1. ## How are you calculating your cGPA and sGPA?

Thanks for the response, My one question regarding the calculation of sGPA. If I use the letter grades I have received from my institution to calculate my GPA, I would roughly have a 3.6. If I used the grade percentages from my courses, I would have an 83% average. Using the ORPAS scale, that grade percentage would place me with a > 3.7GPA, which would be much more appealing to most Universities versus having a 3.6 GPA. How would you determine which method of calculating the sGPA would be correct? Thanks again
2. ## Chances of getting into PT

Just wanted some input on my chances of getting into Queens, Toronto, Western and McMaster. I've had a hard time trying to gauge my GPA as I have gone to two different schools over my last 2 years, and both of them have different ways of calculating GPA, and one of them doesn't include a grade % in their transcripts, only letter grades. Here is a table of my last 20 classes with the suspected GPA correlating with the letter grade. School #1 A 3.9 A 3.9 B- 2.7 A- 3.7 A- 3.7 A- 3.7 B+ 3.3 A 3.9 B 3.0 A 3.9 B 3.0 A 3.9 GPA at school #1 = 3.55 School #2 92% A+ 4.0 72% B 3.0 79% B+ 3.3 92% A+ 4.0 91% A+ 4.0 93% A+ 4.0 76% B+ 3.3 81% A- 3.7 84.3% total =3.66 Average % at school #2 – 84.3% Total average GPA of the 2 schools using letter grades = 3.6 using whatsmygpa One question I have is using school #2 for calculating my GPA, I have an 84% which correlates to 3.66 using whatsmygpa, but when looking at ORPAS table, grade percentage of 84+ is >3.7gpa. Are there any other ways to determine what my GPA is over my last 20 courses? If I did add everything correctly, and my GPA is 3.6, are there any schools that would actually consider me? Thanks,
3. ## How are you calculating your cGPA and sGPA?

I have a quick question, when most of you are saying "sGPA - 3.70 and cGPA - 3.54" how exactly are you calculating your GPA from grade percentages? For example, using the ORPAS conversation table, your average grade percentage would be roughly 80 - 84% for 3.7 and roughly 76 - 82% for the 3.5 gpa. I have roughly an 84% over my last 60 credits, would that put me at a 3.7 GPA? https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/orpas-conversion-table/ Thanks in advance
