Kellogg form Honors: British classification vs US classification  [#permalink]

Hi folks,

I graduate from university in India which provides honors classification as per the British system. So First Class Honors is the highest, followed by Second class Upeer, Second Lower and so on.

The Kellogg form asks for Honors, but only has the US classification in the options. So theres Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Summa CUm Laude and so on.

So my question is how do I map the British system to the US system? Is there a recommended procedure?

I was awarded a First Class Honors. So what do I select in the Kellogg form?

Hi nishantd88,

The Latin Honor, Summa Cum Laude translates to "with highest honor," which equates to the First Class Honors. You can use that, and add a note on the optional section explaining that you have made the conversion.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi - I'm in a similar situation and I received Upper Second, what does this equate to in the US system?
