How to report IGCSE Grades on the Common app Courses and Grades section?Answered
So I have given 8 IGCSE exams. Some of my colleges require me to fill out the Courses and Grade section on common app.
The problem is that the IGCSE results were on the following scale: A*, A, B, C, D
The Closest option given by Common app is on the A-F scale but that scale goes like this: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-
How do I input my IGCSE grades? Is there a conversion scale or something?

Admissions officers will see your real transcript and understand IGSCE results. I also recommend putting these down as "other" when self-reporting.
