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

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
92% => 3.6 GPA
93% => 3.7 GPA
94% => 3.8 GPA
95% => 3.9 GPA
96% => 3.9 GPA
97% => 4.0 GPA
98% => 4.0 GPA
99% => 4.0 GPA
100% => 4.0 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%

Hello

Do I have to add all my grades then divide by the total number of subjects to get the GPA?
Thanks a lot.

No, multiply each grade on the subject's units. Then, you must have a sum of the products. After that, divide it to the total credit units of all the subjects you've taken. That's all
