Hi All,

I am sure all my fellow Indian applicants would have faced this situation. Most of the colleagues in India measure the performance in terms of percentage usually over 100.

How should we convert this into CGPA on a scale of 4.
I have got 74% and the pass classes awarded in my college are

70% and above - First class with distinction
60% to 70% - First class
50% to 60% - Second class
40% to 50% - Pass class
below 40 - Fail

So have i got CGPA 4.0..

all the transcript forms ive seen so far say DO NOT CONVERT, so you should probably leave it to them. they have enough international applicants to know how to convert themselves.

I think it also depends on where you stood in your class. Were you in top 3 , top 5 etc. I believe you can check this with the school you are applying.

All the events I have gone to the admissions reps all said do not convert scores. Since you are coming from India and they know very well how the scoring system works its not an issue. If you were on a scoring system that was very different and from a place that is very unusual for MBA applicants then explaining the scoring system in the optional essay would be smart.

Since you are Indian, all schools these days get lots of Indian applicants...don't try to convert it. At most colleges very very few people ever graduate with a 4.0. I dated a girl who was valedictorian of a large university and she had a 3.97, getting a 4.0 is extremely rare at most schools. All it takes is one B in some class that is challenging and has a professor that doesn't like to give As and you don't have a 4.0
