To convert your GED to a GPA, divide your total score by the number of sections on the test you took. Most students are tested on five sections of the GED. For instance, if your total score was 2300 and you took five sections, your average GED score would be 460 (2300/5 = 460).
Do your best to match up your average GED score to an estimated GPA below:
GED Score Estimated GPA
Below 300 = 0-1.0
300-400 = 1.5-1.9
401-500 = 2.0-2.9
501-600 = 3.0-3.4
601-700 = 3.5-3.7
701-800 = 3.8-4.0
From the example above, an average score of 460 would be equal to about a 2.6 GPA. If you don't have any section value or total score, then contact your university/college from where you took course. Some colleges have their own methodology of calculating GPA.
Thats crazy.... That would mean I have a 3.5 - 3.6 gpa.... I got a 624.... You know what I'm not going to complain seeing that my hs transcript says my gpa is a 0.2
I got a 580 so what exactly would I want to put down for college applications
My score is 598, would it be correct to assume my GED score is more along the lines of 3.4? Does anyone know if this is good enough for med school when paired with the same or above GPA from college (pre-reqs)?
