I've received a conditional offer from Australia National University (ANU). To accept this offer I must have an average of 85% in my current undergraduate program, but I found that my final average is 84.5%. Unfortunately, I'll graduate from my current school next month.

Can I email to ANU admission office to argue about this 0.5% difference? Can it make sense?

What makes me feel hopeless is that when I get my Bachelor degree, I'll no longer have the chance to increase my GPA.

    Yes, you can email them (or perhaps better, phone them). Will they let you off? Only they know that. I'm not seeing an answerable question here. – Flyto May 24 '16 at 9:43
  • You could ask your current school whether you can re-sit some one exam to improve your score. Most probably, they would let you do it, since it is also their interest that you succeed. – mmh May 24 '16 at 9:50
  • Do they verify your GPA? When I enrolled in graduate school (not ANU) I don't think they verified that I finished my undergraduate degree. – Anonymous Physicist May 24 '16 at 10:30

    Do they have a policy for rounding GPAs? – mdd May 24 '16 at 11:47

    Best thing to do is contact ANU. They can tell you what to do exactly. Talk to some of your professors/advisors and see what they will suggest. – JKJ May 24 '16 at 12:38
