Most of good Taiwan National Universities require a minimum of a 3.0 – 4.0 GPA, and some programs accepting students with a GPA under 2.5 are rare. But low grades don’t have to ruin your dreams of studying overseas.

There are some Taiwan universities and professors are relaxed requirements out there—you just have to be motivated and know where to look.

Most of the good universities abroad require students to present their GPA score along with their admission application. In Taiwan, for National Universities you need to have at least 7.5/10 GPA to apply.

However, the high GPA does not guarantee you the admission. The admission depends on overall documents you are presenting and the level of the competition in your application time.

In countries like India, the most commonly used scoring system is percentage (%) or GPA.

Therefore, students need to convert the range of percentage (out of 100) or GPA (out of 10), to a GPA scale of 4.0.
