Converting 6.0 GPA to 4.0 scale

Hello! My school uses a 6.0 GPA scale, which is kinda confusing when comparing it to the common 4.0 scale. Does anyone know the best way to convert my 6.0 GPA to the 4.0 scale so I know where I stand in terms of college admissions?

Converting your 6.0 GPA to a 4.0 scale requires a simple proportional adjustment. To do this, you can follow these steps:

1. Determine your current GPA on the 6.0 scale.

2. Divide your current GPA by the maximum GPA on your school's scale (6.0).

3. Multiply the result by the maximum GPA on the 4.0 scale (4.0).

For example, if your current GPA is 4.8 on a 6.0 scale, the conversion would be:

(4.8 ÷ 6.0) x 4.0 = 3.2

In this example, your converted GPA would be 3.2 on a 4.0 scale. Keep in mind that college admissions committees are familiar with various grading scales and will take your high school's unique grading system into account. However, this conversion can give you a general idea of where you stand.
