An A+ is the highest grade on the U.S. high school and college grading scale ranging from A+ to F. A letter A+ means excellent performance in a class. The '+' further refines the student's rating as higher than an A and recognizes students performing at the highest level. An A+ is a better grade than an A.
The percent value for an A+ is 97-100. This means that the student answered 97-100 percent of the questions correctly on tests or earned 97-100 percent of points on assignments. The A letter grade range (A+/A/A-) extends from 100% to 90%, so an A+ is at the high end of the A scale.
The GPA scale value for an A+ is a 4.0 grade average. 4.0 grade points are assigned to classes when calculating GPA's using the unweighted 4.0 scale.
The only way to achieve an A plus average is to get straight A+'s in every class. Since there is no grade higher than an A+, there is no way to offset any grade lower than an A+ with something higher.
Yes, the A+ range is between 97% and 100%, so a 97% is an A+. Congratulations on the good work.
