    I've been working on the coursework section of the application and I'm having a little trouble. I received a B+ in a few of my courses, and my school doesn't have +/-, so the AADSAS grade should be AB (3.5). However, every time I put it in and press save, the grade changes to my transcript grade, B+. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks for your help!

    I'm trying to put in my grades for the course work section. Every time I put in a B+ as my transcript grade and then put AB as my AADSAS grade (this is from the conversion chart), the AADSAS grade changes to a B+ when I press save. Am I doing something wrong here?

    If your school doesn't give out +/-, how in the world can you have B+?

    My school only has +'s, not -'s.............I guess what I'm asking is: Does the AADSAS grade always match the transcript grade?

    Oh, that's what you meant.

    So, you have B+ on your transcript? Then, that's B+ also on AADSAS grade. Yes, they always match the transcript grade. Even if it stands for 3.5 in your school, I believe that AADSAS consider it as 3.333 = B+.

    I like this "pluses" only type of grading. That's so nice. So if you just miss an A, you at least get somethin'.
