# How Do I Determine My GPA From My GED Score It Was A 56 Out Of A Possible 85%?

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.

I got a score of 528 on my G.E.D. Would that be a gpa of 3.1?

When you get a GED, you do not have a Grade Point Average. A grade Point Average is only possible if you have taken all of the required high school credits. If you are looking for it for application to University, only your GED score and your SAT or ACT scores are required. Not all universities accept GED students. You can check on their website at, Admissions, Undergrad, Requirements.Here are GPA Calculator through which you determined your GPA from GED Score.

Here is GPA: An A is 4, B is 3, C is 2, D is 1, F counts for no credit. These are averages and 4.0 is the highest. To give you an idea, what you call a 2:1 Bachelors translated to a 3.5 GPA. But the schools that you apply to will take the marks that you have earned and calculate it for you, so don't worry about it. So GPA (Grade Point Average) is just that, your overall average score from school. The GED is in place of an American diploma, in America you can drop out of school and take a hard test, is you pass you get a GED, which essentially counts as a diploma. You do not need this either. All you need is the SAT/ACT, some schools want an SAT, some want an ACT, that is the only one of these three that you need to worry about.

I really hate to be the one to break this to you but NO. NO you can not go to most 4 year colleges with a GED unless you scored very high on each section. To be a bit more realistic Harvard and Yale is just out the question. I believe that you should dream big and chase your dreams. However, I also believe that you should dream realistic and with common sense. Do not get discouraged just go to a community college then transfer to a 4 year college and get your degree. This is the best advice I can give you. Good luck and I hope this helped.

I see well congratulations on being accepted into the University of Idaho that is great. I think you should just finish up your degree there. LOL sorry I didn't read your whole question and I understand now. I still think Harvard is a bit much but it doesn't hurt to try. Keep up the good work and chase your dreams nothing is impossible. I suggest  you GPA Calculator High School through this you get more results about CGPA Calculator .
