46 GPA Weighted GPA AP and Honors course add an extra point A = 5 points B = 4 Points C = 3 Points D = 2 Points F = 0 Points

47 GPA Academic Performance Colleges look at both the unweighted and weighted GPA Each college has their own way of viewing the GPA reported by Maranatha

48 Rigor Academic Rigor Colleges take into account how challenging a student s course work is This is demonstrated by Taking more years of core subjects Taking more AP and Honors courses
