SamS Posted October 21, 2021 Share Posted October 21, 2021 I'm an applicant from India. I currently hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology, and I'm looking to apply to MA/PhD programs in the US and Canada for Social/Personality Psychology. My main concern is some of the universities ask for a converted grade from percentages to the 4.0 GPA Scale, the conversions drastically reduce my scores to about a 3.0 average or just slightly above 3.0. However, my grades have been consistently high according to the Indian scoring system, and I have been among the top of my class throughout my undergrad and postgrad courses, as well as an Honors student in my Postgrad. How likely will the converted scores affect my chances of admissions? Some universities let me justify the low scores ( if scores are below 3.5 GPA), how do I justify the same?
