Calculation of the unweighted cumulative grade average

Please provide in your application form your unweighted cumulative grade average for your time at secondary school (last three to four years depending on your system); we accept an official document signed and stamped by your secondary school OR a word document prepared by yourself, along with the detail of calculation. 

Please note: Sciences Po will be prompt to recalculate all cumulative averages and could declare the application ineligible in the event of a false declaration.

If you are facing difficulties in calculating your cumulative grade average, please contact us (admissions@sciencespo.fr) before submitting your application.

Important: candidates preparing the International Baccalaureate, the GCSE/A levels, a US high school diploma or the Indian CBSE/ICSE are not required to submit this document (please see below).
