Getting grades over 100%-Grade Inflation
Hello, I am an international applicant and i was surprised to find that many American students have grades over 100%. Where i am from a grade of 100% represents perfection and nothing higher can possibly be given. When I see others with grades of 105% all I can think about is the massive grade inflation Americans are notorious for. Not that they may not be extremely intelligent individuals its just that such a grade should not be possible. Do American universities recognize this? Or are international applicants at a disadvantage because our school boards believe nobody is "above perfection"?5 replies
