UFV Trades Entrance Scholarships

Calculation of GPA

Calculation of Entrance Scholarship GPAs are based on grade 11 and 12 courses.

Provincial Examinations and Approved Grade 12 Courses

UFV does not require provincial examinations, but high school graduation requires provincial exams in some subjects. If you wrote provincial exams, the higher of your school mark or your blended grade (school mark and provincial exam mark combined) is used for GPA calculation.
