I finished by first semester of university. My grades are as follows: Math (4 credits) - 100% - A+ Phys (3 credits) - 100% - A+ English (3 credits) - 81% - A- Chemistry (4 credits) - 97% - A+ Biology (3 credits) - 88% - A So, unlike most US schools, my school has three classes of A, and for some reason, uses a 4.33 GPA scale which works out to a 4.20 for me (However, I am not even sure if this will appear on my transcript). I intend to apply to US grad schools, so how will they compare my marks other applicants with the usual 4 point scale and A-, A? Will they look at the raw percent score at all? I will be a physics/Math major so obviously the last three courses are BS credits every first year "needs", so will they be given the same weight as my math and physics courses? Also, how are these grades? I am sort of pissed that my school is making me take English (In addition to many more arts courses through out my degree) because they are not my strongest area where as my friends at other schools are allowed to just focus on their major and pull off a perfect GPA. Will grad schools recognize this?
