    Cutoffs vary by course.

    Thanks, but do you know the percentages? And what would be the cutoff for a core class, like Calculus?

    Happen to have a KP kid standing at my shoulder:

    100 to 90 is an A
    89-80 B
    79-70 C
    69-60-D

    Its up to the Prof. on the minuses and pluses

    Don't understand what you mean by cut off. Some courses have a 70 to pass because they are professional courses for STCW requirements. An STCW is what everyone has to have to sail.

    Just remember..... "D is Done"
