How do I find my CAS GPA?
CAS uses the same process to calculate your GPA as your undergraduate institution, with some (small) exceptions. CAS simply multiplies each of your grades by the number of credits for that class, adds them all up, and then divides by the total number of credits. Voila! GPA.
Do law schools look at your transcript?
Next to your LSAT score, your GPA is the most important thing on your law school application. Unlike your LSAT score, though, your GPA has another facet to it: your transcript. Whether your transcript has a positive or negative effect on your application depends on what’s on it.
Do online classes look bad on transcripts?
Yes, they will. And you are required to show attempted credit wherever you apply for college. So if you fail an online course, you still have to show the college that you failed it as it will be on your high school transcript.
Is pass or fail better?
Traditional grading systems are based on letter grades. Each percentage is associated with a letter, as you likely already know from your experience in school. But when you take a class as pass/fail, you receive a pass for any grade higher than a D. In some universities, they are more strict.
Can I fail my final and still pass?
If your school states that your final grade is based on the final exam only, then the answer is yes, you can fail if you fail the exam. If your school has a different policy and if you have done really well during the school year and you fail your exam, then it may not mean that you fail the course.
Is 60 a good mark at university?
When you start at university, any mark over 50% is a great grade. Getting a mark over 50% means that you are beginning to understand the difficult work of your degree. Getting over 60% is excellent because it means you have demonstrated a deep knowledge of your subject to the marker.
