What is your school's grading scale like?

  1. 0 Just curious what other schools grading scales are like.

    I'm in an RN program.

    94-100= A
    93-89= B
    82-88= C

    Anything under an 82% even an 81.9999999 is failing

    That's about what mine is. One C could ruin your chances.

    I was surprised to see mine is the usual
    90 - 100 = A
    80-89 = B
    etc

    92-100= A
    83-91= B
    75-82= C

    But my school is trying to change the grading system so is normal (ex: 90-100=A)

    Mine is normal A (90-100) etc. but our grades are weighted.

    60% of our grades come from tests, 25% from homework etc. Anything less than 80% 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

    Anything below a 79% is failing for our school. I finished last semester with a 78%.....so lucky me gets to repeat :/

    My school's grading scale is very similar- specifically in the Sciences. Some professors grade on the regular scale though. I'm not sure about our SON though, so I'll find out in the fall.

    We have the 90-100=A, etc but you have to have a 76% to move onto the next semester and they don't round up. So a 75.9% means you're repeating.

    My School.. Anything <80% for the semester is failing for nursing classes. They do round.. So a 79.5 will round up. A 79.4 will round down.

    Letter Grade Description
    Grade Points
    A+ 90-100 4.0
    B+ 85-89 3.5
    B 80-84 3.0

    95-100 = A
    85-94 = B
    75-84 = C
    <75 = failing

    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.
