Grading Scale

Hunterdon Central's grade scale is a modified 10-point scale, which includes “plus” and “minus” designations for each letter grade.

Final grades in all courses will appear as letter grades A+ through F. The GPA (Grade Point Average) for Honors courses will be awarded an additional weighting of .5; the GPA for Advanced Placement courses will be awarded an additional weighting of 1.0. Please note: students enrolled in an AP course who take the AP Exam will receive full AP weight for the course; otherwise, Honors weight will apply. Cumulative GPA and WGPA (Weighted Grade Point Average) for final course grades are tabulated and posted on student report cards and the permanent transcript record at the conclusion of each quarter. Please keep in mind that the majority of colleges recalculate GPA on a pure 4.0 scale. In the recalculation process colleges use the grading scale provided by the high school.
