Is a 1.6 GPA Good?

A 1.6 GPA is a far cry from the national average of a 3.0. A GPA of 1.6 is universally considered low. If you commit yourself seriously to your studies, you may be able to achieve a solid GPA.

For high school students

Most likely, a college or university will not give a second look to an application with less than a 3.0. Though GPA isn’t the only thing these institutions care about, having a 1.6 GPA will probably be a deal breaker.

For college students

Graduate programs usually require a GPA of at least 2.5. If you plan to attend such a program, you may need to take extra classes to boost your GPA, especially if you are near graduation.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

A high GPA isn’t built overnight. If you’ve had a rough start, there’s plenty of time to fix your GPA. All it takes is consistency and commitment.

  • Don’t just work to complete assignments. Use assignments to deepen your understanding of the material.

  • Ask your instructor for feedback and critiques of your work.

  • Be diligent about turning in work that is complete and on time.
