Canadian vs UK grading systemWatch
I'm kind of confused here how the UK grading system works
Now I've seen many universities in the UK saying that they may accept people with a Lower second-class honours, a 2.2; thing is what is the 2.2? Wiki says it's a 3 - 3.3 GPA in the US (which means the same for Canada)
While another source said that the Canadian equivalent of a 2.2 is a C+ (2.5).....
Which one is correct?
And yes I'm a low GPA hopeful
Need more help on going postgrad?
1st = A or 70%+
2:1 = B or 60-69%
2:2 = C or 50-59%
3rd = D or 40-49%
It would make a lot of sense for a 2:2 to correlate to a C grade as that's what it technically is here.

When in doubt, check directly with Admissions Offices and be sure to ask about specific courses. Entry requirements can differ across courses in the same department.
A+/A = 1st
A-/B+/B/B- = 2:1
C+/C/C- = 2:2 (etc.)
But as has been mentioned, it differs depending on the university and it's best to check with them directly. Also, I don't know what courses you're applying for, but if they say they may accept a 2:2 usually that means there need to be some kind of extenuating circumstances to make up for the lower grade. Again though, this depends on the university so check with them!
