  1. UW doesn't use GPA. They will only matter if you apply to another program/school afterwards if it requires GPA. UW uses numerical grades so we don't have them converted to letters. Just calculate your average.

  4. Tell them that you have a 4.0. You should take advantage of their ignorance.

  5. Waterloo has a particular scheme.

    For the first digit:
    B - 7
    C - 6
    D - 5
    F - anything under 50

    For the second digit:
    + - 7-9
    None - 4-6
    - - 0-3

    Exception is for A, where 80-84 is an A-, 85-89 is an A, and 90+ is A+. You can find documentation for this on the back of old transcripts. This has been my experience in how a number of different courses have been marked.

    1. Eh. If they're paying for it in any significant way, they're entitled to know how it's going.
