Is a 3.1 GPA Good?
At 3.1, your GPA is just above the national average GPA of 3.0. However, it’s still considered an average GPA. To get even further ahead of the pack will take diligence and hard work.
For high school students
Colleges and universities will look favorably on a 3.1 GPA, but they’ll also take into account extracurricular activities and your standardized test scores.
For college students
Most graduate programs require a GPA of 2.5 or higher, so a 3.1 is more than sufficient to apply to a graduate program. However, you’ll also want to put emphasis on the essay portion of the application, if there is one.
How Can I Raise My GPA?
Maintaining a high GPA is a matter of consistency. Raising your GPA into an exceptional range will be tough, but you can do it.
Study for tests far in advance.
Complete assignments thoroughly and to the best of your ability.
Study and work with other students who are performing well in class.
