I guess this question deserves to be answered: how do you convert your grades for other countries ?
Some use letters, others percentage, ratios... And how are honors obtained ?
In France, this is how most universities and schools do :
- You pass when you reach ten out of twenty (10/20)
- You get the Mention assez bien from 12/20 to 13,99/20
- Mention bien : 14/20 - 15,99/20
- Mention très bien : 16/20 - 17,99/2
- Félicitations du Jury (sometimes) : 18/20 - 20/20
But I have no idea on how things work in the UK, Americans have their A+ to F...
I ask you this question because I would like to apply to a foreign universities after my first diploma (Licence) but I do not know what to expect as regards to the grade requirements.

To convert to the US system you can see
http://www.wes.org/gradeconversionguide/index.asp (this tells you equivalent symbols)
http://www.foreigncredits.com/Resources/GPA-Calculator/ (this does all the work for you)
UK seems a bit more tricky as most uni websites just tell you to use NARIC, which as far as I could see you have to pay for. Imperial has a website where you can see the equivalent of a second class pass which is their minimum (but some courses and other unis will ask for higher) http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/entryrequ...e/countryindex
