Grading Scale

 

The plus/minus grading system will be used to assign grades according to the following scale:

      223-230 = A+     200-206 = B+     177-183 = C+     154-160 = D+
      214-221 = A      191-199 = B      168-176 = C      145-153 = D      0-137 = F
      207-213 = A-     184-190 = B-     161-167 = C-     138-144 = D-

The grade cut-offs may be lowered on the basis of the point distribution (i.e. the final grades might be curved).
