May 3, '09From: NV ; Joined: Jan '09; Posts: 183; Likes: 261I'm in an community college - 75% or above is C, 83% to 92% is B and 93% to 100% is A. Not that I'm bitter or anything...this is probably second semester in a row I have to get something ridiculous on final to get an A. Possible but not likely. Oh, and you must pass all tests with 75% or above - no bumping it with extra credit or papers or anything.

In Australia, you need to do a 3 year degree at uni to become an RN. The grades are as follows for the whole university:
High Distinction 85-100%
Pass 1 55-64%
Pass 2 50-54%
Fail 1 40-49%
Fail 2 Below 40%
You have to get over 50% for the whole subject to pass (I told you that you would hate me!) For example, once I made the mistake of doing a subject externally and had bad study skills so I handed up an assignment half finished and got a Fail. I then brought my final mark up to a Credit because I got a HD on the final exam. The exam was worth about 50% of my mark.
Usually it is classed as a decent mark to get a Credit. To get into your honours year or any overseas trips etc, you need a Credit average overall. A distinction is reserved for the smart people and a HD is like WOOHOO! The average students will get P1s and P2s with the a couple of Credits thrown in.
I usually get Cs and Ds and a couple of HDs, the other day i got a P2 for the first time (I only have 3 more subjects until I graduate!) I was like, what!? but I found out that many other students got a P2 too so i relaxed a bit after that. I decided if I get a low mark on my next assignment (worth 45% of the mark), i will ask for a remark, but the other essay was only worth 15%.
When you go to get a job, the employers look at your placement reports so really, your marks don't hold you back too much if you get good reports from the clinical facilitator and RNs you work with.
If they removed people from the program for getting below 75%, I don't think there would be more than about 3 people who got their degree in each intake. Maybe your assessment is structured differently.
