Is a 1.3 GPA Good?

A 1.3 GPA is far behind the national average GPA of 3.0. Such a low GPA will not be looked on favorably. To raise your GPA, focus on areas in which you are struggling, and don’t take unnecessary courses you predict will be a challenge.

For high school students

If you are planning to continue your education after high school, you need to raise your GPA by several points. Most institutions require a 3.0 to even apply for enrollment.

For college students

If you plan on attending graduate school, a 1.3 GPA simply will not cut it. You’ll need a solid GPA to show you are serious about your studies.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

You need to take drastic steps to raise your GPA. Request extra work from your instructors, be assertive in ensuring you grasp the material by studying on your own and participating when in class.
