Does Ottawa round the wGPA to 2 decimal places (ex: a 3.926 is rounded to a 3.93) or 3 decimal places (ex: a 3.9266 becomes a 3.927)? 

 

of course they can change things at any time but historically yes! they do round. 

and there are people believe it or not where that was actually critical

I’ve been told they round to 3 decimal places 

maybe they changed it - when was that?

Considering the GPA is comprised of 30-40 courses give or take, and the GPA scale is at one decimal place you can see why rounding out too far starts getting a bit silly. Well at least in my opinion
