Courses Currently taking graduate course as an Undergraduate

  1. Oct 23, 2012 #1
    I am currently taking graduate algebra as an undergraduate (junior) in University of Toronto, and I just took a midterm today. Since I am an undergraduate, the grade matters. In order to get a good chance to go into graduate schools for Mathematics in Canada and USA, is it must have to get a A or A+ in graduate courses as an undergraduate? Or, is A- alright? (or should I get at least an average grade on that course as an undergraduate competing with graduate students?)

    I don't know a whole lot about this, as I didn't have that sort of option at my undergrad school and I am a master's student at a rather average state university. But I would assume that an A- would certainly be fine, and most likely a B would be fine as well, since you are an undergrad taking grad-level coursework. I mean, we are only expected to keep up a B average as grads, and I think they expect less, not more, of the undergrads. But like I said, I am not, probably, at the sort of school you're planning on applying to.
