What percentile does one have to be in to get a 3.5GPA?

I received a 95.2% for the semester and I only got a 3.0 for the class..Wouldn't this be a 3.5GPA for the class?


I believe the "A" actually goes down to an 89 in this particular class.

    That was a pretty good percentage. It looks fishy to me. I would ask the teacher/prof. Different teachers have a different scale of what qualified for a 3.5 and what doesn't. Good luck.

    Under normal conditions, A is usually given over the range of about 93-100%.

    When a curve is used in a given class, and that curve is "steep", the A range will shift and could go over a more narrow range, i.e.

    A could be something like 97-100%.

    A GPA of 3.5 doesn't mean too much unless we know whether A is set to 5.0 or

    4.0 and also whether there is an A+ grade given.

    It depends on the scale that your school is using and how many students and how much the class weighs I mean such (5 credits,4 credits)
