Is our class rank/percentile calculated based on the 12th grade half yearly marks or 11th grade marks?

Keep in mind that many Indian schools do not rank students. If your school does not, then indicate that on the form. There is no need to try to calculate your own rank for the sake of US college applications. Admissions officers clearly say they do not want you to report rank if your school does not use it as an indicator of academic strength. There will be ways in the recommendation forms for your counselor and teachers to indicate where you stand in relation to your peers. Good luck!

The answer to this question varies by your school. Having said that - you will most likely be applying to colleges before your 12th grade half yearly marks, and so if your school ranks as you go, adcoms will be looking at your 11th grade marks (and rank). If you are applying after a gap year or later in the cycle, they will see your later marks (depending on the school). Some universities, for instance, the University of California system and the University of Washington, do not look at your grade 12th marks for admissions purposes. It's a good idea to ask your school's counselor exactly how your school ranks in order to answer this question the most accurately. In fact, it is always a good idea to talk to your school counselor, who will be the one who writes you a recommendation.

  • In India, an average score for a high school paper would be 70% or so. Most GPA converters list this as about 2, which is a pretty bad score- so obviously, GPA converters are unreliable at the most. I do know that you aren't asked to convert marks in the applications, but does anyone know if they do convert them while they are analyzing the application? If so, do they use a reliable converter?
