GPA scale 9.0=>4.0?

Post by witten_high_pitch_voice » Fri May 05, 2006 6:10 am

The University I attend uses GPA out of 9.0 as following;
A+ = 9
A = 8
A- = 7
B+ = 6
B =5
B- =4
C+ =3
C =2
C- =1
So how can I convert it to scale out of 4.0 as in US?

There are many different opinions on this such as;
1. (my gpa)/9 * 4
2. regard A+ same as A and do same calculation since US don't have A+
3. No need to convert it since each individual university has different rules

opinion#3 is not helpful because some University demand us to state GPA (scale out of 4) on application form.

SO! WHICH IS CORRECT METHOD???????????????????????????

some schools do have A+ grades, but most that I've come accross do not. Probably the easiest way would be to take any A's you have as 4, B's as 3, and C's as 2, then calculate your total grade points (by multiplying the number of units of A's by 4, then B's then C's and adding) then divide by the total units.

It is annoying figuring out all these various GPAs, and it is never clear what classes should be included, especially freshman/sophomore level courses.

My school doesn't grade on the 4.0 scale either. Your best bet is to ask someone at your school for a conversion table.That's what I did.
