My school does not support the Gpa system in providing evaluation for our exams

I am in a high school that does not support this system in giving grades, so I will have a chance to apply to universities

What country do you attend High School in? That will be useful to know.

Since two of you are from Egypt, would it fair to say your schools use these marks? Or something else?

Percent Qualification

85–100 Excellent (Momtaz) (Arabic: ممتاز‎)

75–84 Very good or Distinct (Gayed Gedan) (Arabic: جيد جدًا‎)

65–74 Good (Gayed) or credit (Arabic: جيد‎)

50–64 Acceptable (Maqboul) or pass (Arabic: مقبول‎)

30–49 Weak (Daeef) (Arabic: ضعيف‎)

0–29 Very weak (Daeef Gedan) (Arabic: ضعيف جدًا‎)

For simplicity's sake, I would assign a 4.0 for Excellent, a 3.0 for Very Good, a 2.0 for Good, and a 1.0 for an Acceptable. (0 for Weak or Very Weak)

So you multiply the number of classes and grades by the 1-4 scale and come up with a total. So if you take 24 graded classes and get 84 points you divide by 24 and get your Unweighted GPA which would be a 3.50 GPA.
