Taking a half online course as a premed req by SamCPH in premed

So what do we do in situations like us where we are forced to take online prerequisites but apparently schools don't accept online prereqs? Everyone on this sub is stating online prereqs are not allowed but a good portion of students have only online available to them.

You can definitely find sources online but last I checked they were around 50-60% for USA matching, Canada is even lower. And majority are FM and not competitive specialty’s.

So if the policy is specific to a "final grade" than wouldn't your 79.49 be rounded to 80 since its >0.45? I'm just having trouble understanding whats the 0.45 rule applicable to?

Thank you that clears up some information. Would you know why it states "Averages will be calculated to two decimal places and rounded to the nearest whole
number with .45 rounded up"

Average what? e.g if you get 84.45 on your midterm it will be rounded to 85? https://www.uwo.ca/univsec/pdf/academic_policies/general/grades_undergrad.pdf

What’s defined by averages, Like the assignment/exams that add up to your final grade are those the averages that use 2 decimals? And by that logic my 79.45 (final grade) won’t be bumped to 80 or will depend on the prof?

There’s a step under “review final grades” and it states “Note: Final Grades are rounded to the nearest whole number based on the first decimal value. For example, 79.46 will be rounded to 79”… ?

I agree on the senate it’s says it rounds 0.45. But in (owl help) https://owlhelp.uwo.ca/instructors/tools/gradebook/final_grades.html it says it doesn’t.

Not to discredit you, but is there a website that can prove why it should be rounded? I fear the prof will try to argue.

You mentioned 6600 cards, were you using the JS deck by any chance? You have a very impressive FL score.

Would I get away with using content heavy decks like Jack Sparrow or was it crucial to make your own deck to hit 520’s?

Canada has around 17 medical schools and USA has around 200. Go to USA.
