# Gpa Score Calculation

## Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone knows what GPA corresponds to different scores out of 15. I have been trying to guess based on peoples total academic score but not entirely sure.

since they round to the nearest tenth:

4.0 = 15/15

3.9 = 14/15

3.8 = 13/15

......

Do they round your average GPA? Or is it a rounding of each year and then averaged, and then rounded again?

I'm assuming the former, but just checking!

Yeah, each year is rounded and then the final average is rounded as well.

Even though dal is on a 4.3 scale I assume they convert to a 4.0 (for dal students), I.E. A and A+ each are a 4.0?

Nope, they convert to 4.0 using OMSAS

oh thats really to bad, I always thought an A = A+

Anyone know how they round scores that end in .05? So would a 3.75 be rounded to 3.8 or 3.7?

##### Share on other sites

Yes. They round to the nearest 0.1.

for step 1 you enter your grades and it gives you immediately their adjusted GPA - so there wont be surprises on that end

They round up! So 3.8 in your example

Hi, I am on OOP waitlist this year and knows I have very little chance getting in and preparing for next cycle.  My GPA are

1st year 3.85, 2nd year 3.86 3rd year 3.88 and final year (this year) 3.67.

My question is, just in case I got an offer, does my final year meet the 3.7 minimum required since according to their faq "If successful in gaining admission, applicants must demonstrate that the course load and minimum GPA requirement has been maintained in the final year. "  Also if I am ok to reapply for next cycle?  Thanks in advance.

You should be fine because of the rounding. I would probably email admissions just to be sure though.

Since I don't have an offer and next cycle application is not online yet, I'll just leave it for now.  Thanks for the reply.
