    I am sitting here with my mouth open that so many of your programs allow low 70's or a 70% to pass! Jealous!
    I am in a 2 year program and anything under an 80% is failing. Our tests count first, if you aren't getting an 80% overall with the tests, none of your other assignments count towards your grade. You fail. If you are 80% or higher, your other assignments count.

    76% is a C. Anything below that is considered failing. I'm in a 4-year BSN program.

    I'm in a 4 year BSN program and the grading is as follows.

    0% - 59% (F)
    60% (D-) - 69% (D+)
    70% (C-) - 79% (C+)
    80% (B-) - 89% (B+)
    90% (A-) - 100% (A+)

    In our nursing program we have to have a grade of 74% (C) in order to pass and be allowed to advance, once your in the program you are only allowed to repeat one class and after that your out of the program but for the prereqs you can repeat each class up to three times.

    This blows my mind.

    At my school, above a 70 is passing and it surprises the hell out of me to see that apparently it's not like that almost anywhere else! In my class though no one gets A's in lecture at all. Literally not one person this semester has gotten an A on an exam, so maybe that's why they allow 70+ passing.

    I always thought the grade scale worked like this everywhere...

    70-79 = C
    80-89 = B
    90-100 = A

    Why wouldn't it be like that everywhere?

    you know this is making me feel so much better this finals season that I need a 97 on the final for an A...I mean I'm gonna try and all, but we all whine about our requirements. An 80% to pass dang that is harsh! I guess I'm fine with my B LOL

    yeah, I don't get the whole 80% to pass either. WE have normal grading scale and still maintain 100% pass rates on the nclex..The altered scales really doesn't prove anything

    I'm attending a 4 year university and the 74.5 is the cutoff grade for a C.

    I'm starting a diploma program in July and here is the grading system:

    100-94 Excellent A - 4
    93-87 Good B - 3
    86-80 Satisfactory C - 2
    79-74 Poor D - 1
    73 Failure F - 0

    Anything below an 80% is failing.

    In my school you have to have a 77% in all nursing classes to pass. I had a friend that had a 76.94 and she got bumped from the program. Also if you don't pass then you have to wait a year to re apply to the nursing program. This is a two year LPN program.

    Anything below '80' is a failing grade.
