What's your school's cut-off for passing?

Posted

The Sac City grading scale thread got me wondering what the cut off percentages are for different schools. At my school your exam scores must average 72% or over. 71.9 is a failing grade. What about your program?

A lot of my classmates would love to be at your school!

Ours is 77% to pass with a C. Anything below is a fail.

We need 85% for a B and 93% for an A. Kind of sucks. I know they are trying to keep their stellar NCLEX pass rates, but from my observation this semester they will be failing students who certainly could pass the NCLEX.

The local University nursing school only requires 70% for a C.

78% to pass. I think the highest I've seen is 80%.

Wow 80% is pretty high. I forgot to say that an A is 100-90, and a B is 89-80. Are your programs BSN?

I'm in an ADN program, and we have to score 78% or higher to pass.

I'm in a combination Diploma/Associate's program, and passing is 78%

I'm in a BSN program and 73% is required to pass. 70-72 is a C- which is not a passing grade.

While at LPN school, passing grade was 75%. Now at the BSN level, passing grade is 74%.

I am in a BNS program and we have to have an average of a 78% to pass.

82% is passing, the school is successful at weeding out the people who won't pass NCLEX. We have 100% pass rate. Unfortunately we have lost people who would be very good nurses, and wouldn't have a problem passing NCLEX.

Same. 78% or bust!

In my BSN program, we have to average 70% on our tests (3-4 tests in each class) and then everything else we do is factored in.
