Hey everyone, I have a quick question regarding CASPA GPA standardization, I'm not sure if anyone here can answer it but here we go:
On the CASPA website in the GPA section there is an area that says: "Why is my GPA different than the one on my transcripts?"
Then it states that one of the reasons is because: "CASPA’s numeric scale for letter grades may be different than the one used at your home institution."
Im currently a RN- when getting my BSN degree the institution does use a different grading scale than what is listed for CASPA. For the institution I attended the grading scale was:
A: 93-100, B: 86-92, C: 78-85.
Meanwhile it seems that CASPA uses the typical: A: 90-100, B: 80-90, C: 70-80.
So, considering all this do you think that CASPA would alter the GPA for my undergraduate BSN degree? If so, this would make a big difference in my GPA. Any insight on this would be a great help. Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply!
