Grading Scale?

<p>I heard (from a UVA graduate student who also attended UVA for undergrad) that the College of Arts and Sciences counts a 92% or higher as a 4 on your transcript (unless otherwise noted on the syllabus).</p>

<p>Is there a page on the UVA website to verify this? </p>


<p>I googled "UVA" and "GPA" and got: Grade</a> System & Undergraduate, College of Arts & Sciences, U.Va.</p>

<p>Each professor determines their own criteria for grades. A 92% is an A- (3.7) in most classes.</p>

<p>That is what I thought too, only 94%+ is a 4 in most CAS courses.</p>


<p>Also, the A- to A+ is weighted differently than the others -- anything in the A- range is a 3.7. All As and A+s are both weighted as a 4.0 (i.e. no extra weight given for A+). This means if you make an A-, it's numerically impossible to get that 4.0. I doubt there are hardly any students at UVA who have a perfect 4.0, but that's simply speculation on my part. Grad schools are aware of UVA's scale, so it shouldn't hinder you in the admission process when compared to a student from a school where all As are weighted as 4.0 (example -- TAMU). Also, for those interested in med school, all med schools will convert all undergraduate transcripts to the same scale as UVA (AMCAS).</p>
