divide it by 2.5
Thing is, you don't really need to convert it to report your acads to the univs.. simply state how your system works and how you fared in it.. any implicit comparisons they will do..
But for the purpose of your own comparisons with, say, other applicants or current grad students, you can roughly use this formula - (your score / topper's score)*4
I think it is depend on your grade system. For example, I also have a 10 grade system in my home country, and when I applied to school in U.S. (undergradute). They convert for each single class you have taken based on this following scale
- 8 and above is A (and therefore equal to 4.00)
- above 7 is B (equal to 3.00)
- above 6 is C (equal to 2.00)
- above 5 is D (equal to 1.00)
- below 5 is F (equal to 0.00)
And with your credit hours, you can calculated you GPA in 4.00-scale. This is kind of tedious, but my U.S. undergraduate school did this, so I think it might help.
