    Hey everyone

    I just transfered from a CC, which used a letter grading system. Now that I am at a 4 year university, which uses the number scale (4.0, 3.5, 3.0,....1.0), I'm not so sure about my overall performance. I asked my professor what does a 3.5 translate to as a letter grade, I had no idea. Can someone out there break it down for me:( .

    Holla

    Usually the grade breakdown for universities and AMCAS is:
    4.0=A
    3.7=A-
    3.3=B+
    3.0=B
    2.7=B-
    2.3=C+
    2.0=C

    You can see where it goes from here. A 3.5 GPA falls in between and B+ and A- average.:cool:

    The grading scale differs fron university to university. At my school the scale is broken down like this:

    A=4.0
    B+=3.5
    B=3.0
    C+=2.5
    ...

    and so on. We don't have any -'s in our scale. So a 3.5 according to our scale is a straight B+.

    Hope this helps.
