I graduated in the Philippines and employers here are asking for a GPA. How do you present your grades from the philippines?
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.
An average score of 100% is scored as 4.0 at the College I graduated from in the USA.
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
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.
