CR/NCR due to Covid-19 *Urgent*

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Is it true that the option of “credit no crediting” a course means that it won’t contribute towards your course load? For example, in winter 2020, our school allowed us unlimited CR/NCR options due to COVID-19. I had a course load of 5 courses, and I CR/NCR’d 2 courses. Does this mean that after the CR/NCR, my course load would be since as 3 courses instead of 5? Will this semester not count towards the B2 years? I’m super worried, can anyone please help me out? 

Thanks.

If you passed the course I'm pretty sure it counts towards the credits in your B2 but they just won't use those courses as part of your GPA calculation. So if you took 5 and two were CR/NCR it would still count as 5 but only those other 3 courses would be used as part of your GPA calculation.

As long as you had a full load both semesters it will count towards your B2. CR/NCR grades will not count towards the course load requirement (minimum 8 in a given year) for a year to be considered in your B2. For example, I did 5 courses in the fall (all graded) and 3 in winter (all mandatory CR/NCR) and that year will not count because I only have 5 grades they can use.

Not OP but I have a follow-up question to this (if you don't mind). Last school year (2019-2020), I CR/NCR two 0.5 courses which left me with seven grades/courses, however one was a full year so would that amount to eight total and therefore count towards B2 for Queen's? I hope that makes sense.

I think you should be safe then.... you will want to check with Queen's though.

    • I'm starting this topic for students who have been admitted to the GPLLM programme. Hope to get to know some of you before the start of the semester! 
    • I've got similar stats but have zero clue either, but good luck, I'm rooting for you! Will follow thread in case anyone can help chance us 
    • You could totally see it as a crappy way to find out that your chances might not be in your favour. I'm more of the foolish optimist that would take it as a helpful early sign for you to realign your hopes for the U of A. I totally agree that you should check the previously admitted scores and see where you are and gauge accordingly. Waiting anxiously is really exhausting, especially when you don't know when you're going to hear back. Good on you for applying broadly, so many universities are sending out their offers later in the year. It's literally out of your hands and because we can't control it, it can bring on this helpless feeling. I went through a rejection year and while I was worried waiting, I went ahead and slowly planned for each outcome. I was graduating during COVID so I remade my resume, took a public speaking course, made a list of all the shows I was going to binge, reflected whether my current volunteer and work was relevant in law, etc. Then I got rejected, shamelessly gave myself time to ball my eyes out and then started on with my plan. It really helped knowing there was something I was ready to do right after being rejected. Really put me in perspective and when I applied this year, you bet I did the same thing. Not saying that this will happen, of course, I hope you kick ass under the holistic section! Just thought it might be worth to share as it definitely helped me be more calm during these uneasy times.      
    • My friend just wrote her LSAT in January and received an offer second week of February so they're definitely still accepting
    • Accepted this morning via email to the Dual JD program! cGPA: 3.65 LSAT: 157 (Jan) 2 BAs, did a summer abroad, lots of ECs with minority groups, community development, some social work-related employment experience  As a note to some of you lurkers anxiously checking these pages every morning (AKA me) please don't worry! Those emails you're waiting for will show up in your inbox one way or another, so take a deep breath, drink some water, have a snack even. You got this.
