade you get(All AP A+ = 5.00, all AP A = 4.6666, all AP A- =4.3333, etc.) but g.p.a. stands for grade point average which is the score in your grade like a 94 is A, 97 is A+, 92 is A-, 71 is C-, etc. so if it averages out by points would a all 100's yield a higher g.p.a. than a all 97's even though there both a A+?

no.

Nope. An A is an A, an A+ is an A+ etc.

The actual percentage plays no part in calculating a conventional GPA.

## 3. Can a student with an A+ and a 97 still receive a higher overall grade than a student with an A+ and a 100?

Yes, it is possible for a student with an A+ and a 97 to receive a higher overall grade than a student with an A+ and a 100. This would depend on the weighting of the assignments and exams in the overall grade calculation.

## 4. Are there any differences in the way an A+ with a 100 and an A+ with a 97 are perceived by colleges or employers?

The advantage of having an A+ with a 100 over an A+ with a 97 may vary depending on the specific situation.
