Good app for keeping track of grades? (student)

I'd like a Mac App that I can use to track my grades at university.

I know iStudiez Pro does this, but I'd like an app that only tracks grades (I use iCal to plan my time etc).

Thanks!

Do you just need to record them....as in Pages, or Numbers spreadsheet.....or....do some math with them? I would think a Numbers spreadsheet should do anything you need done.

Numbers would be great, but it would take forever to make a good spreadsheet. I'd need to weight all my units accordingly, use IF statements, conditional formatting, manually make all the graphs/charts etc etc etc.

Surely there's an app out there that does all this, but in a very simple way?

If Numbers would suffice, you could try to look for ready-made grade trackers on the web. Many people publish their templates for others to use freely.

Additionally, I use iStudiez Pro for recording my grades. It brings in iCal data so I still get that aspect while using the calendar entry option I prefer. iStudiez meets my needs for weighting, gpa averaging, homework tracking etc. The only issue I encounter is when I run into a course that uses points verse percentages for weighting.

So iStudiez Pro integrates with iCal?

So putting all my lectures into iCal will also mean it appears in iStudiezPro?

That's correct. On the iOS version I can even create iCal events from within iStudiez pro. I imagine it's the same on the Mac version.

Bento might be of interest. I remember seeing a template designed specifically for classroom use and grade tracking etc...Seems to integrate with Mac applications very well.

Found a link to a example template:

Brilliant. I'll give it a try.

Thanks for all your replies everyone!
