India postgraduate GPA equivalency table

Body

If you completed your undergraduate degree in India, you can use the following tables to find the UQ equivalency score required to apply to UQ. 

Scores are based on a grading percentages scale where 40% is a pass. The requirement will be adjusted when a different grading scale applies. 

Note that requirements that apply to you may also be 5 to 10% higher than indicated in the tables, depending on the ranking and reputation of the institution where you received your undergraduate qualification. Use the Department of Education's Qualifications Recognition Policy as a guide to ensure your academic background meets Australian standards. 

Your equivalency score may be recalculated depending on the number of backlogs you have and when they occurred. You are only permitted:

  • 8 backlogs in a 4 year degree
  • 6 backlogs in a 3 year degree
  • no more than 4 backlogs in the last 2 years of any degree. 

Contact a UQ authorised representative if you need help finding the equivalency score required from your institution. 

These equivalency scores should be used as a guideline. Where programs don't have a set equivalency score, view the 'Program details' tab on the specific program page for all entry requirements.
