I have a question, in the European grading system, our grades are usually out of 10, my question is if I have a 9.07 i should put in my resume 9.1 or just leave it as a 9.07; don´t wanna feel like trying to lie, but putting two decilams in the resume feels kind of forced, what do you think?

Hi Anonymous,

that’s totally fine, you can round the numbers so far that the approximation is correct as in your case.

Best,

Hi,

Of course, you can round the GPA, don't worry about these small details. Concentrate on case prep.
