When I enter my grades from a US institution, my academic record comes up as non-convertible. What can I do?
American grades are not automatically converted by the online application, as OMSAS must first review your transcript to determine the applicable scale. Once this is done, you will be able to view your application data in the Verification of Application Data report available online.
The OMSAS Conversion Chart was created in collaboration with the Ontario medical schools, to put all applicants on an “even playing field”, so to speak. The OMSAS calculated GPA may or may not agree with the GPA calculated by individual institutions. The medical schools are well aware of this, and do receive all applicant transcripts so as to see full details of their academic record.
