I've heard the some universities are harder to get GPA than another university, and that A from a university is almost the same as a B from another one. I've also heard that when you apply for med school, the selection committee look at your GPA as well as your school to calculate your ACTUAL mark compared to others..


Is this true?

If it is, then does any body know how the calculation is made? (like is there somthing like a online calculator that I could look at?)do you know specific numbers for each university? (like queens life sci 80 = western biomed 90 ?)

If it is not, then why doesn't everyone just pick the easiest university?
