This guide, provided by World Education Services, contains suggested grade conversions for higher education in more than 120 countries. To access the grade conversion tables, please choose a country from the drop-down below.

Important Notes:

The interpretation of foreign grades is a sensitive issue within the field of international education as grading systems vary significantly from country to country. The suggested grade conversions presented here are not the only ones available. A number of formulas, models and approaches for grade translation, credit transfer and credential evaluation have been adopted in both Europe and the United States over the years. For an in-depth look at grading in different countries and the issues concerning grade conversions, please see the article by Guy Haug entitled "Capturing the Message Conveyed by Grades."
