    bigduke, this is not meant towards you but towards the link you referred in the earlier msg.

    It's weird. So Universities that inflate %ages in 90's have students with really high GPA's.

    Wink Re: Percentage to GPA conversion

    Ok I'm confused.
    Allow me to quote a part of the text..
    (A rough equivalence of the percentage score multiplied by the GPA can be got as 4x x/85. For example, if your percentage score is 75, it is roughly equivalent to 4 x 75/85 =3000/85 = 3.53)

    Ok so what if the percentage was 95%?

    4 x 95/85 = 4.47

    Hmm...

    And what if the percentage is 85%?

    4 x 85/85 = 4.0 woooooo, perfect GPA!

    Am I having one of those retarded math days or is the info given by that site bogus??

    Re: Percentage to GPA conversion

    bnm,

    Don't convert the % to GPA.

    When I was aksed (asked) for my GPA, I wrote down my percentage, and under it I wrote:
    *GPA system not supported in my school.
    They get the hint.

    Re: Percentage to GPA conversion

    No need to mention GPA on online application too.

    Before I applied to Alberta I asked those earthlings and they told me write my total marks not percentages if I don't know my GPA

    Best thing is to drop a mail and ask the Uni........that way there will be no confusion.
