Hi!
I am applying to Texas dental schools through TMDSAS. For the section where you have to enter your coursework, you have to choose between, for example, A+, A, A-. The school I go to does the A,A- system and I got an A in one of my classes, but how would I choose between A and A+?
Thank you

It doesn't matter, because on TMDSAS grade calculations, an A, an A-, and an A+ all count the same, 4.0
TMDSAS ignores all pluses and minuses when calculating grades

@hm5369 I'm editing to add, list your grades exactly as they appear on your transcript. TMDSAS will do the calculation!

You record it in TMDSAS exactly as it appears in the transcript regardless of what system your school uses. Although GPA calculation by TMDSAS will ignore - and +, you still have to record it with - and + if that's how it looks on the transcript TMDSAS will receive when validating your score, otherwise it will possibly cause delays in your application!
