Our (American) university has a lot of applications coming in from Asia- especially China, India, Japan and Korea.
Each of these seems to follow a different grading scheme and it is hard to do apples-to-apples comparisons of students scores across universities. We don't request WES transcripts.
What is a good way to normalize students across Asian universities? Which ranking schemes (global and local) are reliable? Do these ranking schemes provide fine-grained, easy-to-parse data that we can use for CS and ECE admissions (not just relative ranking)?
ADDENDUM: There seems to be an XY problem with the original question, as @FedericoPoloni points out. What we're interested in is indeed-- "What is a good way to compare transcripts for graduate admission, especially from Asian universities? Admittedly, this is a broad problem and solutions may be reductive or simplistic, but it seems unfair to not consider the quality of teaching, research and the cohorts worked with, when evaluating student transcripts.
The current answer and comments, while helpful, will leave admissions restricted to IIT, Tshingua, KAIST-- since we do not trust transcripts from other universities, and though exceptions can be one-off, this approach does not scale. I'd be grateful if you could share references to meaningful datasets and ideas to use the data without unfair bias.
