Poll: Your school's grading scale

I was wondering if everyone's school was the same as mine. We have to get a 92% or better to get an A (75% = C). They base this on how the NCLEX exams are graded.

How does it work for you?

A = 94 - 100

B = 87 - 93

C = 80 - 86

Anything lower than an 80 got you kicked out of the nursing program.

Our's is >=93% for an A. Med school is fail/pass/honors.

I know anything below a 77 you can't continue

100-94 A

93-85 B

84-77 C

This is the first school I've been to that had a plus and minus system. My ADN program wasn't so generous 93 to 100 was an A. My undergrad at another university was a 10 point scale 90 - 100 equals an A, and I liked that one.

If only my college would have had a grading sytem that was a point lower...such as giving an A for a total score of 93%.....I would have made more As! :uhoh3:

One point cost me several A's, and one point cost me a B in one subject. My final total score in Pharmacology was 93%........an "A" at some schools....NOT my school...oh noooooooo...."B at" my school.:rolleyes:

I won't know until I attend orientation, but I've "heard" that you have to make a 78 to pass, so I would guess a 78 is a C to them. It sucks that I have to wait until orientation to know all this stuff. I want to know NOW!:chuckle

70 and above is passing.

100-90 = A

89-80 = B

79-70 = C

69 and below you cannot pass

A 96-100

A- 93-95

B+ 89-92

B 86-88

B- 83-85

C+ 80-82 All required lab modules and test must be at 80% or higher to recieve a passing grade. Beyond this it doesn't matter, because if you get anything lower your out.

94-100 =A

87-93 = B

82-86 = C

below 82 is failing and you are kicked out of the program. You must maintain an 82% on all test too, so it is feasible to have a "C" in the class because your class average is 83 or so % but if your test average is below 82, you fail the class regardless of your class average - we lost 3 students this last semester for that exact reason

Also have to maintain 95% on all med tests your 1st year, 100% your 2nd year. We also have no make up tests, if you miss a test, it's a 0 regardless of the reason you missed the test (yes, even a death in the family). Clinical is pass/fail and if you miss more than 1 clinical you fail.

93-100 A

85-92 B

77-84 C

Wow, it has been interesting reading these. I don't feel so bad now. =)

Ours is

93-100 A

84-92 B

75-83 C

Below 75 - fail

You can fail one class and repeat, but if you fail two you are out of the program.

And how is it that there is a 8 pt difference in Bs and Cs, but only 7 in As. Not fair! :( I seriously got a 92.3 one time and got a B! Bleh! :p It's not what regular colleges give, but I guess the grades are raised b/c of the NCLEX?? But it is weird to see so many different variations.

A = 94 - 100

B = 87 - 93

C = 80 - 86

Anything lower than an 80 got you kicked out of the nursing program.

This is the exact grading scale my school uses. An a is a 94. There is no rounding off or curving of anything. (93.5 is not an A :rolleyes: ).

Anything lower than a C+ you get kicked out, and if you are doing your pre-req's you have one more chance to take the class over......after that anything you repeat you do it elsewhere cause you are no longer welcomed. :stone

I would have made more A's using the grading system of MOST of the posters so far! :rotfl: And my A&P Instructor didn't give me credit for my .5 in his class. I had a 86.5 in A&P I and he told me there was "no rounding off" on the grading system. :uhoh3: A&P came along and I got close to a 90, so that was an easy B compared to A&P I which for some reason I found to be more difficult than A&P II. :)
