Marking of GPA during application

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Does anyone happen to know how the GPA translates to a score out of 15?  For example, 4.0 would be 15/15. How many points do you get for something below a 4.0? Thanks in advance! 

I believe a 3.9 is 14/15 but beyond that I'm not sure

The raw scores are linear. So 4.0 = 15, 3.9 = 14, 3.8 = 13 etc. Minimum for IP is 8/15 and minimum for OOP is 12/15. 

Remember though that the actual scores are z-scored which is based on the applicant average for each stream. So in reality it’s more complicated than that.

To follow up, does anyone know what the conversion is for the MCAT?

Last year I had a 518 and I believe I got a 10/10 in that section, but beyond that I'm not sure. Take a look at some of the previous threads and you'll get an idea.
