Hi piyush1512,

You shouldn't worry too much about filling out that 'field' - Business Schools will look at your transcripts from School to evaluate your GPA, not the number that you enter when scheduling for the GMAT. As such, you can take a reasonable guess (or use an online tool to estimate the conversion).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

To imply that that wouldn't matter in an adcom's review is irresponsible. Of course it matters. Everything matters. The adcom will notice it. They may not hold it against a candidate but they will certainly wonder what's up.

Reporting your GPA when registering for the GMAT

@piyush1512, it's a good question, and Jeremy gave you the conversion tool you should use.

@Jeremy, maybe you can raise these concerns with your teams? The GMAT has gotten increasingly test-taker-friendly but this is one point that still causes unnecessary stress and potential for issues.

This is great insight. I will definitely inquire about this as we continue to look for more test taker-friendly improvements.

Thank you, and please keep the feedback coming.
