    Does anyone know how the total science is calculated? I thought it was the average of Bio, GChem, and Ochem. But apparently I've seen some people's total science to be lower than the average of their three science score.

    Thanks!

    Total science GPA is calculated using ALL of the courses which are considered by AADSAS to be science. This includes math, bio, chemistry, physiology, botany, food science/nutrition, physics, etc. (but is not limited to only these courses).

    Sorry, I was referring to the total science in DAT.

    NSX,

    My fault for not reading your post the way it ought to be! I should know better, I'm an English major!

    That Science score SHOULD be an average of those other three.
