International GPA Conversion?
I just completed my National Advanced Level (A LEVEL) in a university.
But my scores might appear lower than the average applicant.
For instance, in my 1st semester Economics,I had 70% which is technically an A (70-100) but it might seem low to top colleges in America even though the nearest % to me was 50% (second position).... I was first.
My 2nd semester Economics, I had 76% and the second had 47%. They' were set hard by PhD lecturers that teach the real university students.
Final (external) exam results coming out soon though.They are marked nationally.
I was honorarily appointed ( I didn't apply, I was just told I was chosen) to a university-students-only group and my lecturers all agree that I am academically at a level higher than my peers.
How can I make selective colleges understand this? I really tried my very best in the exams..
How do I convert to American GPA? I can't possibly have a <3.0 GPA according to the American scale.
