How will my transcript be evaluated externally?

Your Queen’s transcript is an important record of your academic achievements in university, but it is by no means the only indicator of your overall abilities: building a good resume and a network of individuals who can act as references is also very important.

Having said this, it is important to remember that those evaluating your transcript are likely to be looking at a lot more than just your GPA. They are going to be far more interested in such things as: what courses did you take? How long did you take to complete your degree? How consistent is the student’s performance?  How applicable are the skillsets and knowledge you have acquired as an undergraduate to the position/award to which you are applying?  The following links deal with some specific examples.
