Hi Anonymous,

I would say it is totally fine to group the two, in case HR or the interviewer ask further details you can always provide further details later.

Hope this helps,
Francesco

Hi,

You can group them, or only mention the GPA of your second school if you believe this will favor you.

Best,

Dear A,

I would recommend you to group it, and in case you will be asked for more details, be ready to answer this.

Best,

André

Hi,

Nobody will recalculate your GPA, so feel free to do anything you want with it.
