Hi! I'm going to apply to some US universities and I want to know if they know in some countries the exams are more difficult and that my grades are good here ( 8,6/10 in sophmore year) but when I convert it into a 4 GPA scale they look worse. Thank you!

They do, but the reality is that for international students SAT/ACT scores are more important to compare you with other candidates. It is difficult for admission officers to understand how challenging is your workload and they might lack statistics on how well people from your country with similar grades perform. Good luck !
