GPA - International student
Hi! Is there any way I can calculate my GPA? In my country, we don't have GPA scores, and an A is 75 and above, B is 65 and above, etc. According to the usual American GPA system, with scores like 60s and 70s , my GPA comes out as very low.

Q. What country do you live in? If you shared that, perhaps someone on here can find a GPA converter for your country. I wouldn't us a GPA converter from a 3rd party like what the other poster provided because those firms are Pay for Service companies just looking to sell you something. I would only use free reputable calculators that DO NOT ASK for your personal information.
For example, the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka uses the following assessment systems:
Therefore this is the closest thing I would recommend using for figuring out your GPA.
Score (marks) Grade Grade Point Average (GPA)
80-100 A+ 4.00
75-79 A 3.75
70-74 A- 3.50
65-69 B+ 3.25
60-64 B 3.00
55-59 B- 2.75
50-54 C+ 2.50
45-49 C 2.25
40-44 C- 2.00
Hi! You can google GPA calculators, or go to this website (https://www.scholaro.com/gpa-calculator/); but first, make sure your classes have credits and how many credits each one of them have. If the grading system in your country doesn't use credits, you should put "1" in all credit spaces, so that all of your classes are measured equally.
Some schools don't really require GPA if your country doesn't calculate it for international students.
Collegevine has a GPA calculator that can help you. Go and click on the three dots on top of the collegevine website and select GPA calculator from the additional info section far right. CONVERT.
