Hi,
I updated my profile on GMAC website yesterday. While filling the gpa column, it says ryt there in the column that if you are Indian student who completed undergraduate in engineering with first division, then gpa should be 4. So, I filled it.
But now I am starting to suspect that it could not be 4 because my percentage in undergrad is 68. Am I wrong or what..? And if I am, how can I correct it??
Thanks

Well a 68 is probably not really a 4.0, but you are right in that the conversion is not so clear and that if you look at different sites, you will get very very different conversion scores. So you don't need to go back and change it, but when considering how your score might actually be perceived, it might be something different.


Just for perspective, since a 4.0 is a range near the highest scores that people get.. in India I'd say that a score in the 80s would be a 4.0.

Best,

But if I won't change it, doesn't it going to get me in trouble in future??

No, just explain the source. But once again, for the most part, schools do their own evaluations of your grades from the original.

I would follow the guidance of the school in the application form. Most schools will ask you not to convert your GPA so just follow their guidance as they will be experienced in evaluating a myriad of different transcripts and GPAs from schools across the world
