    I currently attend a college that does not give A+. For example, at my school
    4.0 = A
    3.7 = A-
    3.3 = B+
    3.0 = B

    This being the case, I am wondering how I should enter my grades. If I enter them as they appear on my transcript, then I will not have any A+'s, thus lowering my overall GPA. I appreciate any help that I can get.

    Also, are Calculus and Statistics classified as other science or non science courses? Thank you

    There is nothing you can do about it, although I do feel like AADSAS is not fair regarding this matter as well.

    Yep. I think schools eventually look at our exact grades though. One A+ is given out of hundreds to thousands of students, your not missing out.

    Right. Especially since not all teachers will give out A+ even if they have the access to, so it all balances out in the end.

    in the end, what matters?, the GPA calculated on my transcript from my university or the GPA that they derive.

    The adcom is going to look at both, I think. At one of my interviews I saw them look at my official transcripts from my university as well as my AADSAS. They will first look at your AADSAS, then if they want to investigate further, they may see your university transcript GPA.
