GPA doesn't match? Is this common or is it an issue?

The calculated AADSAS GPA doesn't match the GPA on my transcript. Is it because they calculate it using a different method or did something go wrong?
I double and even triple checked I input all of my coursework info correctly and both of my transcripts have been sent in and received already.
Anybody else experience this?

Did you take any summer courses/transfer credits that you forgot to include in your calculations? Or any A+'s that count as 4.3's via aadsas i believe?

It's weird because my transfer courses all match perfectly with AADSAS in terms of GPA. At the 2nd institution where I completed my bachelors is where things start to get funny. Unless I got all A's (i.e. 4.0) in a certain semester then my GPA for each semester is lower by around .1-.15 points.

Also my cumulative GPA for that 2nd institution is lower by .08 points than what it should be. This same institution does +/- for all letter grades below an A. So whether you got a 90 or a 100 then you still end up with an A on your transcript.

If your colleges give A+s then your addsas gpa will decrease since A+s will drop down to As.
If your colleges give A-s then your addsas gpa will increase since A-s will bump up to As.
However your addsas gpa doesnt necessarily have to change especially if you have a mixture of both A+s and A-s since those grades can cancel.

Like I mentioned earlier, both of the institutions I went to only give out A's (without the +/- designation). However, every letter grade under an A gets the +/- designation (i.e. C-, C, C+, B-, B, B+, and then A).

So does what you just said also apply to these other letter grades? Because I've mostly got +'s for the other grades; so does AADSAS knock those down to simply a B or a C?
