Grades are a strong indication of student quality and potential. Maclean’s presents two measures of entrance grades: the overall grade averages of incoming first-year students and a breakdown by ranges. Other measures on the following pages include the percentage of first-year students who return for a second year and the proportion who graduate in a reasonable time.
