GPA Calculation [#permalink]

Hey Everyone

I have a few queries.
1) I want to understand the procedure of calculation of GPA (We are allotted subject wise score out of 100 in India).
2) I didn't get a good score in first two years of my Bachelors Degree because I was doing Chartered Accountancy (equivalent to CPA in USA) along side and working full time (as a part of the course). How should I explain this in my application? Should I mention about it at the end of the application?
3) As mentioned above, while doing Chartered Accountancy (CA), we are required to work for three years full time in a CA Firm, with a provision to join Industry in the last year. I've worked for 2 years in Deloitte (Statutory Audit department) and in the last year I joined Deutsche Bank (Corporate Banking). Though the three years experience was completely for training purpose, but it was full time job. Would this be counted as work experience?

Thank you in advance for the help.

Re. your question 1, HBS specifically says that you should not convert your grades into GPA:

"A quick note about GPAs: If you don't have one, enter "0" for both your GPA and the scale. Class rank is optional; if you don't know yours or your school doesn't rank students, leave it blank. Many colleges and universities in the U.S. use a 4.0 grading scale. Don't worry if your school does not -- and DON'T convert yours to a 4.0 scale."

You probably already submitted, but thoughts are below.

1. Answered above. No need to do anything.
2. No, this isn't something to explain. It's common to study CA and they will see it anyway so writing it again won't help you.
3. This can count if it's 40+ hours of work and you got a salary.

Good luck!

Good advice above, only thing I would add is most work experience during undergrad will not be viewed as full time work experience so use the qualifiers above of 40hr weeks, salary and job title to evaluate whether this was truly FT work experience or not
