    There is no conversion. It you're applying to a foreign country, just list your grades and they'll interpret them themselves.

    Hi,

    As GradeA said, there's typically no conversion. A general rule of thumb is to compare grades like-for-like, a B average will be around a 3.0, an A average can be around a 3.7. A 3.5 is more around the A- mark. However, since there's no standard for converting, this is dependent and you'll likely just list your results as is.

    Hope this helps,
