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
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
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.
