Help!!

<p>So my counselor just called me and told me she doesn't know how to fill everything on the international supplement.
1)Our grading system here in Greece is on a scale of 20 but nobody knows how to convert them to the US system ( it asks for it on the supplement)
2) Our high school is only 3 years. (10th,11th,12th) . We have 6 years elementary, 4 years junior high and 3 years high school. Is it ok to attach only 10th and 11th grade and explain why?</p>

<p>3) Now that's a question i wanna ask : Does the supplement ask her for expected grades of 12th Grade? If so, do I just tell her the grades I think I'll get this year?</p>

<p>1) Use this website to find your GPA How</a> to calculate GPA
2) You must put your last year of junior high
3) For the predicted grades: they must be given directly by each of your teachers (who will be optimist or not)</p>

<p>I am pretty sure of my answers because I'm French and I had pretty much the same issues as you :)</p>

<p>Also, they ask my counselor if my classes are AP/IB/Honors and if my GPA is weighted or unweighted. The thing is that my educational system does not have any of AP, Honors or IB but I'm pretty sure that our courses are AP difficulty. In result we don't have weighted or unweighted GPA, what should I tell her to put?</p>

<p>When I said i didn't know how to convert my GPA from a my educational to US educational system I didn't mean to convert from a scale of 20 to a scale of 4...that's basic math. I meant that (if taking into consideration that both educational system GPAs are on the same scale) maybe our 3.5/4 GPA might be better than US's 3.5 GPA because the courses and grading are different</p>

<p>You don't have to put that you have weighted or unweighted since your grading system shows that you don't have such things in place.</p>

<p>Include your original grading system on the transcript. Do you really have to convert them to the US grading system. I didn't have to.</p>

<p>yea , but my counselor says that the online form doesn't leave you a choice but to choose something. There is no where to write ''neither weighted nor unweighted'' or something like that</p>

<p>Don't convert to GPA. Portugal uses 0-20 as well, and my counselor left that spaces blank.</p>

<p>You should try to translate your notes with an official translator. I have the same grading system and I left the GPA spaces in blank too.</p>

<p>Maybe this resource will help: WES</a> Grade Conversion Guide</p>

No, it does not ask for your expected grades in your classes. It asks for expected results of standardized school leaving exams (like British A-levels or the German Abitur or the IB exam). If there's no big comprehensive exam at the end of high school career, ignore that question.</p>

<p>If every class is treated the same in the GPA computation, your GPA is unweighted. </p>

<p>Does your school system make any distinction between harder and easier, or comprehensive and less comprehensive classes? If so, you should point that out. </p>

<p>For example, my school system made a distinction between "higher-level courses" (more comprehensive with 5-6 hours of instruction per week) and "standard-level courses" (less comprehensive with 2-4 hours of instruction). Every student chose exactly two higher-level courses and the remaining courses were taken at the standard level. My school report noted which two of my classes were higher-level.</p>

<p>If your school system has a standardized curriculum with no difficulty choices whatsoever, just ignore the question.</p>
