WES EVALUATION TERMS

Evaluation Scope: World Education Services (WES) evaluates only formal educational credentials issued by duly recognized educational institutions. WES does not evaluate professional experience. WES evaluations are based upon the best information and resources available to professional evaluators. WES evaluations are offered as non-binding advisory opinions.

Credential Authentication: Evaluations prepared by WES specify the manner in which each document was authenticated. WES authenticates academic records by one of the following methods. The method used depends on what is appropriate for the specific country and level of education.

• by requiring that official transcripts be sent to WES directly by the institutions or examination bodies that issued them;

OR

• by requiring that official transcripts be authenticated by the relevant government authority (e.g. Ministry of Education) before being sent directly to WES;

OR

• by verifying documents submitted by individuals by sending them back to the institutions/examination bodies that issued them and obtaining a written confirmation of their authenticity.

Detailed country-by-country document requirements can be viewed at www.wes.org/ca/required-documents/

Grades/ Quality Points: WES uses an alphabetic system to identify grades. The standard WES conversion of letter grades into a numerical scale/quality points is as follows: A = 4.00; A-=3.67; B+ = 3.33; B = 3.00; B- = 2.67; C+ = 2.33; C = 2.00; C- = 1.67; D+ = 1.33; D = 1.00; F = 0; F* = (see below); R* = (see below)

• “F*” indicates a course that was failed initially, but passed on a subsequent attempt. It is not included in the GPA calculation.

• “R*” indicates a course that was passed initially, but was retaken for grade improvement. It is not included in the GPA calculation.

• “Pass”is not included in the Cumulative Grade Point Average. For study completed at the undergraduate level, it corresponds to at least a “C” in Canada. For graduate and professional study, “Pass” corresponds to at least a

“B”.

Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated by multiplying the credits per course by the quality points for the grade for that course, repeating this procedure for each course, totaling the credit hour quality points thus obtained, and dividing by the total number of credits.

Course Level Designation: The designation “U” (upper) or “L” (lower) against a course at the undergraduate level is an indication of its level. Credit Recognition and Transfer: The course-by-course analysis represents a breakdown of post-secondary study in terms of Canadian semester credits and grade equivalents. One semester credit is equal to one lecture hour each week of the semester. The number of credits accepted for transfer to a degree program or towards a professional license in Canada may vary from those listed in this report in accordance with the policies of the receiving educational institution or licensing body.

Evaluations for Professional Licensing/Certification:WES does not assess professional aptitude or experience. Only authorities qualified in the profession can determine whether an individual meets requirements for licensing or to practice the profession in Canada.
