Is a B GPA Good?

The national average GPA is a B, so that’s exactly what your GPA is—average. With a little work, you can raise your GPA to be downright impressive.

For high school students

To stand out among your peers, don’t just focus on raising your GPA. Extracurricular activities and standardized test scores matter to college admissions boards.

For college students

A B GPA is sufficient to apply for a graduate program. However, you’d do well to consider your options in the workforce, as well.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

Raise your GPA a little at a time. It takes diligence, hard work, and patience, but a notable GPA is certainly possible.

  • Be meticulous about your work. Just because you’ve completed the bare minimum doesn’t mean you’ve done all you can.

  • Make studying a daily discipline.

  • Get one or several classmates together to study in the weeks leading up to a test.
