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:
wow, Lemonaidangel...that a crazy scale....but is ur program easy or sumtin...b/c thats a very uneven scale..ours are normal take god and most ppl are still on the border...90-100 A, 80-89 B, 70-79 C, and 70 is passing...D=fail
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!
