I am an Indian student with a degree in computer engineering. I secured a second rank in my department with 83%. According to the GMAC gpa conversion table, my gpa comes out to be 3.3 . No one in our university gets more than 85 % in engineering. Having secured a second rank, is 3.3 gpa correct? I think it is unfair for me. Please help.

Standard GPA's are not necessarily based on a percentile. I had a 3.2 in Computer Science at my School and the highest GPA in my class was a 3.5. Computer Engineering is a hard degree and a 3.3 may be near the highest scores at some institutions.

Thanks CMcAboy for your quick reply. This means that while applying, the AdCom will consider this as a competitive gpa and I will not have any disadvantage right? Do I need to explain it in my essays?
Thanks again.

Yup, it depends. Schools generally consider the native scoring system and not standard scoring (the one on the GMAT application).
