Err I always thought that to convert from the 100 pt scale to the 4 pt scale you simply divide by 100 and then multiply by for.. so a 92% would be a 3.68.
At my school, a 92 would be an A, so it might be a 4.0. But points are granted by having an A or B or whatever in the class, not overall, so if you have a 92 from all A's, it'd be a 4.0, but if you got some higher A's but also a few B's along the way, you'd have a lower GPA.
If you want an accurate conversion, you have to convert all grades individually and then calculate your GPA from there. Converting just the GPA doesn't work because as KrazyKow pointed out, a 93 average might be a 4.0 if you got 93s everywhere or it might be a 3.5 if it's a mix of 96s and 89s.
you could convert them mathematically by bringing it into the required fraction but every school has a different rigor of scoring, that's where the problem lies.

Try converting centimeters to pounds!
I suppose they can be approximated...but there is not set conversion.
How to Convert Your GPA to a 4.0 Scale
A+ (97-100) = 4.0
A (93-96) = 4.0
A- (90-92) = 3.7
B+ (87-89) = 3.3
B (83-86) = 3.0
B- (80-82) = 2.7
C+ (77-79) = 2.3
C (73-76) = 2.0
C- (70-72) = 1.7
D+ (67-69) = 1.3
D (65-66) = 1.0
E/F (below 65) = 0.0
A --- 100 - 90 --- 4.0-3.5
B --- 89 - 80 --- 3.49-2.5
C --- 79 - 70 --- 2.49-1.5
D --- 69 - 60 --- 1.49-1.0
F --- Below 60 --- 0.0
Note:
A '+' means .33333 added to the whole number.
A '-' means .6667 added to the whole number.
Each school is different. My school for example doesn't use A+. Some schools do.
WES Grade Conversion Guide
all of you suck at math
get the number your interested and multiply it times 0.04
there you go.
92*0.04 = 3.68
if your school reports your gpa out of a hundred this is how you convert
You can go by the collegeboard conversion chart for the most part.
nice calling everyone stupid, but you are wrong.
