I am a senior undergraduate student in computer engineering considering applying for Ph.D in the US. In my country we use a grading system based on percentages rather than GPA and it works as follows:
- 85-100% ---> Distinction
- 75-85% ---> Very Good
- 65-75% ---> Good
- 50-65% ---> Pass
My cumulative grade will probably be about 77% which lands me in the top third of my class. My question is how will graduate admissions committees view and evaluate my academic performance given the differences in the grading systems?
