Getting to know how to raise your GPA

23 Oct 2018

During the admission to college or university, GPA is one of the essential things that have to be on the level. So what to do if your GPA score is not that good? Should you forget about getting the higher education altogether, or something could be done? The answer is yes, the situation is not hopeless, but you have to act fast and as soon as possible; time is a crucial factor here.

In order to understand how to improve your GPA you have to grasp this main point: if you got a lot of the credit hours, you also have to acquire a lot of credit hours with higher marks to raise the overall GPA. In the case when you do not have many credit hours, it is easier to improve the GPA score as it takes fewer extra hours to increase a total mark.

For instance, let’s imagine now you have 15 credit hours and an overall indicator of 2.7 GPA, so to raise the GPA to 3.3 it will take only one semester under the condition of all straight A’s. And now, let’s pretend you have 90 credits and an overall score of a 2.7 GPA and only 32 credits available before the end of the school; in this case even with all A’s and excellent academic achievements you would bring your GPA only to about a 3.0 mark, even with all those struggles. You see a pattern here?

Another vital issue is your science GPA. If for some reason, your science marks are much worse than all other grades, the situation is even worse, because it means that your science GPA will be lower than cumulative one, and this might be an unfortunate surprise no one wants to receive. Many of the applicants to colleges and universities find out right at the admission that their general GPA level is acceptable, but a science GPA is below the admission point, so they cannot be accepted to medical schools and many health-related programs.

Here is another instance of a similar problem. Let's say that you are at the end of your freshman's year first semester with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and 15 credit hours. You did a satisfactory job, but strive for more and change your ways, so after the next three semesters you improve your studies and productivity, get good grades, mostly A- in average in many of the classes with your GPA risen to 3.7 during this time. Counting that you have 45 credit hours with 3.7 GPA, you graduate the second year of your High School at a 3.5 GPA in total. If you really focus and maintain the same level of academic achievements for two more semesters, the junior year will be marked with a GPA around a 3.6.

As seen on the examples above, everything depends on the time you have decided to take action and improve your school performance. The indication point is a junior year – unfortunately, if your GPA is very low by this time, the chances of significantly improving the overall grade is very low and almost non-existent. So in order to get into a university of your dreams, you have to think in advance and get your grades straight before it is too late.
