UGPA Calculation Question (special grading scale)

Postby Chloe111 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 8:05 pm

Hi, I have a question about UGPA calculation. The grading scale of my university is a little bit different. There's no A+, and the highest letter is A. Here's the grading scale:
A (85-100) 4.0
A-(80-84) 3.7
B+(75-79) 3.3
B (70-74) 3.0
C+(65-69) 2.7
C (60-64) 2.3
C-(55-59) 2.0
D (50-54) 1.0
F (0-49) 0.0
My question is if I get an A at my university, will it be calculated to UGPA4.0 or 4.33? Or it depends?

If it says an A on your transcript, it'll be a 4.0 for your LSAC GPA.

Based on the info that you provided, 4.00, but you may as well just submit your info to LSAC. The only reason to hold off would be if you have some ambiguities or mistakes that you could correct with the university before submitting, which does not appear to be the case here.
