Is a 2.0 GPA Good?

A 2.0 GPA is a full point under the national average, which is a 3.0 GPA. That’s not considered very good, but it isn’t as condemning as a GPA in the 1.0–1.9 range. If you work consistently, you should be able to pull it up above a 3.0.

For high school students

If you want to attend top tier schools, you'll need to bring your grade up a lot, at least to a 3.5 GPA. Even for less prestigious schools, a 2.0 isn’t high enough to be considered for admission.

For college students

Since most graduate programs require a GPA of at least 2.5, you have significant work to do if you’re planning on attending. A GPA of 2.0 indicates that you are not serious enough about your studies.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

A high GPA takes consistency and dedication. If you’ve got a few semesters before graduation, you can pull your GPA up significantly.

  • Focus on classes that are giving you the most trouble.

  • Ensure that you understand the material. Just because you complete assignments doesn’t mean you grasp the concepts enough for an exam.

  • Write out a schedule to see when you’ll have time to study.
