Princeton Proposes Limits to Grade Inflation
New regulations would set a cap of 35 percent A's in all undergraduate courses at
Princeton. At Harvard, the university's undergraduate program has capped at 60%
the number of students who can graduate with honors.
A comparison of six Ivy League universities and Stanford reveals that Princeton's
grade distribution is hardly exceptional and reflects Ivy League and national trends.
