Percentage to GPA
I studied in India. I got 89.2% in my Grad, and 82.89% in my Under Grad. How should I calculate the GPA?
I found many ways on Google. Couldn't trust any of them, all of them give me different answers.
Hey @n-priyanka89! The reason is because there are different interpretations. Most schools have their own standards that they use from experience over the years, but many use the WES as a guide: https://www.wes.org/gradeconversionguide/
Each school will interpret it slightly differently and most won't ask you to translate it. One thing to do that will help the school is to provide comparative perspective. Were you top 10%? Top 5%? How competitive was your school? Help them understand where you stood w/r to school strength and positioning.
I hope that helps.
