I have two questions:

  • How can I know which university/school uses Bell Curved Grading system,and which one doesn't?
  • Suppose, I have two acceptances from two schools (a) one applies Curved grading, and (b)another one doesn't. Is there any reason I should choose the one without curve so that I can be on the safe side?

There is simply no way to know, because there are no uniform grading standards within universities. I know that I do not enforce bell-curve grading, and neither do many of my colleagues, while others do.

Also, many universities do not recommend bell curve grading, because it makes grading more challenging, because technically you’d have to change lots of grades if you make a grading mistake. Instead, they recommend choosing one “fixed grade”—for instance, the mark between passing and failing—and the increment to the next level.
