Hi, I'm looking at the U.S for grad school and I've been reading talk about grade point average's, more specifically that around 3.0 is not considered particularly great. I assume that a 3.0 GPA means a 75% average, over here 75% is decent A grade. A GPA of 3.5 (which i've read is good) would be ~88%, which is fantastic! I'm just curious about what the difference is and why people need to score so much higher in the states? is it because you guys are allowed to take all sorts of (potentially easier) courses along with your major?
