I am currently holding down a 3.0
"Its better to burn out than fade away"
college right now is 2.8 though maybe after this semester should be 3.0\
in highschool my GPA was 1.8, until my senior year I got 4.0 which brought it up to like 2. something. My senior grades were the only reason I was able to get into a 4 year university.

High School : 3.75
Since I am studying in Australia, we don't have a GPA system here, but I am a Distinction student, but I am getting better, from 75% overall to 78%-79% overall while working 15 hours per week.
4.5 which in the University of California system was a weighted 4.25 or something.
Mine was horrible. 2.6 in college (in the US). Didn't do high school in UK (where I'm from) and quit early. Part of what made it difficult for me was I couldn't take less classes/drop classes or I would have to leave the US. That made things very difficult for me. I ended up taking a lot of classes I probably never should have taken, and I bombed in them lol. It does make me feel very guilty honestly as a lot of those classes cost a lot of money. I've graduated now, but yeah, I do feel pretty shitty about my GPA and the money spent.
We don't have Grade Point Averages in the UK as far as I know. When I was at school, we had GCE O-Levels for 16 yr old, which became called 16+ then GCSE's. The next national exam level was for 16-18 yr olds called the GCE A-Levels. These were two year courses, but the OA was a one year intermediary between O and A levels.
GCE = General Certificiate of Education
GCSE = General Certificiate of Secondary Education
I found out, if you were unsuccessful in your exams for A-Level but still got some sort of grade, you could fill up vacant university places. The institutions took on students who went on to do quite well for themselves, so, one wonders if the change of location, different set of circumstances, and added motivation to do better as an adult is the key.
^ Did you get many Owls?
My high school didn't use a traditional grading system. I graduated college with a 3.95 gpa.
High school 3.8
University (still in progress so it might change) 3.7
Didn't use GPAs in high school but I had a 92 average. 3.92 in university at the moment. I'm an overachiever with no life in a prestigious school dominated by genius Asians. It's a hard knock life!
I later went on to do a BSc in Applied Physics and I have a Computational Physics MSc.
I have now forgotten most of everything I've learnt
I'm most proud of my B in French though.
Totally different system in France I'm afraid.
I'm holding a thought for quite some time now about a thread on the different education systems of Jubbers' countries.
Would it interest people if I started one, explaining the French system which is quite unique (and easily questionable by the way) ?
Anyway, the final exam in high school is known as the Baccalauréat. I passed it in 1987 with 14/20 (série C : meaning the scientific/math leaning one). Total rate of success this year (all séries >=10/20) : 75.8%. From those, 74.5% had >=10 and <12, 19.6% had >= 12 and < 14, 5.1% had >= 14 and < 16 and 0.8% had >= 16.
So I was in the top 4.4% of 1987 French students. I don't know at all how it translates as GPA.
Edit : ^Star, have you been able to do some things with your French ? Have you traveled in France ?

Damn you all are some smarty Mc Smarties.....
I am carrying a 3.58 in the courses I am working on now; 3.35 for my last degree....
In high school it was quite different, I would answer the questions easily but earn an automatic letter grade drop for not doing homework.... so i left with a 2.86.... bastards
What I hate about education is it does not equate to knowledge learned ... there is knowledge gained but the piece of paper is dependent upon hours paid for and successfully passed. There are exactly four classes different from my first business degree and my second business HR degree and yet i was forced to take 6 additional elective course to get that piece of paper. So in the end it is not about successfully demonstrated knowledge across a field but successfully paying for ten classes or 30 credit hours.
No what i am saying Hard Up is something maybe you are missing.
SO if a business degree is 120 credit hour and a Human Resources Business degree is also 120 credit hours.... and the course are absolutely and completely identical EXCEPT four additional classes for the HR degree then if it was entirely knowledge based after the completion of four more classes you would earn the academic knowledge award in the form of a degree indicating you have met all educational requirements for that second degree.
Yet at the school I attended they required I take not only those four classes but an additional six classes to meet a required 30 credit hours. It did not matter if the classes were on artful macro-may or underwater finger painting. Just that I pay for six more classes. So it is money based more than knowledge.
Hard Up I have been in four different schools as I traveled about... most have the same minimum requirements of hour to equate to a degree whether or not you have already completed those same knowledge requirements and hour at that school.
I would agree wholeheartedly... a degree has little to do with knowledge and much more to do with how much you are willing to pay.
As I've said, I ain't very bright. My IQ score suggests I probably wouldn't do well in school. But I managed to make up for in work what I lacked in smarts. I hoped to graduate high school with a 3.5 GPA...but didn't. I ended with 3.48. I hoped to graduate college with a 3.0 GPA...but didn't. I ended with 2.95. Still rather unhappy about both of those.
High School was 2.8
College is 3.8
I make my bed with the stars above my head and dream of a place called home.
High school was 3.75
Current college is 3.8

I feel like things would have been different with me had I a. not been an international student during my college years, and b. not started off as a computer science major (which I was talked into) during my college years. My GPA is lousy, and at the moment, until some laws in the U.S. are resolved, there is nothing I can do about it.
High School was an 86.26 unweighted average (my grade would jump a lot for honors/AP classes if I weighted them). Theology was the only class in HS I got Cs in.
Undergrad was a 3.37 GPA. I've griped about how my college had a huge gap for 3.3 (88) to 3.7 (92). They don't round your grades so if you got a 90 in a class, it would be a 3.3. I had an entire page on my DAS that was 3.3s because of that BS. My raw GPA would have been closer to 3.5 and therefore, I would have been cum laude which was 3.4.
Grad was a 3.73 GPA. It is true that most people do better in grad school than undergrad because you are taking classes that you actually enjoy.
I was in a special program, and weighted, we got a whole extra point, so I had a 4.6 in high school.. I used to brag about that everywhere.
