    Percentage to GPA Conversion

    Advertisements



    Hello,

    I'm a Canadian student that is in the process of applying to St. Matthews. I understand that the school itself will convert my Canadian percentage grades to a GPA, but I was wondering if anyone knows the scale they use to convert percentages to letter grades and letter grades to gpa? I'm just curious...

    Thanks!

    .... and 90% = A, 80% = B, and 70% = C, below 70 = F.

    Some but not all Caribbean schools will use the GPA rating system that your government acknowledges. I'm from Ontario and if I find the link I will come back and post it. But the Ontario GPA conversion is based on our letter grades and not out 13.0 scaled grade. So.....

    A+ = 4.0
    A = 3.9
    A- = 3.7
    B+ = 3.3
    B = 3.0
    B- = 2.7
    C+ = 2.3
    C = 2.0
    C- = 1.7
    D+ = 1.3
    D = 1.0
    D- = 0.7
    Any F = 0

    Now keep in mind some of the schools in my experience use a numbering system that is very very close to this but anything D- and lower is an automatic zero and I've seen A- as 3.66 from AUA for example. Ultimately, unless you have lots of low D's and F's which I doubt, your score will be almost exactly the same as what they calculate if you use this system. This is the Ontario 2007-2008 conversion system that was sent to me by an admissions officer at Saba. I know they use this system exactly as the Ontario Gov recommends. Hope this helps
