How To Use the 5.0 GPA Scale Calculate
The 5.0 GPA scale is a bit more complicated, which is why we have come up with a 5.0 GPA scale Calculator to help you calculate your Weighted GPAs in just a few minutes.
To calculate your 5.0 GPA scale, follow these 3 simple steps below:
1 Input your course Name
This is optional but recommended in order to identify your grade, which belongs to each course.
2. Select Your Grade
To start calculating your 5.0 GPA scale, you need to select your current grade. To get your grade, you can ask your teacher or check your noticeboard to find it.
Grades can range from an A+ to an F. For each course, choose a letter grade from the drop-down menu.
3. Input Your Credits hour
Then you can now input the credit hours for the course you want to calculate. For example, if you have earned ”A+ or A” 5.0 for a 4-credit-hour course, then input 4 in the box next to the GRADE.

How to Calculate a 5.0 Cumulative GPA

After that, your cumulative 5.0 scale would be displayed on the overall GPA.
Why a 5.0 GPA scale? Over a 4.0 GPA scale
Most high schools report GPAs on a 5.0 scale instead of a 4.0 scale. So, a 4.5 GPA on a 5.0 scale is equal to a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. You can see the 5.0 GPA Scale chart below.
Some high schools use a 4.0 scale, however, because most colleges use a 4.0 scale.
While other high schools report GPA on a 4.0 scale, they give extra grade points to students who take more difficult classes, such as Honors, Advanced Placement (AP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes.
For example, some high schools add 0.5 points to a student’s grade for taking an Honors class and 1.0 points for taking an AP or IB class.
5.0 GPA Scale Chart
The 5.0 GPA scale chart below is converted by adding.5 to the honors GPA and adding 1 to AP/IB grades, which makes it count for the 5.0 scales.
This would mean a B in an AP class is equal to an A in a regular-level class for your GPA.
By Looking at the 5.0 GPA scale chart below, you can understand more about the calculations.
