# GPA scale?

## Recommended Posts

I have noticed that U of C provides a GPA conversion scale but I can't find one for U of A. Does anybody know what it is, or is it OMSAS?

No one does for sure (people have tried contacting them before), but I can't imagine it's much different than U of C's.

How would that work for grading scales though? Like if you had an A but no percentage score?

A is same as A+ at U of A = 4.0.

A is same as A+ at U of A = 4.0.

But what about the rest of the scale lol? Rather random moment here but this is why I love these forums. Everybody is willing to work together and help each other out. A lot of people here (not all obviously) at Dal can be reluctant to help out when you need it.

No prob.

A- = 3.7

B+ = 3.3

B = 3

B- = 2.7

C+ = 2.3

C = 2.0

C- = 1.7

D+ = 1.3

D = 1.0

D- = 0.7

F = PHAIL...

Awesome. Thanks a lot for the help. I have to admit I like the scale too because maybe I'm not so screwed after all.

anyone know what the equivalent 4.0 (for alberta) would be of the following?

I took these courses at UWO (ontario).

70%

72%

75%

77%

78%

is it also true that they take only the top 6 credits?

And no, they do not take the top 6 credits. They take the GPA of all the courses you will take, dropping the lowest year if you are applying in your fourth year.

The prerequisite GPA no longer exists for the applicants of the 2009-2010 cycle.

Hi Wut? thanks for the post.

The previous page only have the percentages up till 80. I was wondering if anyone knew what would be equivalent UofA GPA for an Ontario % mark from 70% to 78%

any ideas?

My apologies I didn't realize the scale didn't cover the entire range.

Your best bet would be to e-mail the UGME!

Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know how accurate this is? I emailed them a couple years ago and was given:

87-100 = A/A+ = 4.0

82 = A- = 3.7

78 = B+ = 3.3

75 = B = 3.0

71 = B- = 2.7

68 = C+ = 2.3

65 = C = 2.0

60 = C- = 1.7

So if we combine those two, we have almost the entire conversion and the scale for marks below 80! I don't know how accurate this is though.

I've been wanting to know my Alberta GPA for ages, I wish we could get some definitive answers!

Do you have to have a full course load each year to have your lowest grades dropped from your cgpa, like U of T?

# For applicants who have completed 4 or more years of post-secondary transferable course work, the admissions cumulative (academic) average is calculated with the deletion of the lowest year GPA, provided it is not the most recent completed year, or the one and only year where 30 transferable units of course weight (5 full course equivalents) have been completed.

# Successful completion of all Pre-requisite courses.
