Schools use different grading scales (different lowest passing grades) and it is therefore necessary to determine the proper
grading scale before converting grades to US equivalents. Estadual schools have a lowest passing grade of a 5. Other schools
may have a lowest passing grade of 4, 5, 6, or 7. Schools that have a concept of an insuficiente, sofrivél or médio inferior
(insufficient) grade that is considered a pass shall be considered comparable to a US grade of “D”.

Class Ranking
Class rank is evaluated based on a letter written and submitted by the headmaster or principal of the institution from which the
student graduated. The letter must confirm both the student’s final position in his/her secondary school class and the total
number of students in the graduating class (e.g. the student is 41st in a total graduating class of 112 students).
Students who are homeschooled, complete the Certificado de Conclusão de Ensino Médio Supletivo, complete Ensino Médio
through the modalidade de distância, or complete Educaҫão de Enseneza de Jovenes e Adultos (EDEJA, CEJAD, EJA, etc.)
cannot use the class rank requirement to meet initial freshmen requirements.
