"What do I need to make on my remaining tests and assignments in order to get an A in this class, given the grades that I've already made so far?" Our college grade calculator was created to answer that question! We created this tool because every semester, students crank up their calculators in pursuit of the answer to this elusive question on their final grade. It's easy to make mistakes, though, especially if you have tests and assignments that are worth different percentages of the total grade. Well, now you can save your calculator for math classthis amazing grade calculator will tell you exactly what you need to make in order to get the grade you want! If you use the tool and find it useful, please consider sharing it on Google, Twitter of Facebook using the social buttons to keep this site free. You can also bookmark this page for future use. Good luck with your exams! 

Step 1: Enter your scores First of all, list the grades you have received so far. Enter the grades you have received into the left column; in the right column, list the percentage that each grade counts toward your final average. For example, if you made a 95 on your first test and it counts 20% of the final grade, you would type 95 20 in the first row. Do not type percent signs in the right column; this will confuse the program. Of course, the numbers in the right column should not add to more than 100, since you cannot possibly have received more than 100% of your total grade. There is room for you to type 20 grades and their corresponding weights. An example is available if you need help. 



Step 2: Enter the minimum final average needed for each grade
In the blue table, enter the different letter grades offered in the course (such as A, B, C, D) and the minimum final average required to receive each grade. Enter the letter grades in the left column and the corresponding required averages in the right column. For example, if you entered A 90 this would mean that your final average must be at least 90 in order to receive an A; 80 in order to receive a B; 70 in order to receive a C; and 60 in order to receive a D. Enough space is provided for you to enter eleven different letter grades, which should provide ample room for schools with plusminus grading systems. 



Step 3: View your results!

@amathteacher: When you have 5 modules, each with differently weighted coursework and exams, it’s a lot easy to use this. I am more than capable of banging hundreds of numbers into my calculator, but why waste the time?
Thx for this website! Takes away the hassle of manual labor, lol.
It is amazing these high school and university students cannot do a simple percentage problem to calculate their grade, and need a dedicated website for that.
Maybe if the education system(or teachers cough cough) would actually teach properly instead of paying more attention their weekly income, students might be able to learn a thing or two.
You obviously don’t know a teacher personally or you wouldn’t have made the remark that they pay attention to their weekly income… teachers don’t get paid enough for what they do.
ALSO, to the person who said that the teachers need to do their job, you obviously know nothing about the legal system that is controlling the school, teachers included! The government has hired people who have NEVER taught a day in their lives to write curriculum and standardized test.
Please give the teachers a break. They work hard to teach people like you everything they can!
Sincerely,
A TEACHER!!!
Kiara,
Respectfully, do you really think that I want to sit down and figure out my grade with paper, pencil, and a calculator after a hard week of finals? I see that you are a math teacher (so you claim) and being as such, you should have a little sympathy for those who are where you were. Remember where you came from, not where you are. I am a 27 year old serving in the military while completing a degree in accounting. There are some out there that are going to college under circumstances that you and I cannot fathom. Relax, ease off, and KCCO.
Comment was not meant for Kiara,
Sorry for misreading. The “math teacher” is whom this is targeted at.
In fairness why would you want to spend 10 minutes doing something that take you 2 minutes with the tool? Also, with this you can track your grades and update it easily, send to email etc.
Who says we all can’t? I COULD set up the percentage problem if I wanted to, but for classes where there’s a lot of assignments or assignments that count for weird percentage numbers, it’s definitely a lot quicker and more convenient to use a tool like this than it is to use a calculator and risk a bad keystroke.
For example, the class I’m using this has 4 tests that are, in total, worth 85% of the grade, and 21.25% per test is a bit more annoying of a number to work with than, say, a multiple of 5 or 10.
Heck, using your logic, why in the world does anyone use a calculator these days for anything using the four basic operations? 522/9 can be done in less than a minute using long division, can’t it? And why are all these accountants so reliant on their calculators, anyway? All they’re doing is addition and subtraction, right?
You know what’s also amazing?? How you found yourself randomly on this site. And I am SO glad you did. I would much rather do all of my calculations free hand to ensure no one would think that I was inept at calculations because I used a computer program. “Work hard, not smart.” …wait
We CAN do it. But why would We want to work harder and do it by hand than work smarter and use a tool that is provided for us? Personally, I’d call it using the time and resources we have available to us wisely. And as we all know, extra time isn’t exactly something a working college student studying for finals has in abundance.
This was very helpful!! I know no its almost impossible to get an A in math. lol but thanks!
This is a fantastic site! I only wish there was an option on here to calculate in if your class offers replacing your final exam score with a low exam grade, since a lot of my classes do that.
Hey just wanna make sure,
in the “score” category are we supposed to put the percentage we scored or the actual mark (example. 50% or put the 25 from “25/50″) ?
Thanks :’) so much stress relief tbh, if i did it correctly otherwise i am screwed lol ! :/
LOVE this site. I have been using it for a few years now. I was super upset when the site closed down for a while. So yeah, I have 2 suggestions. The first one isn’t really a big deal, but still thought I’d mention it: the default letter grading is weird. Before, it was perfect. A 90 was an A, and an 80 was a B and so on. Now there is A+at 90, and an A at 80, and so on as default. It’s no big deal. One can easily change it, but I’d still like to bring it up. Second, I would LOVE it if one was able to add decimal places to both the grades and the percentages of grade. For ex, a class w only 3 tests, all weighted equally, each are worth 33.33%, and not the 33% that I’m able to enter. An 84.65 on a test is different than an 84, or an 85, and each are different in 33% of the grade average, or 34% of the grade average. Whether you change these things or not, thanks for making this site. It has saved me from countless hours of worrying.
Thanks Jonathan, we appreciate your comments and will make the changes!
I’d like to second both suggestions that Jonathan made. I’m a teacher who frequently uses this site, and encourages my students to do likewise. I’ve been hoping you’d return to the A=90, B=80, C=70, D=60 standard, and including decimal places would help my students get a more accurate understanding of their grades. Thank you for making this awesome resource.
I know right? It’s truly a Godsend.
I love this website, with high school around the corning and report cards coming momentarily I wanted to ensure I had good grades:) I will definitely use this ALOT in high school next year!
I just got my final grade fractions for Physics and I couldn’t wait for them to post the final grade being that this is the one course I need to graduate college in May and I’m terrible at physics. If I did this right I passed without the curve being applied and I’m a new fan of this calculator. I will be using it next semester for all my courses so I can stay on track and try to make the deans list for the first ever ha (longshot)!
If this were an app, I’d pay for it. Such a sanity saver during the week after finals.
Hi
I’ve really enjoyed this calculator, but I have one minor suggestion:
The default grade cutoffs don’t seem to be representative of how colleges typically do it. I think something along the lines of the following would be more accurate.
A+: 97–100%
A: 93–96%
A: 90–92%
B+: 87–89%
B: 83–86%
B: 80–82%
…
Honestly, so many schools differ in their grading systems. I go to a university where they don’t have +/ just A, AB, B, BC, D, and F. If the percentages listed here don’t match the ones for your school, just manually change them!
I don’t disagree; it’s certainly true that there is considerable variation in grading scales. That said, however, you missed the overall point of my post: Some scales are more common than others, and the current defaults do not represent the majority of colleges. If you don’t believe me, just do a little research — I’m sure you’ll quickly realize that the grading scale I suggested is much more common.
Regardless, I still enjoy this great calculator!
I second this!
What school do you go to? lol I bet no one ever gets an A+
Actually, I wouldn’t reccommend that.. My local community college did it that way but a lot go by the 10 point system… so
A 90100
B 7089
C 6970
ETC…
Thank you so much! This really helps me be more aware of my grades and not have to worry about the unknown as far as my grades are concerned. One suggestion I have is that you might make the design more aesthetically pleasing and have a slightly improved functionality with the “Calculate” button; it’s rather annoying that I have to scroll down after pressing it. I really like this website, though, and I will continue to use it whether you change it or not.
I love this website and have been using it for years. It’s just not easy to use on my phone. Y’all should look into making an app!
This is the best device I have ever seen. Every single semester I am worrying because I have a 80ish percent and am stressing out because if I got a certain grade I will fail the class. NOT ANYMORE!! This awesome device allows me for now on never stress of my grade. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
Just discovered this website and it’s already helped alleviate some stress… THANK YOU!
this is the bomb
Hey! thank you so much for this calculator! its awesome so I showed it to my roommate, she loves it too. Trying to figure out grades and gpa and such can get very stressful, but with this its easy to figure out where I am in school.
But there seems to be a problem with logging on. For one, I can’t seem to find a “log in” button, the only way I’ve been able to log in is through the red “Register Here” banner, which doesn’t go away after I’ve logged in. But I love being able to put to save my calculations! The other online gpa calculators don’t have that ;P
All in all very good calculator, the site just needs a tune up
Thanks Candice. We have been having some teething issues but will address your valid points asap.
Great! I love the new tracking system! But is there any way to name your calculation if you save it? It’d be nice to do multiple calculations for different classes in a short time frame and not have to remember at what time you did which calculation.
I love this website so much! But could you guys please add an extra grade slot? It says that there’s eleven, but I can only but 10 letters Thanks for the help!!!
This is top of our list. Thx for the comment Dee.
please add point system grade option
Thanks! this helps and makes it easy
Hi is there a way to create more slots for the grade inputs?
Hi Kes, this will be implemented this week
thx
not sure if you can add more slots but you can just average grades that hold the same weight. For example: if you have 3 exams each worth 15%, add all the test grades together and divide by 3 and enter the resulting number as having a weight of 45%….does that make sense?
Grade: %
90 15
87 15
93 15
= grade of 90 worth 45% of your grade. Takes a little simple math on your part but the outcome is the same. Good luck with finals!!!

Can you change the percentage if it is different than what they have.
Hi Rita, yes certainly, we encourage you to check on the % your course has but we just put those in as a default option. Thanks
You should have an option for “total score” in each column!
So if that assignment was “98/200″ then we could have a column to type the “98” and another column for the “200”.
Thanks Judy, i am going to see what we can do with that, appreciate the feedback.
If it is not already out there, have you thought about making this into a mobile app?
Hi Aaron, we have just made the app will be on the site within 7 days. Thanks
Amazing Grade Calculator, you are amazing.
This is awesome.
I always use this website, thank you very much.
Thanks Alex, anything you can suggest to improve it please let us know
LOVE THIS WEBSITE. So helpful, thank you!
Thanks Camilay
I have used this website for about 2 years now and its amazing!!!
But suddenly it is not working.
More specifically, after I enter all of the numbers the “calculate” button doesn’t work.
I am running OS Yosemite on my macbook pro.
Thanks David, will get this looked at today
Thanks, it’s working again
It’s possible that it was working all along, because I just noticed the box that holds the results. (Shows how too much studying can make you lose focus)
maybe it’s just me, but I feel like there is a lot to read/see before I get to the actual results. Which may be why I missed it.
No probs, we couldn’t find the issue. By the way we are launching our free tracking facility within the next week so worth checking back
How about adding in an extra credit button? :DD Great website. Thank you.
Not a bad idea Ashley we will look into that for you
Have used this for years! So great and tells u exactly what u need with remaining assignments
Thanks Rhashida, we are about to add a tracking capability so you don’t have to come back and enter all the same details again
Great system
Great Tool! Thanks for creating it
thank you
