I took a class with graduate students as an undergraduate student. The grading was on a curve and combined (as in graduate students were graded along with undergraduate students).
Is this normal in US universities as well? Won't the undergraduate students have a disadvantage competing against graduate students (pursuing 2nd year of Masters/PhD) for a good grade.
What ended up was:
1 A Grade
12 B Grades (7 of which went to graduate Students and 5 to undergraduate students)
20 C Grades
10 D Grades
3 E Grades
For a class of 25 graduate students and 21 undergraduate students.
