New York, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
To commemorate International Education Week (November 14-18, 2011), international students can calculate a U.S. GPA on a 4.0 grading scale for free with World Education Services’ (WES) (http://www.wes.org) international grade point average (iGPA) Calculator™.
Attending an American university can be extremely competitive. With thousands of grading systems worldwide, calculating a GPA for foreign grades can be challenging for both international students and the schools that admit them. International students seeking to apply to U.S. colleges and universities can benefit from knowing their GPA in order to determine their admissions eligibility and to include it on admissions applications.
Students can use the online calculator for free until 30 November by using the promotion code “savenowIGPA” at http://www.wes.org/igpacalc.
