And decide our ranks in class?

Australian uses 100 point scale and there's no ranking at all. I would wanna ask other Ozzie applicant's experience, how do you address this in your application?

Usually schools want you to put your score down and then the scale used by the school. I know some undergrads actually provide on their transcript how the grading scale works. Generally schools do not want you to try and convert.

Australia is not some unusual country to be applying from, I would call the school and ask how you should approach it. I bet they tell you just to report it like your transcript.

All international transcripts must be translated and evaluated by World Education Services (http://www.wes.org/) before they are submitted to SCPS Admissions. The results of the WES evaluation will allow the SCPS Admissions Committee to determine your ranking, etc.

I went to WES, and I tried to evaluate my qualification (which I acquired in New Zealand). For starters, WES didn't even have the degree I acquired. It just has the standard few degrees.

Secondly, it asks for a fee of \$20 for an evaluation.

Ridiculous.
