You should write a GPA over 4.0 on your resume just as you would any other GPA, but provide a bit of an explanation, such as achieving a 4.3 on a 4.0 scale (4.3/4.0) or 4.4 on a 4.3 scale (4.4/4.3).
Many schools have different grading methods, and using this method clarifies that your grade point average is not a typo, or that you didn’t go to a school that was so easy you were able to easily bump up your grade point average. List your GPA in the education section of your resume, and list your education in reverse order. For example, list a master's degree first, followed by your bachelor’s degree. Also, only include your GPA if you are a recent graduate or have less than five years of work experience, and you're applying for an entry-level job. Most industries don’t look at a GPA as a deciding factor in mid- to senior-level hiring.
