BTEC to GPA DDD= 4.0???

GUYS

I used 3-4 GPA calculators and put DDD into the calculator for BTECS and it said DDD =4.0 GPA unweighted i want to go to USA for uni so if this is true then its great since i wouldnt need a signle D* and DDD would be the maximum gpa (unweighted)

what college you going to apply for

NDSU, UND, Minnesota, CSU bakers these are the easy ones
CSU Fullerton, UMass, amherst these are the middle difficulty ones
Michigan - hard difficulty
NYU Stern - Dream school very low chance under 3.9/4.0 gpa and 1450 sat

USA unis look at u hollistically as a person as a whole with different achievements.
in the UK they ONLY look at u academically, so ur exams and grades.
in the US two main things are looked at academically:
GPA:
SAT (or ACT)
a 4.0/4.0 unweighted GPA
plus a good SAT 1400/1450+ would get you in tons of places except the ivies
(where you'd need more EC's and 1560+SAT)
