Question Description
Hello, Iím from Nepal. Iíve got 79% in BBS level. In countries like Nepal, India, Pakistan etc, as much I know there isnít any grading system like GPA but I came to know our percentage score can be converted into GPA. So can somebody please give me the GPA conversion table? How much will my 79% be when converted to GPA? Please help with my percentage to GPA score conversion. If possible also give percent to GPA conversion table for several percent ranges.

Thanks in advance for helping me convert my percentage to GPA conversion with a conversion chart.

Many people have many thoughts about converting percentage scores to GPA scores. Most say for 4 GPA score, the equivalent percentage will be 100% => 4.0 GPA, 75% => 3.0, 50% => 2.0, and 25% => 1.0. But I donít think such GPA conversion is a correct or the real one.

Here is the GPA conversion system which I found most trustworthy and genuine. It is published by Cascadia Community College in USA. Here is the conversion pattern:

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

I hope this conversion pattern will help Indian, Nepali, Pakistani and other students who belong to country where scoring is done on percentage of total score.

There is no actual and exact universal Percentage to GPA conversion chart, but below is the chart used by most of the American, British, Australia, and Canadian universities.

Percentage to GPA Conversion Table:

Below 30 percent, the GPA is 0
31 percent = 0.1 GPA
32 percent = 0.2 GPA
33 percent = 0.3 GPA
34 percent = 0.4 GPA
35 percent = 0.5 GPA
36 percent = 0.6 GPA
37 percent = 0.7 GPA
38 percent = 0.8 GPA
39 percent = 0.9 GPA
40 percent = 1.0 GPA
41 percent = 1.1 GPA
42 percent = 1.2 GPA
43 percent = 1.3 GPA
44 percent = 1.4 GPA
45 percent = 1.5 GPA
46 percent = 1.6 GPA
47 percent = 1.7 GPA
48 percent = 1.8 GPA
49 percent = 1.9 GPA
50 percent = 2.0 GPA
51 percent = 2.1 GPA
52 percent = 2.2 GPA
53 percent = 2.3 GPA
54 percent = 2.4 GPA
55 percent = 2.5 GPA
56 percent = 2.6 GPA
57 percent = 2.7 GPA
58 percent = 2.8 GPA
59 percent = 2.9 GPA
60 percent = 3.0 GPA
61 percent = 3.1 GPA
62 percent = 3.2 GPA
63 percent = 3.3 GPA
64 percent = 3.4 GPA
65 percent = 3.5 GPA
66 percent = 3.5 GPA
67 percent = 3.5 GPA
68 percent = 3.5 GPA
69 percent = 3.5 GPA
70 percent = 3.5 GPA
71 percent = 3.6 GPA
72 percent = 3.6 GPA
73 percent = 3.6 GPA
74 percent = 3.6 GPA
75 percent = 3.6 GPA
76 percent = 3.7 GPA
77 percent = 3.7 GPA
78 percent = 3.7 GPA
79 percent = 3.7 GPA
80 percent = 3.8 GPA
81 percent = 3.8 GPA
82 percent = 3.8 GPA
83 percent = 3.9 GPA
84 percent = 3.9 GPA
85 percent = 4.0 GPA
86 percent = 4.0 GPA
87 percent = 4.0 GPA
88 percent = 4.0 GPA
89 percent = 4.0 GPA
90 percent = 4.0 GPA
91 percent = 4.0 GPA
92 percent = 4.0 GPA
93 percent = 4.0 GPA
94 percent = 4.0 GPA
95 percent = 4.0 GPA
96 percent = 4.0 GPA
97 percent = 4.0 GPA
98 percent = 4.0 GPA
99 percent = 4.0 GPA
100 percent = 4.0 GPA

Although it is used as the most appropriate percentage to GPA conversion table by most universities, top universities in USA, UK, Australia, and Canada have their own unique algorithm to determine actual GPAs of the students. Such algorithms, used to calculate the GPAs of students from different countries, are made after in-depth research of that specific country's academic standard, academic syllabus, highest scores obtained, etc. It is therefore advised not to convert your percentage to Grade Point Average (GPA) on your own; instead, ask the institution youíre applying to about how much your percentage converts to in their GPA system.
