GPA conversion for a 95% average?

Hello, I'm having some trouble understanding the GPA scale. My average percentage is 95. Can someone guide me on how to convert this into a GPA on a 4.0 scale?

Sure, I can help you with that! Generally, to convert a percentage grade to a 4.0 GPA scale, you can use the following conversion chart:

- 90-100% = 4.0

- 80-89% = 3.0

- 70-79% = 2.0

- 60-69% = 1.0

- Below 60% = 0.0

Since your average percentage is 95, it would convert to a 4.0 on the 4.0 GPA scale. Keep in mind that different schools and countries might have slightly different conversion charts, but this is a commonly used one.

It's important to note that while a straight conversion like this can be helpful for a rough understanding, college admissions officers are aware of different grading scales. If necessary, they will take the grading scale used by your school into account when evaluating your application.

It's always a good idea to check your school's specific policies on GPA conversion, as well as to provide context in your application (e.g., through your transcript or school profile) if your school uses a different or non-standard grading system. This will ensure that colleges have accurate information when assessing your academic performance.
