Did you have +'s and -'s?

Or just A, B, C, D, F? What was the scale?

I've also heard of schools where your class averages are all combined into one number.

When I was in HS, it was just A thru F, 90-100 on down. Semesters broken into two quarters. Each quarter weighted 40% and a final weighted 20%.

i heard they changed mine to have +/-. Seems to make more sense, and makes an 88 hurt less, but straight A-F seems credited for non-strivers.

marks out of 100

all ur subjects were combined into a single university addmission index score (also out of 100 but curved) which determined what university courses you could apply to

A= 5

B= 4

C=3

D = 2

F= 0

Add .5 for honors

Add 1 for AP

No +/- which made it super easy to coast. 89.5% was as good as 100%.

Out of 100, with 4 quarters each graded equally. Shit was annoying, I think I always had like a 95 average but there were faggots who strove their way to like 100s, which you needed to seriously care about to get.

mine gave actual number grades (95, 88, etc) that they converted to a gpa. I don't know exactly what the methodology was but I'm pretty sure I was screwed over by it.
