Just curious what other schools grading scales are like.
I'm in an RN program.
Anything under an 82% even an 81.9999999 is failing
At my university, ours is close to yours, except 93-100 is an A. It sucks, because my nutrition professor made her grading scale like nursing so whenever I'd get a 90, I'd be happy for a second until realizing its a B! Lol
Good thing about it is that you can get different 'levels' of B's and C's (i.e. a 94 B = 3.9 GPA, a 93 B = 3.8, etc.) so this stringent grading system doesn't absolutely kill your GPA. You must have a 75% exam average in the class before any thing else is factored into your grade (clinical paperwork, etc.). You can have 100% on everything else in a class, but if you have a 74.4% EXAM average, you fail the course.
If you make below an 80 on an exam, you must do automatic remediation with the professor, plus a mandatory referral to university tutoring service.
