    Hi,

    Can someone Plesse explain, how the UK master grade work?

    70% is an A? Are there any 100% Grades?

    I would assume that 70-100% is an A.

    At Don Bosco, we had a similar grading scale.

    For evaluation purposes, ECE's grade equivalent is:
    70-100: A
    50-69: B
    35-49: C

    It's not a percentage. And, typically, it is not an ABCF grade.

    I have experience with only one UK uni. A 70 meant you passed with distinction. A 50-69 meant you passed. Below 50 and you did not pass.

    Again, nothing to do with percentages. And no letter grades.

    Baylor University has a UK to US Grading conversion.
    UK: 75 - 100 = US: A+
    UK: 70 - 74 = US: A
    UK: 64 - 69 = US: A-
    UK: 60 - 63 = US: B+
    UK: 55 - 59 = US: B
    UK: 50 - 55 = US: B -
    UK: 46 - 49 = US: C+
    UK: 43 - 45 = US: C
    UK: 38 - 42 = C -
    UK: 35 - 37 = D
    UK: 0 - 34 = Fail

    The lowest grade on my MBA is Management Financial Accounting is 47%; it is a failure for graduate school. So, I have to retake the final exam to boost up my score. I have never heard or seen any receive any final grade, assignment, or degree with more than 78%.

    In LJMU, 70%-100% is "Distinction" and is considered as A in the American system.

    We have this

    <40% (R)
    40%+ (C)
    50%+ (B)
    60% (B+)
    70%+ (A)

  8. This is what my alma mater (i.e., the University of Chester) uses in their grad programs. However, it is slightly more nuanced for undergrad studies.
