## D letter grade and 1.0 GPA

A 66 percent grade is a D letter grade. A letter grade D means less than satisfactory or below average performance in a class or on a test. Any percentage score in the 63-66.9 range is a D on the grade scale table.

A 66 converts to a 1.0 GPA. All percent grades 63-66.9 are in the 1.0 range. GPA is determined from a percent grade by consulting the GPA conversion table.

## Is a 66 a D or D+?

A 66 is a D and is one percentage point below being a D+. The cutoff for a D+ is a 67 minimum. However, teachers may sometimes give students the benefit of the doubt and round up to a D+. This is especially true if your percentage is a fraction above a 66, like a 66.5, 66.75 or 66.9. If the D is rounded up you would benefit from an additional 0.3 grade points in your GPA calculation.
