I am a rising junior in Canada looking at applying to American universities.
In grade 9 I received a mid 80s GPA (an 85+ is a 4.0) and my GPA on the 4.0 scale was about 3.9. However, I know that many American institutions consider 80s to be a 3.0 or 2.7. I am unsure about which calculation American universities will use.
In grade 10 I achieved high 90s in almost every class and had a 4.0 by either definition.
Will American schools consider my grade 9 GPA to be a 3.9 or closer to a 3.0?
