The Grading Scale For Your School

Posted

I was in a thread here at Allnurses and someone mentioned that an 89.5% is an A. I was a bit surprised as I never have seen that scoring before. This got me to thinking what the average grading system is for the posters here at Allnurses.

Here is the grading scale for my school:

A = 94-100

AB = 90-93

B = 86-89

BC = 82-85

C = 78-81

D = 70-77

F =

What's yours?

My School

Grading Scale:

A+ = 97-100% +

A = 93-96%

A- = 90-92%

B+ = 87-89%

B = 83-86%

B- = 80-82%

C+ = 77-79%

C = 73-76%

C- = 70-72%

D* = 60-69%

F =

For prereqs it is the old school scale:

90-100 A

80-89 B

70-79 C

65-70 D

below 65 is an F.

Nursing school anything below a C is failing and they do round up so a 89.5 would round up to a 90.

Man I'd do a lot right now for a 90% = A. I need a 10/90 on my final to get a C and a 85/90 to get an A in my final class of nursing school. I think my 4.0 is his-to-ry.

Nursing School Grading Scale for us

100-94 A

93 A-

92-91 B+

90-88 B

87-86 B-

85-84 C+

83-80 C

Below 80 is failing

Pre-rig's are:

90-100: A

80-89: B

70-79: C

below 70: MP(Making Progress) or D (depending on class, some classes like Math you can't get a D and pass, you will get a MP and retake)

below 69: F (if you have a pell grant, you can't get an F in any class)

In Nursing School, anything below a 75%, you get kicked out. You are able re-apply but if get below a 75% again then you are kicked out for good and deemed unfit for nursing in that college.

Of the two colleges I've been to in Texas, it's:

90-100 = A

80-89 = B

70-79 = C

And anything below 'C' is failing.

My school doesn't have a standard % but the grade has a set GPA, my sociology prof had a higher scale

A >94

B 85-93

C 75?-84 this isn't fair when 1/2 of your ranking is based on GPA, I got a 94% A- any other prof. Would have given me an A. Oh well, I'm in now.

My Micro prof. Did not do +/- grades.

Nursing will be 74% to pass. Not sure the full scale yet.

95 to 100 A 4.0

92 to 94 A- 3.7

91 to 88 B+ 3.3

87 to 85 B 3.0

84 to 82 B- 2.7

81 to 78 C+ 2.5

77 to 75 C 2.0

Forgot.. here is the computation of GPA.

The computation of the grade point index is based on the GPA hours and grades earned. Quality points are assigned to each credit hour attempted, according to the table above. Grades of "I," "IP," "S," "W," "AW," "Z," or "EXM" or grades preceded by the letter "R" (i.e. remedial courses) do not calculate into the grade point index. The following example illustrates how the grade point index would be determined for one term:

A 3 credit course x 4 quality points = 12

B 3 credit course x 3 quality points = 9

B 4 credit course x 3 quality points = 12

F 3 credit course x 0 quality points = 0

Total GPA Hours = 13 Total quality points = 33

Term Index = Quality Points/GPA Hours

2.54 = 33/13

Our grading scale is:

100-93 = A

92-86 = B

85 - 80 = C

Below a 80 is a F

Pre-req are regular scale.

geez ours is 87% and up is either A- or A or A+....78 and up is B- so on....but to be fair our course is so hard compared to the other schools...no one would pass! lol but we do have the best nurses in the city :)

Ours is 92 = A; 82= B; 75= C Less than 75 is failing We have to average 75 or above on all tests and 75 or above on other stuff- papers etc I wish we had pluses and minuses because my 91 B is right now equal to an 83 B. I'd like the extra half point on my GPA
