One of the schools I go to ignores the +s and -s, every A+, A and A- is a 4.0 and every B, B+ and B- is a 3.0 regardless of what numeric value the original school gave it.
Another give 4.0 to As and A+s or anything between 3.80 and 4.00 if the grade on the transcript is given as a numeric. They give 3.7 to A- or between 3.60 and 3.79, 3.5 to AB or between 3.59 and 3.10 and so on.
My school has a weird system where A+ (97-100) gets a 4.3. If I apply to various schools, would it be a 4.0?
And by the A+/A- weighting scale, I mean A- is 3.7 and A is a 4.0. Or do most nursing schools give whatever A a 4.0?
At my school, an A is a 4.0. Period. I got a 101.something overall in A&P I and it's a 4.0 on my transcript. I don't know if that's how most schools do it, but it's how mine does. My mantra has become "An A is an A is an A."
