McMaster grade conversion
Posted 31 October 2006 - 10:27 PM
This is mostly for MAC students. Does anyone know how to convert McMaster's 12 grading system to the 4 point system or percentages? If you do, what is a 10.2?

Mac is in the number 7 column. I have never seen a Mac transcript, but according to OLSAS they convert the letter grade to a GPA 4 scale. Do you have letters on your transcript too?
To clarify, OLSAS does NOT look at your final CGPA (10.2 average). They will take each course's grade and convert it.

A = 3.9
A- = 3.7
B+ = 3.3
B = 3.0
Convert each grade on your transcript as shown above. You should be around 3.7. Some schools use similar scales, but with slight differences. I believe U of A uses the same scale, but with A valued at 4.0 (The standard 4.0 scale, not this absurd A=3.9 OLSAS scale). All American schools, and I believe Dal in Canada, use the same scale except with A+ = 4.33 and A=4.0, and all +/- grades .33/.67 instead of .3/.7.

The chart is available in your OLSAS account or if you have no account yet, go to the OMSAS page, which uses the same scale in their FAQ.
