So you are all set to apply for a scholarship abroad but you hit the bottleneck of presenting a first-degree certificate that is internationally recognized. This conundrum is what the World Evaluation Service stands to solve.
WES helps evaluate only formal educational credentials issued by duly recognized educational institutions. WES does not convert, nor include, professional experience in its evaluation reports. WES evaluations are based upon the best information and resources available to professional evaluators. WES evaluations are offered as non-binding advisory opinions.
With partnerships at more than 48,000 Global Higher Education Institutions (GHEIs) worldwide in more than 200 countries and territories, WES represents a sure plug for converting any certificate obtained outside the USA to match with USA’s standards.
A tool for achieving WES’ core is the iGPA calculator that enables you with the information provided to convert your grade to the USA 4.0 acceptable 4.0 scale.
After starting the process using the calculator via, WES now WES authenticates academic records by one of the following methods:
- Requiring that official transcripts be sent to WES directly by the institutions or examination bodies that issued them; OR
- By requiring that official transcripts be authenticated by the relevant government authority (e.g. Ministry of Education) before being sent directly to WES;
- By verifying documents submitted by individuals by sending them back to the institutions/examination bodies that issued them and obtaining written confirmation of their authenticity.
