The degree of fibrosis (scarring) is defined as stages with 0 being no fibrosis and 4 cirrhosis.  There are also degrees of cirrhosis, but I am not sure of definitions.  There is compensated cirrhosis and decompensated cirrhosis.

Stage 4 on the metavir scale is cirrhosis.
All of this is clearly explained on the Janis and Friends Hepatitis C website which is great for learning the basics of your condition.
Good luck with your treatment.
