I was just wondering how UWO calculates my grade percentage. My 2 best years are:

year 3 : 84%
year 4 : 93%

do they take both those numbers and divide it by 2? Or do they average all 20 courses? Thank you!

you have to convert each individual course grade to the OMSAS scale.

edit: just realized this is dents. please ignore!

This, but after that point it’s a simple average of the two years as they both need to have 10 courses anyways (30 credit hours or 5 FCEs, depending on your school).

Edit: wrong subforum, just realized I’m in dent here not med; sorry!

So they would take the Year 3 average + Year 4 average divide by 2?

So in the OPs case it would be 84+93 / 2 = 88.5 % average

Yeah - so I believe that Western dental does look at percentile and not OMSAS... could be wrong so its always good to email them directly...

In that case, yes - you'd just get a percentile average from your top 2 years.
