For example a B- is worth 2.7 points, a B is worth 3 points, and a B+ is worth 3.3 points.</p><p>Fifty two percent of students interviewed in an MSA survey said they disagreed with the existing system, causing the MSA to look into a change to a flat grading system.</p> Thu, 18 Oct 2012 13:54:20 +0000 Doug Hoffmann 23022 at http://kbia.org Missouri Student Association talks with MU about changing university's grading system
