Notes:

  • As the methods for computing grade point averages vary greatly depending on the institution, country, etc., it is not possible to provide average GPAs.  Whatever method is used for computing the grade point average, candidates are expected to have a high GPA. 
  • All candidates are evaluated equally.
  • Please note that the GRE scores listed above are averages.
