Where should I calculate my international GPA?
Answered

My GPA is currently at a 2.65 (someone else counted it out for me) and my SAT is a 1040. Math is 440 and English 600.

I have graduated high school but I’m retaking some classes in order to get a higher grade.

How much would I have to improve to have a chance at a decent college?

I’m not naive so I know I won’t be getting in to any great colleges, but I would like to have a shot at a decent one.

I’m also an international student. My country’s grade system is A-E which is all passing grades and then F for failing.

How do colleges calculate international students grades to American gpa?

And where can I calculate my GPA so that I can compare this to different colleges average, what’s the best site or GPA calculator to do that?

Your GPA conversion will depend on the country since different countries have different scales - where are you based?

If you can improve your GPA to a 3.0, you would have a better shot, though it will be harder to get in as international student. Here are some colleges with an average 3.0 GPA: https://blog.collegevine.com/colleges-you-can-go-to-with-a-3-0/

Once you have your GPA, you can filter for schools based on your chances using our school search tool! The filters are in the left-hand corner. We don't have a GPA filter, but you can search for schools based on whether they're targets, reaches, or safeties. You'd just need to fill our your chancing profile as complete as possible.
