Hi,
It said that I have to write course title exactly as it appears on transcript
I cannot type whole title, should I just use abbreviation?

Yea, use that abbreviation. Pretty much everybody knows what that means.

Thanks for quick reply!!!
one more question.

It said "write grade either number or letter grade"
In my school transcript, I have both..

ex) chem ###" 90 A+

so AADSAS application:
- grade : 90
- AADSAS grade: A+

Am I right?

I don't think you should abbreviate. Type as much as will fit in, exactly as it reads on the transcript. If you run out of space, than so be it.

AADSAS allows percentages?
As I remember it they only had grades.
If your grade is an A+ then put it as A+
Abbreviation is a minor issue don't let it bother you too much. Abbreviate it if you want. The other suggestion of fitting in as much as possible is fine as well. I don't think AADSAS and the schools will bug you about it. Concentrate on getting your transcripts with matching forms, LORs with matching forms, and a strong personal statement completed and sent.

ya, you can't put 90 and if you do, then they convert it on their own.
I think.

Is that just an example or is 90 really an A+ at your school?
Yes, my school system:
90+ : A+
85-89: A
and so on.


And actually I put 90 on grade and A+ on AADSAS grade.
Under grade, there was two options which are letter grade and numerical value. I had to pick either option, but not both.

Since my school uses both numerical value and letter grade,
should I put A+ instead of 90?

Is that a Canadian grading scale or something? For me a 92 is an A- (3.7).....so you a 90 is an A+ (4.3). How can that be?

If those are Canadian schools, that explains the crazy high GPAs for Canadian dental schools.

If not, then I should have gone to a different undergrad school.

I thought I was running out of room to write the course title in as well, then I noticed it was because I was copying (Control-C) from my transcript to the form, it turns out when it was on two seperate lines it was not grabbing the entire title. So I did it in seperate portions.

This may or may not be your problem but it helped me figure it out.

Wow, since when has a 90 and above ever been considered an A+??? Talk about some serious grade inflation... unless of course, the courses at your school are just that difficult (I can think of about 3-5 schools in the U.S. that might qualify under that category)...

I believe you have to put the GPA using the scale that AADSAS provides (4.3 = A+, 4.0 = A etc). You don't use the scale according to your school.

I called AADSAAS and they told me to put the letter grade on my transcript as my ADSAAS grade...

In some Canadian schools, even getting above an 80 in certain courses is very hard.
