I have done my undergraduation in India where the grading system is different from USA. I am trying to fill the online application and there are few questions which I don't know how to answer. Questions are as follows:
1) School Code:
I did not find the school code in the look up search provided there. Can I leave it as blank?
2) Estimated rank among peer students:
In bracket an example is provided (i.e., top x%). I know I am among the top 10% of the class, but I don't have any document which specifies that. Can I just go ahead and put Top 10%, am I suppossed to provide some proof for this?
3) For Non-U.S. Colleges and Universities or U.S. Institutions NOT using a 4.00 grading scale, please include the following, Overall Score or Average Grade:
My undergraduate states that I got 'First With Distinction' grade. i.e 4.0 GPA I guess. I wanted to specify 'Distinction', but the text box provided allows me to enter only 10 letters. What am I suppossed to enter there?
4) Other High School/Secondary School
: I have studied in private school(s) in rural India, which are not certified as an authorized public school(s). And I have hopped about 4 schools during my 5 year high school period. At the end of 5 years I appeared the high school board examination through an authorized public school as a private candidate, passed in distinction and got my high school certificate. (I know this is confusing for you, but its kind of like that.) My certificate states that I am a private candidate belonging to 'Luthern Model High School' and passed the exam in March, 1990. I have never attended Luthern Model High School except for the fact that I took the board exam through this school. If you are still with me and able to follow what I am trying to explain, I would appreciate if you can help me out with what I am suppossed to fill in the application form.
I would appreciate if anybody can answer the above questions.
