Numeric Grading Schemes Some college transcripts report numeric grades rather than alpha (letter) grades. Registrars often provide a transcript key to indicate the letter value for each numeric grade. The letter value varies by college and university. For example, a "92" may be equal to an "A" at one institution and "B" at another institution. ADEA AADSAS verifies that the applicant selected the correct letter "ADEA AADSAS Grade" based on the transcript key. If the transcript does not indicate a corresponding letter grade, ADEA AADSAS will default to the standardized grade scale below.
