UC Berkeley - No Social Science Classes are Curved

<p>My friend just started UCB as a transfer, Spring admit. </p>

<p>I posted a funny meme on his Facebook wall about curved grades and he replied with...</p>

<p>"Hehe... Turns out none of social scences classes at Cal are graded on a curve"</p>

<p>Is that true?? What about for econ?? Has something changed or am I missing something??</p>

<p>I've always been under the impression that the classes with curves are the ones in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering.</p>

<p>Why would Social Sciences, including Economics, classes to be curved?</p>

<p>I believe my friend's comment to be inaccurate. I called him on it and he said he heard this from some other poli sci majors. He says none of his Berkeley poli sci classes are graded on a curve.</p>

<p>I went to UCLA and majored in economics. Many of my econ classes were graded on a curve. I did not go to Berkeley but I believe many social science classes there (such as some econ classes) are graded on a curve. Can any Berkeley students confirm this?</p>

<p>there is definitely a curve for berkeley econ</p>
