Hi all,

I apologize in advance if this has been asked before. I go to York and the grade system it uses is:
90%+ --> A+
80-89.9% --> A

As you can see, there is no A-. Our transcripts only show these letter grades (and not percentages).

My question: would both A and A+ count as a 4.0 for McGill? Or is there something I'm missing here?

 

Thank you!

Thanks for your reply, Distancea.

I did some more digging, and came across this thread: 

There are several people there saying A = A+ = 4.0.

Now I'm confused :)

Yes that's true. McGill only has As so anything above an A is considered 4.0. That's how I entered my A+ grades into the workbook

If you click the OMSAS conversion table, you shouldn't have a problem converting your grades across institutions: https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/omsas-conversion-table/

You will see that McGill is the only school that uses column "8" for example. Whereas, York uses column "9". The OMSAS value scale (out of 4.0) is on the far left.

  • Only your A+ at York would equate to 4.0 on OMSAS; your A at York would only equate to a 3.8.
  • At McGill, an A would equate to 4.0, whereas an A- would be a 3.7.

Hope this helps.

I think you guys are saying two different things lol.

Okay, what about this: If someone from York had 9 A+ and 1 A, what would their GPA be as an OOP McGill applicant?

A. 3.98 (using OMSAS, an A is a 3.8 and A+ is 4.0)

or

B. 4.00 (the A would be the same as the A+ for McGill)

 

I think the answer to that will settle things! :)
