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.
Since India is such a large country that has many applicants to US colleges, the person reading your application will most likely be Indian themselves or highly familiar with your country’s grading system. So, American colleges won’t convert your grades, rather your application/transcript will be looked over by someone who understands how the system works and will just evaluate it based on that. No conversion necessary :) They’ll know what your grades mean by themselves without having to convert it to an American equivalent.
If you personally want to convert your percentage grade to GPA, I recommend this chart: https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/convert-a-grade-in-india-to-the-us-gpa-scale essentially it says anything over 60% is an A or a 4.0… I don’t know how the Indian system works but in the US there’s a lot of nuances/variety that could occur. Your best bet is not converting cause there could be an error but that’s just if you’re curious to see what the difference is.
