grades

Postby Katie Phan 1K » Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:25 am

Does anyone know what the letter grades are in regards to percentages/points? There's no scale that I know of.

Dr. Lavelle said that a 50% is needed to pass, but I think the rest of the grades follow the same scale where 90-93% is an A-, 93-97% is an A, 97-100% is an A+, and the rest of the grades follow the same pattern? I'm not 100% sure but that's what I've been going off of.

I've heard this question be asked multiple times with no definitive answer. However, I know that Lavelle said that a 50% is needed for a C, so that is certain. For the rest of the grading, I am assuming that it follows the usual grade scale stated above until it is otherwise stated.

he hasn't really explained, the syllabus only states will need 50% to pass the course.

It is just the amount of point you earned out of 500 at the end of the quarter, but I have heard that the class average plays a part in final grades.

There's no curving we know of rn, but if there is curving of some kind, I think it would be your overall grade

The midterms aren't curved and they're all out of the 110 points. Im not sure about the grade distribution and percentages for As and Bs but we need at least 50% of the points to get a C.

I'm assuming it will follow normal UCLA grading, with 93-100 being an A. Aside from that, we need 50% of the poitns to pass the class.
