In Venezuela a grade point average ranges from 0 to 20 points, being 20 the highest, with one decimal sometimes used, depending on the academic institution.

Venezuelan grades are easily changed into percentages by multiplying by 5. Rounding of averages is generally done to the second decimal; hence, a 13.95 is rounded up to a 14.0, whereas a 13.94 is rounded down to a 13.9. A passing grade is usually a 10 (50%), but some schools and universities may require a higher passing grade overall, or sometimes by subject.

Some universities have different grading systems, 5 or 10 point grading scale, with or without decimals.
