Hey everyone,

I'm having a hard time finding how Saskatchewan converts other peoples GPA. Does anyone know where I can find the correct information. I got to school at UBC and we use a percentage/grade system but does UofS have the same kind of system where a 4.0 is above 85, 3.7 80-84, 3.3 76-79 etc.....can anyone confirm this?

^^^ Thanks but Mcmaster University is not the University of Sask. Just because you typed it into google doesn't always mean the first hit is the right answer, plus that gpa scale is the same as OLSAS. So anyways, can anyone else provide me with some knowledgable insight?

No need to lose our cool here, especially when someone is just trying to help. If you would turn your attention to the university's website, you would note the following: "Past experience indicates that as a general rule, successful applicants must have a grade point average of 3.4 or better on a 4-point scale (approximately a B+ average or 80% average) in pre-law studies"
