 HiCan you please tell me what is the rule for CGPA conversion from scale 10 to scale 4.0?(e.g. I have a CGPA of 7.5/10, what is the equivalent on scale 4.0?)Is it a simple unitary method, or some other method?Please advice, as this information is required on the day of GMAT, and my university has a scoring on scale of 10.Thanks a lotVarun SharmaIndiavarunislost@gmail.com

 Thanks a lot!!Actually google is where my confusion actually starts, there are so many contradicting ways cited on google for CGPA conversion.A problem with my marksheet is that I have no grades but a CGPA of 7.5/10.I'm not sure if we apply the simple unitary method to it.(If we do, ny GPA comes to 3.0/4.0, but I was the second topper of college, so it doesn't make sense!)It'll be helpful if someone can answer.FYI I gave the GMAT on 25 June, and was asked my GPA on BIQ (Background Information Questions).And by the way, I scored 750 (50,41) (AWA awaited)I'm also in the process of zeroing in on colleges. Any help is highly appreciated!Thanks

 You can contact the individual schools to ask them how they will convert your grading system; different schools will likely have different policies. You may also want to get information from your university as to your class rank and statistics for the grading system - especially if your school used a tougher grading system (which it sounds like it did, if 7.5/10 placed you high in your class! I'm not sure what "second topper" means, but you say it in a way that indicates it's good :). You definitely want to make sure that the US schools understand how to interpret the numbers so that it looks good for you! _________________Stacey KoprinceInstructorDirector of Online CommunityManhattanGMAT

 Good luck! And if you get some information from the schools about how they will interpret your grade data, it would be great if you could take a few minutes to come back and let us know. I'm sure other students are in your same situation and would appreciate the information. Thanks! _________________Stacey KoprinceInstructorDirector of Online CommunityManhattanGMAT
