The Iranian grading system is similar to that of France's in secondary schools and universities; the passing grade is 10. level programs, respectively. Iranian grades are not convertible to the 4.0 scale GPA directly, and should be used according to the destination universities' regulations. Usually a grade of more than 16/20 is considered excellent. The following table is most commonly used by world institutions and universities to convert from the Iranian grading system:[1]

Grade Scale 1 Scale 2 Description Mentioned
16–20 A 4 Excellent Highest distinction
14–15.99 B 3 Very Good Higher distinction
12–13.99 C 2 Good Distinction
10-11.99 D 1 Acceptable _
0-9.99 F 0 Fail _
