How To Use The GED Score To GPA Calculator

Disclaimer: This calculator is intended for entertainment purposes only! There are too many variables involved to ever convert your score to a high school GPA with 100% accuracy!
That being said, if you’ve ever wished you could equate your score to a high school GPA, this tool will give you a great idea of what it would be in theory!
- Enter your GED test score for each section after the equals sign in each row except for the last row.
- Each time you enter a score, the score should appear in red right after the row.
- Once you’ve entered a score into each of the 4 rows, your estimated GPA will appear in red beside the last row
- Please leave the last row unchanged! It contains the formula that the calculation is based on!

What You Should Know About The GED Test Scoring
There are 3 levels of scoring. These 3 levels are:
1. 145 – 164 Scores: Pass / High School Equivalency
2. 165-174 Scores: College Ready
3. 175-200 Scores: College Ready + Credit
Scores below the level 1 range are not passing scores; 145 is the minimum score you’ll need to get in each section to pass!
Scores in the level 2 range demonstrate college readiness, and may make you eligible to skip certain placement tests and remediation programs when you enroll for a university degree.
Scores in the level 3 range are the best because they indicate you’ve probably already mastered some college level material.
You may be eligible to earn college credits for a level 3 score, depending on the college.
School Seniors GED® Test Average Score Estimated National Class Rank
The official testing service website provides data that allows you to estimate what high school class rank your test score corresponds to.
If you’re a little confused on what this means, basically, everyone who graduates from high school will have a class ranking.
The top students will be in the top percentile, while others will be in lower percentiles. For instance, if a student graduates in the top 10% of their high school class, this roughly means that they performed better than 90% of the other students at their high school.
Here’s the data:
Note that test scores are shown first on the left, followed by the class ranks on the right.

Why This Matters
To confirm whether or not a GPA given to us by the calculator is accurate, we can compare the given GPA to the class rank the score corresponds to.
Suppose a student’s test scores for the 2014 test are as follows:
Social Studies: 146
Language Arts: 155
When we plug these number into the calculator, we can see that his approximate GPA is a 3.155, which rounds to a 3.2.
Now, if we add all of his scores together and divide by 4 (because there are 4 sections), we find that his test score average is 157.75, which rounds to 158.
According to the class rank estimate data, his score puts him in the Top 46%. A 3.2 GPA falls between a B and and B+ average, and it makes sense that a student of this caliber could be ranked in about the top 46% of their class. Therefore, his estimated GPA makes sense!
