Medical and dental schools calculate science grade point averages (GPAs) in addition to noting a student’s overall GPA.
Commonly referred to as the BCPM/BCP GPA because of the courses used to calculate it, the science GPA includes all coursework in:
- Math (includes Statistics)
While your overall GPA will be listed on your academic transcript and will be updated automatically each time grades are posted, it is the student's responsiblity to calculate their BCPM/BCP GPA.
We suggest using the provided BCPM Calculator Spreadsheet or another GPA calculator of your choice to calculate your BCPM/BCP.
If you have questions about the courses that fall in each category, see the AAMC Course Classification Guide (PDF) for medical schools.
