What is the grading in you school

  1. We seem compared to others here to have it easier,but we were told to keep our As at the door, and the class average should be less then a 80 or the test way too easy.

    C 69.5-79.4
    B 79.5-89.4
    A 89.5-100

    I know there are + and -, but don't know exactly
    Anything less then a 69.5 is failing.

    That is an usual grading system for a nursing school, usually the cut off is a C or B. For us it is a C, anything under 75 and we fail the class. At some schools anything under 80% is failing. Here is our scale
    A= 92 – 100%
    B= 83 – 91.99%
    C= 75 – 82.99 %
    D= 70-74.99%
    F= 0-69.99%

    My school uses the following grading system:

    92.5-100 = A
    83.5-92.4 = B
    74.5-83.4 = C
    <74.4 = Fail

    It's tough for me! But I can't imagine some other schools with much higher requirements!

    Ours is similar, but they do round, so you can get 74.5 and get a C, 83.5 for a B and 92.5 for an A. We don't have + or - either. it is what it is.

    Failing was anything lower than 78 in our program.

    Our points are calculated out to a grade point average, not percentage so I'm never really sure if at 90% I have an A or not, I just know I got a 3.3 for the quarter but under 75% is failing which they calculate at a 2.0.

    Same thing where I graduated from in all classes except Dosage Calc in which anything below 90 was failing.
