Yeah I think 2.7 is average for commerce/life sciences/engineering/physics/math. I can't really comment on humanities because I didn't take that many humanities classes. But I would say 2.7 is not too bad if you put it in perspective...

Dropped out of high school needing 2 credits. Made them up in adult school. GPA was probably around 2.5 when all was said & done with no university credits (all general courses) and no OAC.

College GPA 3.1-3.5
Uni GPA ~3.1

From my undergraduate degree I graduated in the top 10% of my graduating class (cumulative of all undergraduate years). Final year was top 4%. Does not convert to North American GPA (although I have always kind of wondered what constitutes a top 10% GPA in Canada). I was at a European university that is generally ranked alongside Canada's best-regarded universities (Alberta, Toronto, UBC, McGill).

what school was that? at UofT I believe you need a 3.10 to graduate with honours
Both of those seem really low to me. My university required "a grade point average of at least 3.60 over the last 10 full-course equivalents taken at the University, with no more than one "D" or "D+" grade and no failures."

High School: ~90% don't really remember

Undergraduate:
-Cumulative: 3.684
-Final year: 3.811

Is graduating with honours like distinction and high distinction? I don't think UofT has honours does it?

I know UTSC has distinction if your CGPA is between 3.2 and 3.49, and high distinction if it's above 3.5.

EDIT: nvm I think there is honours list for those who graduate with 3.7+ in final year.

There is a honours list every year. If you get 3.7+ or higher, you are on it.

Convocation for me was a bit of a shocker...friends/people who I thought that were smart getting no distinction at all.

Have done two degrees at UofT

Undergraduate CGPA: 3.76
Masters CGPA: 3.7

However, it was in Humanities, so it doesn't mean too much :lol:

I'd probably get like 2.0 in Maths/Sciences

University CGPA at around 3.2 (got distinction) at UofT. But honestly, it doesn't mean much. Most graduate schools look at your last 2 years of university.

I'd say my last 2 years were about 3.5ish. I was in lifesci btw.

Frankly, can you guys share experiences -- big picture and/or minutes -- about how to keep up with such high GPA from freshman until graduation acquiring the master degrees?

For undergrad overall I graduated 0.3% off the Dean's list (stupid first year computer course!). In my major I had a 4.0. In grad school (Master's and PhD Programs) I had straight As.
