India to US high school grade conversion

Note: these tables are for reference purposes only. College admissions offices may wish to convert Indian high school grades to common American numerical or letter grades for the purpose of comparing Indian applicants’ academic performance to that of other applicants. These numbers were generated by assuming that 60 is the lowest passing grade in American high school and scaled accordingly. Indian¬†applicants should not convert their grades for use on their college applications unless explicitly instructed to do so by a particular university.¬†
