A C- is the ninth highest grade on the U.S. high school and college grading scale ranging from A+ to F. A letter C- means satisfactory or average performance in a class. The '-' further refines the student's work as slightly lower than a C but better than a D+. A C- is a worse grade than a C.
The percent value for a C- is 70-72. This means that the student answered 70-72 percent of the questions correctly on tests or earned 70-72 percent of points on assignments. The C letter grade range (C+/C/C-) extends from 79% to 70%, so a C- is at the lower end of the C scale.
The GPA scale value for a C- is a 1.7 grade average. 1.7 grade points are assigned to classes when calculating GPA's using the unweighted 4.0 scale. Any GPA higher than 1.7 and lower than 2.0 is considered a C- average.
With a C- grade average there are not many selective, four year colleges colleges you can apply to and hope to be accepted. You are better off concentrating on colleges with open admissions or two year community colleges.
