Beginning this year all high schools in North Carolina will be on a 10 point grading scale.  Under the new scale grades and grade point average calculations will be applied as follows:

Letter Grade Grade Range QPA
A 90-100 4.0
B 80-89 3.0
C 70-79 2.0
D 60-69 1.0
F <59 0.0

The new quality points standard will provide an additional .5 quality point to Honors courses and a 1.0 additional quality point to Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate courses, community colleges courses, or four year university or college courses taken in high school.

PLEASE NOTE:  New standards for quality points will take effect for the ninth graders in the fall of 2015-16 and all students entering high school after that year. This quality points change will not affect students who will be in grades 10, 11 or 12 in 2015-16.
