My GPA on my educational system: GPA stands for Grade Point Average, which is a measure of a student's academic achievement at a college or university; calculated by dividing the total number of grade points received by the total number attempted. It reflects the weighted mathematical average of the quality of your work, as indicated by your grades.

Why a GPA?

Knowing your GPA is the simplest way to learn how you compare to others when you apply to study in other countries. Colleges and universities want to evaluate your grades based on their own GPA scale.
