Students earn a 4.0 grade when they achieve either an A-plus or an A. They score an A-plus with a percent grade ranging from 97 to 100 and an A with a grade from 93 to 96. An A-minus is attained with a grade ranging between 90 and 92, representing 3.7 on the 4.0 scale. A B-plus is next down (87 to 89, representing 3.3), followed by a B (83 to 86, 3.0), a B-minus (80 to 82, 2.7), a C-plus (70 to 79, 2.3) and a C (73 to 76, 2.0). After C-minus comes D-plus (67 to 69, 1.3) and D (65 to 66, 1.0). Any score below 65 is an F, for which no credit is given.
