TheBumChikiBum Posted October 16, 2015 Share Posted October 16, 2015 So, In my country marks are given out of 100 and the transcripts contain a percentage of marks. At Some place it's relative to topper's percentage and at some place it's not.So, in my university, it is not. Suppose that my percentage marks are 70% and topper has got 80%. How should I calculate the GPA. The two methods that I know:(A) (70/100)*4 = 2.8 (Absolute)(B) (70/80)*4 = 3.5 (Relative)Now, there is a huge difference between both the GPA I get. I personally find the second method more relevant as it depicts the actual performance of the student in his college environment and does not misrepresent his academic abilities. Which method should I use to report my scores? Dear Mods : Please relocate this thread/post if this sub forum is inappropriate. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
