Why Weighted GPA is important

Weighted GPANot all courses are considered equal. There are some where workload is at its minimum, and there are others that you spend hours and hours studying for, reading book after book, similar to trying to find the missing link between two theses. As the amount of work is not equal, neither should the grade be considered equal. This is where Weighted GPA (Grade Point Average) steps in. Weighted GPA is a distinct method in which you actually calculate a total average of your grades, depending on the course. For example, the final grade in AP mathematics can’t be considered the same as the final grade in a standard math class. If you get a B in AP mathematics, its weight/importance exceeds a B in a standard course.
If you are in high school, and you’re planning on taking AP classes, make sure they are in a subject that interests you, otherwise, Weighted GPA won’t be of much use for your College application since the final grade won’t be as you planned. It’s always easier to learn about something that you care for.
