Converting GPA from a 10 to 4-point scale

My high school uses a 10-point scale for GPA, but most colleges I'm interested in seem to use a 4-point scale. How do I convert my GPA from a 10-point scale to a 4-point scale? Will colleges do this conversion for me when they review my application?

Converting your GPA from a 10-point to a 4-point scale is a relatively simple process. Just divide your current GPA by 2.5, and you'll have your GPA on a 4-point scale. For example, if your GPA is 9.0 on a 10-point scale, dividing by 2.5 would give you a 3.6 on a 4-point scale.

When it comes to college applications, don't worry too much about the conversion. Admissions offices are experienced in dealing with different grading scales from various high schools. They'll likely calculate your GPA on their own preferred scale to ensure a consistent evaluation of all applicants. Just make sure to report your GPA accurately on your application based on your high school's scale, and provide any additional information about your school's grading system if necessary.

Best of luck with your applications!
