- Some questions frequently asked by houseowners : high school gives no letter grades or gpa?
♥ hey, so my high school gives no letter grades (a, b, c, etc.) and no gpa as a result. instead, we used e, m and dm (exceeds, meets, and does not meet). i think this might be a problem when applying to college. my high school keeps saying that we create portfolios of all of our worksheets and projects to replace the standard system. i'm worried that colleges will throw the application right out the window because they don't understand it, or they may just not trust the way things were graded. please answer if you came from a school with a similar situation, or if you work in the admissions departments of any college. in summary: no standard grades or gpa, different grading system, worried wether it'll all work out.
