Thanks for the tip. I too have heard of this method of computing the GPA by taking into account the the scores of the top four people in the class, but am at a loss to know how this computed for my specific class. Would I be compared with my college class, the Elec Engg Dept for the Bombay University or the entire Bombay University as a whole. Would I be expected to compute this or provide this information to the university ?
Just for my information, suppose the person who scored the highest score in my class scored a 80% and I got a 70%. What would my GPA be ? Is there a formula of sorts ?
Knowing how you like to put a formula down on things ( like your calculate-your-GMAT formula
) was wondering if you know.....
P.S Your formula got my GMAt score down to within a few percentage points !
I'd just like to add that there are actually professional "credential evaluation" services that help people deal with this issue in the context of international admissions--I honestly don't know enough about what's out there to recommend any one in particular, but they do exist! That's a very different area of expertise than my own, though, so I hesitate to get too far into it.
I do agree that your class ranking is probably the most important thing here, since it shows how you perform relative to your peer group.
Best of luck getting it all sorted out!
