Convert average into GPA for a foreigner

    Hi PF,
    It might sounds stupid but if I don't ask I'll not know until I reach another turning point in my life.
    I'm currently studying in Argentina and I'd like to know if there is a website or something like that that can tell what is my GPA in function of my average. Here we're evaluated on 10 and the passing grade is 4/10. I've heard that a 4/10 correspond to scoring well 60% of the exam, but it might just be rumors.
    I'm a bit worried about my average and I'd like to know if I can dream about graduating in the US. Anyway I know I better score the best possible in order not to worry that much.
    Sorry if I posted in the wrong section. Thank you.

    In general, there is no hard and fast way to convert between foreign grading systems.

    I did find this. But keep in mind that it has no official meaning; it's just a guideline.
