This really depends on what GPA system the college employs. The most common GPA scale that colleges use would have a maximum high of an A and a GPA score of 4.0. However there are instances where some colleges use a higher GPA scale, with a maximum of 5.0 or even 6.0.

The acronym GPA stands for grade point average, and is the average of the student's grades across the whole term's subjects. Therefore, even if a student excels in Science, if they do poorly in English then their overall GPA down dramatically. A cumulative GPA refers to the average of all subjects across all terms up to a given point. The GPA system is employed in educational establishments across the US and Canada. 

A high GPA is very important for a student to attain; as it opens more doors in the future. If they are still at school then achieving a high GPA score allows them to pick from the best colleges and universities; higher education institutions use GPA scores as a means of assessing and comparing applicants.

For students who are already in college or university, it also still crucial to maintain a high GPA if they want to be considered for highly sought after jobs. Many leading companies will only hire candidates with a strong GPA, and will not even invite candidates for interviews if they lack this credential.

A higher GPA will likely get you ahead of the competition and translate into a much better start, and your career path will probably be longer and harder without that, although not necessarily...It should go without saying though just because you weren't a stellar student, does not mean your career is doomed - there are attributes that can be more important depending on what field your going into... You can calculate your college gpa through College GPA Calculator

With good grades you will have access to entry level jobs that require a certain minimum GPAs that won't be available to those who do poorly in school...I don't think anyone would argue with the fact that some of the best positions go to the best and the brightest, and what do employers have to go on other than a GPA right ? But with that being said, it makes more of a difference in some fields than others...For instance, in sales a hiring manager would probably place less emphasis on good grades than someone hiring for a physicist...In something like accounting with nearly 100% employment, maybe you won't be a serious candidate for the absolute best jobs, but should still come out with something pretty good...It is true that few years out nobody is going to ask "what was your GPA" ? --- but it can be hard getting your foot into the right doors without them... 

Believe me, life will be easier if you make good grades.

you are talking about 12th grade right? No one usually calls it the 4th grade of high school. Lol.
well anyways, GPA is out of a 4.0 scale--unweighted.
Some schools, like mine, weight GPA, so the GPA could be higher than a 4.0. They usually weight it beause of AP classes/honors/ etc.  I suggest  you GPA Calculator High School through this you get more results about CGPA Calculator .

Your current Grade point average could also be used to get scholarships on the net. The Net today may be very helpful whenever we discuss acquiring scholarship grants on the internet which is often useful for student.

If you want to determine the Gpa for college or secondary school you will see that there may be minimal difference.. Really the only stuff you should deal with here are the weighting as well as pointing values for any class.

An once again, always write the right GPA Calculator as soon as you submit an application for school, scholarship grant or in some other application where your own Gpa is needed.
