      How do the British University Grades get converted to the American CGPA.

      I got a B+ i.e Upper Second Class Honors for my undergraduate. What GPA would that be in the American Sytem.

      Ne links, info would be appreciated.
      I am willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I'm never wrong.

      I think u will need to convert it manually based on the university's grading system. For example, in some universities grading policy 87%+ is GPA 4, while in other it could be as high as 94%+.

      Similarly some universities may grade u GPA 3 from 80-90% while other may grade u as 3 from 80-85% & 3.5 from 86-90%.

      U will need to check that on case by case basis.

      From what I know, an Upper Second Class Honors is usually around a 3.1 ~ 3.2 CGPA.


      Check these links - Hope they help:

      ^ couldn't have said it better. Every school has its own grading scale. You would have to ask them.

      ALthough all Universities have their own system, but unless the scale of reporting used is the same standard, your host University will not entertain manual changes on a University-by-University basis. They will either expect you to provide a certified copy of your grades in their expected format or they'll use a conversion scale that they have access to.

      All universities follow a well-defined conversion mechanism for transfer students. For local courses, teachers can alter this definition whenever desired. Like university states that 85%+ is an A, but a teacher can make it 90% or 80% for a specific course. It is sometimes known as curve.

      and yet it isn't really a "curve" or a "bell". but merely a "shift"

      ^ yeah... most people "call" it a curve without realizing what that the exams almost never follow a representative Gaussian Curve, and the Prof. just ends up shifting the entire class's grades by using some cut-off. Shhh... don't tell no one!

      BTW y u always have to leave.
      what?

      From my own research, a low 2:1 is about a 3.0 GPA, and a high 2:1 is about a 3.6-3.7 GPA.

      By the way, for non-Brits wondering about this:

      1st Class Degree (1) is greater than or equal to 70%
      Upper Second Class Degree (2:1) is 60-70%
      Lower Second Class Degree (2:2) is 50-60%
      Third Class Degree (3) is 40-50%
      Pass (P) = 35% to 40%

      Typically , 10% or less of students at an educational institute get a First Class Degree. Uk university exams are apparently more difficult than elsewhere, but compensated for with lower grade boundaries.

      [size=2]Isnt there an organziatin where I can officially get my grades evaluated from, and get the conversion done.[/size]

      The univ I am applying to just wants some sort of authentic proof , as to what my GPA is. They dont have ne system of there own to evaluate.
      I am willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I'm never wrong.
