Canadian Grade Conversion

Postby JSC4 » Sun Mar 27, 2011 2:34 am

Hey do US schools typically convert from the Canadian grade scale to the US grade scale.
I have heard that a 90%+ is an A?
at my school, this is how we are marked:
70-79=B
80-89=A
90+ = A+
(on a 0-4.0 scale and 90+ being 4.0)

Even if it's the percentage it will still be on the Canadian scale converted to letter grades, at least hearing from people at schools that give percentage grades (UWO and UofT).

UofT's scale is quite odd in that an 85% is= 4.0 (perfect GPA), so does that mean a US school woould actually see a 4.0/4.0 for a UofTer?

At UofT a 4.0 is reffered to as the full Bieber.
