    Confused about GPA Conversion?

    Advertisements



    Hey guys I am a little confused about GPA conversion. I heard to move from pre med to med you need a 3.0. That at my university is approximately a 75%, how does AUA's grading scale work? How much is a 4.0? How much is a 3.5? How much is a 3.0?

    Thanks a lot!

    im assuming your saying that your school reports GPA as a percentage??

    i think i have stumbled across a chart on wikipedia that has the conversions...

    google "GPA wikipedia" or something like that and youll find what your looking for...

    hey

    What I meant was, in Ontario when you compare the grade to the OMSAS chart, or relatively to other universities in Canada, a 3.0 is typically around 75%. In antigua, is a 3.0 considered 80% or lower? I'll try looking it up on wikipedia, but I was hoping someone from the school could tell me what a 3.0 is, considering to go from pre med to med you need to have that.

    Thanks again

    maybe?

    Grade Percentage GPA value A 90-100 3.5-4.0 B 80-89 2.5-3.49 C 70-79 1.5-2.49 D 60-69 1.0-1.49 F 0-59 0.0

    reference: Grade (education) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Does this apply to the carribean schools then? a B average is a 80%?

    Some Canadian schools grade the same as US schools, however for many the percentages are lower than the standard US percentages. For example a 73-76% at many Canadian schools will translate as a 3.0 in AUA GPA Calculations.
