Second, you need to think first about which colleges fit you best.  It may turn out that you are worrying too much for the wrong reasons.
My name is Helly Diaz and my family and I just relocated to Aiken, SC from Vienna, Austria after six years overseas. Hello, I currently have a 3.4 GPA on the 4 point scale and was wondering what exactly that would be when converted to a percentage? I don’t think there is any standard way to convert the grades from IB to a US system. We would need to know the full breakdown of the scale you are suing in order to help you calculate your grades. That depends on the policies of your college, which should be available on the college’s website.
I saw in a separate thread that my GPA may be artificially inflated due to electives and other, non-academic subjects. If it is at all relevant, I am taking two honors courses, and for my sophomore year I will be taking a significantly more strenuous curricula (5 AP, 1 Honors) you may remember my post. This discussion points out that grading in the USA should be standardized at the national level because most colleges admission policies use linear conversion model like this one that tend to discriminate against some students because their high school grading system is not converted correctly. Your UTB Grade Point Average (GPA) will appear on your official transcript and will reflect only course work taken while enrolled at The University of Texas at Brownsville. Calculating your GPA is easy and an essential step in keeping up with your academic progress. College level courses generate hours (semester credit hours by course) and points (grade point value of letter grade). Multiply the number of credits in each course by the number of grade points corresponding with the letter grade.
Add the credits and the grade points for every course in which a letter grade was received. The TOTAL number of grade points earned divided by the TOTAL semester hours attempted is the GPA.
Typically an article discussing how to increase your college gpa will detail everything but the most obvious solution.


Fortunately, this article will explain that solution and how you can boost your college GPA by almost 20%.
If your school allows a PE class grade to count towards your GPA, by all means you need to take a PE every semester.
Don’t wait another semester to implement this strategy because you think next semester will be too hard. As The Fraternity Advisor, Patrick Daley has written over 500 articles and helped over 1,000,000 undergraduates improve their Greek Organizations. You can see that the majority of students who got in had high school GPAs of 3.0 or higher, ACT composite scores of 20 or higher and combined SAT scores of 1500 or better.
Your GPA will exclude any course work transferred from other institutions, any course work taken by correspondence and may exclude some credits earned by examination.
To get the number of grade points earned per course, multiply the credit hours by the grade points.
It is not absolute but it is the easiest and most common way of measuring academic performance. GPA is computed by taking all the grade points equivalent of the marks you received and dividing it with the total credit hours. However, the international standard is the 4.0 grade points system, which is what you need to familiarize and understand to get the high GPA score you want. However, the most effective way to improve your GPA will not require you do change your study habits or who you study with. It will not really require much extra effort at all. By taking an extra class, that bumps it up to 18 hours.  This is very doable if that extra class is 100% fluff.
To be successful, an applicant should have grades and standardized test scores that are at least a little above average.
Higher grades and scores significantly increase your chances of receiving an acceptance letter.Note that there are a some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. My oldest daughter just started the 11th grade at South Aiken HS and her counselor is having a hard time converting her IB grades ( 6s &7s) to the US grading system. As well, Canadian universities have a unique process so I would encourage you to check directly with the colleges you are considering in Canada so you get the most accurate percentage.


To calculate your GPA, you will need to know the credit hours for each course you are taking.
Various schools practice different ways of grading, ranging from the highest to the lowest.
Naturally, these classes are much more difficult so the grades often reflect greater academic excellence with A the equivalent of 5. And eventually, you’ll be staring at graduation and wishing that your GPA was a just a bit higher. Whether you use the Luther application or the Common Application, the admissions folks will be looking for a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and a positive letter of recommendation. Some students who had grades and test scores that appeared to be on target for UT Knoxville did not get admitted.
In truth, many universities would not specify a specific GPA score for your college application is weighed given various factors. This is why it is best to determine the school you want and know their requirements beforehand.
Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. It may take a long process of preparation to get into the college of your dream or the job you desire.
While others use descriptions like excellent, great, satisfactory or needs more improvement. Students with an impressive talent or a compelling personal story will often get a close look even if grades and test scores aren't up to the ideal. Grades and test scores matter most, but the admissions officers will also consider the rigor of your high school courses, your extracurricular activities, and any special talent you might have (such as athletic excellence). Marginal applicants may also benefit from submitting an optional personal statement and optional letters of recommendation.
