Is a 1.0 GPA Good?

Considering the US national average GPA is a 3.0, a 1.0 is far below average. Generally, a 1.0 is considered a dismal GPA. Raising a 1.0 GPA to an acceptable number is extremely difficult, but possible with diligence and determination.

For high school students

This will be a red flag for any educational institution. You will need to raise your GPA to be considered for continuing your education.

For college students

Most graduate programs require at least a 2.5 or a 3.0 to even apply. If you have completed an internship, or if your GPA is high within classes concerning your major, there is a slim chance you may be accepted somewhere.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

Frankly, you’re in trouble with a 1.0 GPA. To raise it, you need to complete future work on time and to the best of your abilities, and be selective about what classes you take in the coming semester.

  • Step away from extracurricular activities as much as possible to focus on your studies.

  • Ask a classmate who is performing well to help you study.

  • If possible, take classes you feel you could perform well in when selecting courses for next semester.
