I've always been surprised to see high GPAs frequently posted, but I looked at an American course the other day and a bonus 30% was available via extra credit. It seems perfectly reasonable to get near 100 points if 130 points are available. Was 30% an aberration?

I have a BSc in Business Administration from a College in Boston, and there was absolutely no extra credit available for any of the courses I was enrolled in ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

I’m convinced that there is a good deal of variability in terms of grades received and required effort at any undergraduate program, though. It’ll always be possible for students to get the same diploma/degree, even at the same school, while investing significantly different amounts of time/work.

Fortunately, to some extent at least, the points I mentioned will be reflected in the transcript.
