NUS STUDENTS WORRIED GLOBAL GRADE INFLATION WILL AFFECT THEIR FUTURE JOB PROSPECTS

“The mean reported GPA for Harvard University’s class of 2015 is 3.64, just below an A-” – The Harvard Crimson

“The average CAP at NUS is about 3.4, which is approximately a B” – NUS Provost Blog

Yet, given how our average grade in NUS is a full 2 grades lower than those of top universities, how are we expected to compete fairly with these applicants?
