    Hi everyone! I have taken Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE - Indian Curriculum) instead of GCSEs. May I know what kind of weightage will be given to such applicants and how will the score be converted? How will I have to key this in my application? I achieved a total score of 10 out of a possible 10 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).

    Hey! Welcome. Most probably wont look at your 10th grade CBSE result at all and will only look at your IB then.But even if they do, it should not be a problem anyways because 10 cgpa (95%+ I'd reckon) is a very good score so you dont need to worry anyways.:yy:[
