I found this forum in a Google search, so, apologies if this question has been asked before, but I was unable to find the answer I need using the topic search feature.
I am trying to figure out what my GPA might be today using the old GED scoring system?
I am applying for grants, scholarships, etc., to take an online computer course through a University, (not entering college full time), and they all request a GPA.
I took the test in 1992 and the "Average Standard Score" shown on the certificate is 59.0.
There are "standard scores" and "percentile rank" shown for each of the 5 subjects:
Writing skills: 64/92 (standard score/percentile rank)
Social studies: 62/89
Interpreting Literature and the Arts: 58/79
(Total score is 295?)
I was going to study at home using the "GED On TV" program back then and they sent me a "pre-test" to participate, but when I took the pre-test they told me I did not need to study and to go ahead and take the actual test. A letter I received at the time told me that my scores were pretty high on everything (except math, but I did pass on the first try!)
If anyone can shed some light on the old scoring system in relation to GPAs, I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks!
