    Our grading scale is insane. Need 96 to get an A, 94 to get a B...85 is a C- and 80 is failing.

    Taught in a community college program where an A was 94%, B was 87%, C was 80%. Anything below a C didn't matter because you were out. More recently, taught in a state university BSN program that thought it was all that -- A was 90%, B was 80%, C was 70% (and most faculty were v. easy graders, too. :uhoh21 Go figure ...

    At my university (in Canada)
    Less than 60% is a fail
    60-69% is a C
    70-79% is a B
    80%+ is an A

    Although I am curious as to whether the difficulty of the programs are the same. I mean, if I were a B-average student, would I be failing in a US nursing program that required an 80% to pass? It'd be interesting to see how I did at a school in the States :uhoh21:

    At NRCC it is:
    91-100=A
    82-90=B
    75-81=C
    Anything else is failing

    I'm sorry but that is soooo WRONG!

    94 is a B.. are you freaking kidding me? Unreal that 85 is a C-
    We would have maybe 4 students left in our class.

    I know! It's terrible! Our school prides itself in having one of the highest NCLEX passing rates in the nation. I think it's because they have weeded out everyone but the genius smart people. I hate it.

    BUT...I'm passing so far! I've even gotten a few As this semester. Maybe I'm one of the few who will make it? I hope so!

    Mine was:
    80-84 = C
    85-92 = B
    93-100 = A

    Anything below 80% is considered failing. They did tell us that the BSN program goes back to the "traditional" grading scale:

    70-79 = C
    80-89 = B
    90-100 = A
