How do international students calculate their GPA?
Answered

Hello, I’m an international student from Indonesia, I go to a public school here, and I’m interested on applying to a university in the US. During my application on the Common App, I was asked to provide my GPA (weighted/unweighted). I’m having trouble on completing my application, because my school grading system here in Indonesia is different from the US. How can I calculate or convert my grades to a GPA? Thankyou for your time :).

I'm not sure how your grading system works exactly, but I did find a GPA calculator for international students. You enter your country, your grading system, and then the courses you have taken and the grades you received in them and it will calculate your GPA for you.

After using this website, I would also recommend double-checking your results with someone at your school, like a counselor, to make sure it is accurate.

Hey @Karina, I know this question is old by now and I hope you were able to figure out how to calculate your GPA. Do you mind letting me know how your grades are currently calculated? I want to be able to provide an answer in case anyone happens upon this question in the future.
