Reference > http://gemsas.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/GEMSAS-GPA-guidelines_v2.pdfThank you so much! I'm a bit confused as it said 'passed subjects will be ignored in GPA calculations' but does that mean instead subjects further than the last 3 years will be calculate?? For example if I did a 4 year degree and 2 subjects from my last year were passed from a non-graded pass system, will two subjects from the first year be calculated in the gpa instead to fill it up?
A key degree may contain subjects that are assessed on a pass/fail basis. Typically, where these subjects have been passed, they will be included in the GPA year (i.e. their credits will count towards the year of study), but they will not affect the overall GPA. However, where these subjects comprise more than 37.5% of the GPA year, the GPA will be referred to the medical school for them to calculate a GPA."
So if you do a 4 year degree and 2 (out of 8) subjects from last year are ungraded, the Final Year GPA will be the total grade points of 6 subjects divided by 6. But the Final Year still comprises 8 subjects, you don't move 2 subjects from another year into it.
Note the number of ungraded can only be up to 37.5% = 3 out of 8 subjects in each year, otherwise it will be passed to the med school to decide.
