Final Grade Error!

Students General Students



I wish I could help you. It looks like your grade scale is a lot different then ours. A 79% here is a C+, a B- is 80%, and an A- is 90%. I hope you get everything figured out alright. It stinks to feel like you have been robbed on a final grade. i have been there, but just kept my mouth shut when I should have said something. It was my first semester in cllege (2 and a half years ago). Good luck!!!

Wow! An A- is 80%? So, would a 60% = a B-? I don't think I understand the grading scale. But it does look like your scores = 82/100.

Our grading scale is much, much different. A standard 10 pt scale (90-100 = A- through A+). I've never seen an 80 = an A.

yes, i'm in canada and our scaling seems to be different. and sadly, i'm tired of being told that I am "getting off easy" with my grades. I hate comparing grades! lol

A,A+ = 86-100

A- = 80-85

B+ =77-79

B =73-76

B- = 70-72

C+ =67-69

C =63-66

C- =60-62

Sigh. I hope it gets figured out!

There's nothing wrong with our scaling system. :chuckle

I only don't understand when an F is somewhere around 39 :uhoh3:

I'm still waiting for the results of my PSY exam. It was supposed to be up on WEB CT today but he's late. Again.

Were these weighted differently? Sometimes instructors will assign a certain percentage to finals. (?)

I'm at George Brown College in Toronto. Will be going on to Ryerson for my degree (unless a bridging program is in place when I graduate!)

Everything was supposed to be worth 25%. Thats what he told us at the start of the course. We didnt have a final. We had 3 tests throughout the semester and 1 assignment.

I got into Ryerson too but opted to stay here. Whats Ryerson like? Is it big? Where is it located? (street and area) I applied but thats it. As soon as I got into Ottawa I barely glanced at the others.

i feel for you because i have a b+ showing up on my transcript when i have a 100% in the class. I was like WHAT THE HECK!?!! and my teacher is nice but flaky and promises to fix it but its been 3 weeks now with no change and everytime i mention it he says "oh i'll get right on it." I am personally grateful that he was able to find all of our tests to correct his error ( forgot to record one of my tests!) we aren't allowed to keep our assignments or tests so i would have had no proof to back up my claim. It's so frustrating and i really hope it doesn't mean i'll miss out on getting a v-presidents list letter. (my parents love those things!). You should get the grade that you earned, so I definitely would talk to the teacher (politely and calmly) and if that doesn't work go up the chain.

I got the same result as you. 82%

Did you inform your Professor. That's the first step. You may not even need to file an appeal.

Send him the exact information you posted here.

Good luck.
