What Percent (%) is a GPA of 2.5???

Hey guys. I did a search and couldn't find anything..

anyways. I'm just wondering what a GPA of 2.5 is as a percent?
I've tried google and there are so many variations and I can't get a strait answer.
My school doesn't give me a GPA they only give me a cumulative Percentage so I can't even gauge myself.

Question;
2.5GPA = ___ %

i think 3.0GPA = 80%, 2.0 GPA = 60%, so would 2.5GPA = 70%?

Thanks.

2.5 is C+ in most schools


4.0 is an 80%+, some schools have a 4.5 for A+ some dont,
3.5 is 75-79 B+
3.0 is 70-74 B
2.5 is 65-69 C+
2.0 is 60-64 C

It could be different depending on schools

Ryerson GPA:

University of Toronto GPA:

York GPA (i'm not sure if it applies to all of York):

It be nice if everyone chose to stick to one standard. The difference between a 4.33 and 4.0 scale (Ryerson and U of T) are minor, but to use a scale of 9 seems so odd.

2.5/4 x 100 = 62.5 on a GPA 4.0 scale.

70% is a pretty good guess.

At UT a 67-69 is a 2.3 and a 70-72 is a 2.7 so a 2.5 GPA is probably somewhere around 70. I think UT is the pretty standard GPA out of 4. While I don't have first hand knowledge, I do believe some schools such as York and Ryerson (off the top of my head) use different GPA scales.

EDIT: Also, a 2.0 is 63-66 and a 3.0 is 73-76. A 60 is actually a 1.7 and an 80 is a 3.7

First thing to learn is that average percentage does not have any bearing on GPA.

Check your school's website. They should have an undergrad calendar somewhere that lists the grade scales and calculation for the GPA.

I think it'd be easier for you just to tell us which school you go to so we know which GPA scale to use.

2.5 should be around 68-72 for most cases.
