It is if your school grants you a letter grade based on the percentage. An A is 4.0. So if your school gives you an A for earning more than 85% in that class then you earn 4.0 towards your GPA.

Two things to note:

  1. one of the posters answered 100% is 4.0. That's simply not true for most institutions. Most schools define a range for the letter grade A, rather than set it at exactly 100%.
  2. Having an average of 85% doesn't necessarily mean you have a 4.0 GPA. If you have 100% in one class and a 70 in another. You have an 85% average, but schools would not take your overall average percent and then assign a letter grade. They would give 4.0 to the 100% class, and average it with the grade you get in the 70% one, likely a a B-, which is an 2.67. So your GPA in this case is actually only 3.33, not 4.0 despite the 85% average.

This top candidate should really ask his own professors, especially if he/she wants a scholarship. It is all about “connections,” so he should apply where his professors who will provide letters of recommendations are well known. Hopefully his GRE is good as well.

Is a GPA of 3.5/4.0 undergraduate considered good to apply for a master’s degree?

A 3.5 GPA is a good GPA that should get you into a lot of decent graduate programs! But graduate admissions are a holistic process, so other important considerations will include personal statements/essays, letters of recommendations, and test scores (which tend to be what carry the most weight, assuming that all other factors are "good enough").

To get a good idea of where your chances stand as far as being admitted into any particular graduate program of your interest, I would look for admissions statistics online (median undergraduate GPA and GRE scores); many universities list this information online under the respective program or department webpage. This helps you determine whether you realistically stand a chance of getting in and whether it is worth your time to apply.

Good luck!

Please provide a little more clarity. Are you asking about university entrance GPAs? Since we typically use cumulative percentage average for purposes of freshman admission, I can only cite the typical parameters. For most Canadian university the minimum percentage average for admission is 70%. However, owing to competition for seats at such institutions as McGill and the UBC, that admission average can in effect be as much as 20% higher, depending upon the program and the number of applicants in any given year.

You’ve got it all wrong! The American public educational system is ranked very poorly against the rest of the world and Canada is ranked at the top. If you’re looking to compare where a student is at age and grade equivalent, an American would be lower than a Canadian.

I'm not certain, but I have heard many stories about the pressures in US universities regarding grade inflation.

GPA is less relevant in Canada, so the pressure isn't there for grade inflation.

I’d say an 85 is OK, but definitely not the best when competing with thousands of other students. Your average isn’t the only thing that universities take into account. Your extracurriculars, achievements, and essay matter a whole lot as well. It’s different when your 85 is paired with no extracurriculars versus when your 85 is paired with excellent extracurriculars. At top universities, everyone has great grades. The thing that separates you from others like you is what you do outside of the classroom. I feel like you have a shot at these universities if you do things apart from grades as well. Sports, dance, debate team, any sort of club or thing you’re passionate about will help you out tremendously. Best of luck xx
