Estimating Class Rank

Postby sanpiero » Fri Jan 08, 2010 5:02 pm

Does anyone have a decent way of estimating where a 3.57 might fall on B curve?

Top 25%? Top 15%? Top 1/3?

Probably Top 10% or very close to it.

Does your school not even publish historic percentiles?

I had a 3.59 and it put me right at the 10% mark.

We just converted from number to letter grades in August, so the historical data isn't terribly useful. I'm also not sure whether the curve changed from prior years.

At any rate, T10% would be a welcomed surprise.

This is the grade distribution for my school. I imagine that the variance would not be too great.
