Problems transferring grades between countries?
I study in the UK. We have a grade system here:
40% = pass
50% = 2:2
60% = 2:1
70% = 1st
I have average mark of 78% and am the top of my year by a few per cent.
I apply to Australian university for PhD, where their grade system is:
50% = pass
65% = credit
75% = dist.
85% = High distinction.
They tell me my marks aren't good enough and shouldn't apply unless I have an average of 80%.
How do I show them that my marks are very good, and not just ok?

What makes you think the 80% refer to the Australian system? You're probably not the first UK student to apply for a PhD at this university. Other than that: The obvious way seems to be writing a mail and explaining why you think your grade is sufficient.
