How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hello there! There doesn't seem to be a universal way to do a conversion. I found this article that might help: http://en.ulink.cn/Shanghai/Academic/Assessment/. Others suggest a slightly different approximation:
A* - 4.0
A - 4.0
B - 3.7
C - 3.0
D - 2.3
E - 2.0
F - 1.3
G - 1.0
U - 0
Also keep in mind that A level courses are considered advanced, and you'd want to add 1 point to each course to calculate a weighted GPA. If you're using this for the chancing engine, this should be a loose approximation. When it comes to your actual applications though, there's no need to do a conversion. Admissions officers are familiar with the rigor of IGCSE, AS Level, and A level courses and will do their own conversion. To be sure, you can always call the admissions offices of the schools you want to attend. Hope this helps!
