The USA system is very different from those around the world.
Where others use symbols, the US System uses numbers, where others use different terms or semesters as separate entities in your school grade percentage the US does not.
The US System uses the GPA system which carries all of your high school grade transcripts throughout your high school career or that particular year and adds them together and divides by the number of subjects to get a single number GPA.
