    -------
    there are evaluation agencies like WES (world education services) that evaluate your transcript and translate your grades to the us standard. you pay a certain fee then arrange for your transcripts to be sent to them (directly from your school in rp). in turn, wes will draw up your grade and educational attainment us equivalent...accredited, etc... check out their website. www.wes.org...or something.

    Good day, you can convert Philippine Grading system to GPA by Using Interpolation Formula.



    Using the data in this table. then use this formula

    To interpolate the y2 value in a table or chart x1, x2, x3, y1 and y3 need to be known.
    x1 y1 x2 y2 x3 y3
    Solving for y2




    __________________________________________________ ______________________________________________


    Illustrative Example:


    Let say your Grade Point average is 1.848**, then you want to find the GPA in unit of Percent.
    x1 = 1.75 y1 = 89.5*
    x2 = 1.848 y2 = GPA in unit of Percent
    x3 = 2.0 y3 = 87*


    Then Use the formula mention above



    ___________________________
    *just average the Equivalence i.e. (89%+90%)/2 = y1
    **This Grade is must base on YOUR OWN Average Grade




    IN CREATING A TABLE, MAKE SURE NA ALWAYS IN BETWEEN TWO KNOWN VARIABLE YUNG COMPUTED GPA FROM YOUR T.O.R.

    something looks screwy on that...

    An average score of 100% is scored as 4.0 at the College I graduated from in the USA.

    Like this:
    Percentage US Grade Equivalent GPA (approximate) 60-100 A 4.00 55-59 B+ 3.33 50-54 B 3.00 43-49 C+ 2.33 35-42 C 2.00 0-34 F 0.00

    Ah, here's a more detailed chart I found.. Again, this is USA GPA system:

    0%-59% => 0 GPA
    60% => 0.7 GPA
    61% => 0.8 GPA
    62% => 0.8 GPA
    63% => 0.9 GPA
    64% => 1.0 GPA
    65% => 1.0 GPA
    66% => 1.1 GPA
    67% => 1.2 GPA
    68% => 1.3 GPA
    69% => 1.4 GPA
    70% => 1.5 GPA
    71% => 1.6 GPA
    72% => 1.7 GPA
    73% => 1.8 GPA
    74% => 1.9 GPA
    75% => 2.0 GPA
    76% => 2.1 GPA
    77% => 2.2 GPA
    78% => 2.3 GPA
    79% => 2.4 GPA
    80% => 2.5 GPA
    81% => 2.7 GPA
    82% => 2.8 GPA
    83% => 2.9 GPA
    84% => 3.0 GPA
    85% => 3.0 GPA
    86% => 3.1 GPA
    87% => 3.2 GPA
    88% => 3.3 GPA
    89% => 3.4 GPA
    90% => 3.5 GPA
    91% => 3.5 GPA

    Hushdawg, the grading system in the Philippines is the opposite of that. For instance, a grade of 1.0 is 96-100% or excellent as Henry Santillan posted. The grades drop in decrements of 0.25 (i.e., 1.25, 1.5, 1.75 and so on). I know in US educational institutions 4.0 is the highest grade one could get and it drops by 0.1. You are indeed correct but the poster Henry Santillan is also correct as he is describing the Philippine university grading system.

    Ah, I think I misunderstood the question then. Or rather I assumed that the application was for a job in the USA.

    My mistake then.

    I graduated from Nepal with percentage 70 in aggregate that means my GPA score will be only 1.5, that's not fair.It is very difficult to get that score and the highest score in my college is only 74%

    @Abja please be guided here Academic grading in Nepal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and here WES Grade Conversion Guide first before this one:

    I think your grade is somewhat bet. Div. I Distinct. and Div. II Merit. Great job! n_n


    NOTE: Disregard the percentage since the passing grade in Nepal is 32%
