I was recently asked by Tepper to provide a copy of the back of my marksheet as it could contain a grading scale. I provided them with a screenshot and it shows no grading scale but just two signatures.

A few days later, Tepper came back to me saying that they found a grading scale online from Anna University. When I checked online, the only grading scale provided by the university is the following:
https://www.annauniv.edu/academic_cours ... 20-Aff.pdf (Pages 7-8)

The problem is even though Anna University assigns a grade for marks in the range of 100, it only applies to students from 2013 onward and not for students who completed their UG at 2007. Also, I would only get a C if you by their latest scale and in US a C is considered very low in a 4.0 scale (less than 2.5). This is crazy because very few students get over 75% (B) according to this scale.

I am not sure what to do - Has anyone else faced this issue?

There must be something on your transcript that tells about the calculation method.
Do not worry about the conversion. The ADCOM is well aware about the differences in the marking schemes across the world.
