    At Russian universities, there are grades 3, 4 or 5 (the highest mark). So the GPA could be between anything between 3.0 and 5.0.
    How to compare Russian GPA to a UK-required 3.5 or 3.7 GPA?

    Thanks for advice

    I really doubt there is any universal conversion formula. Besides, different unis ask for different minimum GPAs.

    For example, LSE asks their Russian applicants for "a Magister with good grades (4/5)" check it here

    I guess there is. I have already tried contacting NARIC, they seem to be the ones responsible for such issues, but no reply so far.
    I know about LSE. Some other universities, like Warwick, also give specific requirements for students from Russia.
    However, some other unis just say 3.5 GPA or 3.7 GPA without giving Russian equivalent.

    If you have a short list of universities you are interested in, try contacting them individually, as they may have different requirements...particularly if you have additional experience.

    Got a reply from NARIC. They said they do not provide information on grades, rather on the type of degree attained.
    Anybody has experience from Russian university to UK MSc?
