I 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??

Come 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?!
