Now I know why nobody ever gets a 4.0 at my school ...
- 1May 6, '13 by bonjournurse2bI was looking through a syllabus for one of my classes (worth 900 points total). This is the grading scale
A = 899.07-900 points
A- = 810-899.06 points
B+ = 787.5-809.99 points
B = 742.5-787.49 points
.. I'm not even going to post the rest of the scale. But as you can see, it is damn near impossible to get an A. A's count as 4 points on the GPA scale, A-'s count as 3.75, B+ as 3.3, B as 3.0
Keep in mind that this a pharmacology course! We all know that it is not a walk in the park. Isn't that bizarre??
- 0May 7, '13 by SopranoKrisWow, and I thought our Pharm class was tough with 92-100 being an A. (They don't do A- at our school. But they do give a B+ for a 3.5 and a B for a 3.0, etc.) They do not allow rounding of grades in nursing courses, so if you had a 91.9, it was a 3.5 and not a 4.0.
Math courses at our school have 94-100 for an A. It nearly impossible to get an A in math unless you ace every exam.
I can't believe they only give less than 1 point as a buffer for a 4.0. 899.07-900 for a 4.0??? How can anyone be that perfect??? Especially in Pharm!
- 0May 7, '13 by bonjournurse2bCome to think of it, each question is worth 2 points. What my professor does is take the # of items on the exam and multiply it by 2. Partial credit isn't given, either. So you can't even miss one question! Say what?!Last edit by bonjournurse2b on May 7, '13 : Reason: A certain abbreviation is a little too profane for here. Haha
