Query Regarding GPA

by vivekjindal12@gmail.com » Sat May 23, 2015 1:46 am
Hi,

I am trying to register myself on mba.com for the GMAT exam. However,while creating the profile, system is asking for GPA. I am an Indian having undergraduate score in percentage (65.7%). What will be my equivalent GPA?

Thanks,
Vivek

Just a quick semi-related comment to say that most top American schools do not want grades converted when you fill out their applications - and also, people often mis-calculate when converting to the American 4.0 system. It's tough, because a 65.7% actually means something quite different at one Indian school compared to another (based on the grading style, competitiveness factors, etc.). Just be conservative with whatever you enter into the GMAT screen. The schools won't hold it against you if you have a too-high converted GPA here but it's always best to avoid such inconsistencies in the application process.

Here's an older post from the EssaySnark blahg related to this topic: https://essaysnark.com/2011/09/gpa-conversion-stress/

Good luck on your test!!!
