Calculating Your Semester G.P.A. TWHS calculates your G.P.A. on a 4.0 scale: TWHS does not use “+” and “-” when calculating your grades. In other words, an A- is actually calculated as an A. B+ is actually calculated as a B, etc. Q3 (40%) + Q4 (40%) + Exams (20%) = Semester grade..5 credit classes are weighted more than.25 classes. AP courses are on a 5.0 scale. A = 4.0B = 3.0C = 2.0D = 1.0
