    IBCC Conversion Formula for American Students

    I don't understand the conversion formula, can someone please explain it to me? Please do not send a link of the formula because I have seen it, and have no clue!

    I don't think anyone outside of the those people who do the actual converting completely understand the process/procedure with which it goes about. In the case of us students from the States they deduct 15% immediately from our results and then as you go down a letter grade it decreases another 5% ish (if I remember correctly). But since you said you've seen the conversion sheet, the best thing to do is not worry about it. My brother just got his results back and from what I had guesstimated I thought he would've gotten in the around a 70%. He ended up getting a better result than I had anticipated. If you did good in high school then I wouldn't worry about why they do the conversions the way they do. The other factors such as SATII can help you out tremendously if you do good on them.
