Maybe you shouldve tried harder on your regular assignments instead of being a slack ass. If you can get a 98 on the exam you can get a B in the class. Quit being a puss.

Joey Peters
12-18-2008, 04:50 PM
its because i was slacking the whole first quarter

Chrith
12-18-2008, 04:51 PM

Joey Peters

I hate when that shit happens! You are so close to a B but what nothing to show for it but a C.

Ive had some teachers that will look over a paper or assignment again and see if they could find somewhere that they could add the points.

Then i have other teachers that are strict the the scale and tell ya "sorry...thats the cut off and you missed it."

You needed a .76 to get a B.

Did the girl have a 79.6 or a 79.1?

If she had a 79.6 I can see how that is fair.

79.1; 79.5 automatically rounds up.

Joey Peters
12-18-2008, 05:30 PM
the girl had a 79.1 i have a 79.24, he gave her .4 so she would get a b, but he wont bump mine up .26 so i can get a b

zeus

w grow a set and actually talk to him and see if there is any work you can do for extra credit, it will sound more mature than just asking for free points.

DrD

Yeah, I wasn't sure what he meant.

the girl had a 79.1 i have a 79.24, he gave her .4 so she would get a b, but he wont bump mine up .26 so i can get a b

skimalot321, that may be discrimination unless she did some sort of extra credit or you missed a lot of days in class and she came everyday or something. Before you do anything make sure you know if she did any sort of extra work or anything like that.

Joey Peters

i told him i would do anything, write essays, stay after school, anything, he said no, its not that i dont come to school, its just that i dont do good in the class. i have skipped wrestling all week to study for this exam to get a B and now he wont let me do anything to bring it up

then ask him why she bumped her up

FERPA laws forbid a teacher from discussing a students grade with parties not concerned.

Chalk your C up to experience and buckle down next semester. Thats a hell of a lot better than some people do in their first semester especially considering it was Honors. You're a freshman so there is still time to bring up your cumulative GPA.

zeus
12-18-2008, 05:50 PM
yea and the only grade that rreally matters is the final

Ammy
12-18-2008, 05:52 PM
Who isn't in honors these days, seriously?
A C isn't good, do anything you can to bump it. Harass him until he cracks.

Joey Peters
12-18-2008, 05:54 PM
tmr is the last day, and i dont have his class because of his exams

Ammy
12-18-2008, 05:57 PM
go in before school, like a half hour early. Show him you really need it and want it.

Joey Peters
12-18-2008, 06:02 PM
good idea

HemmerTime
12-18-2008, 06:09 PM
I had a teacher like that last year. I got an 89.4 and she wouldnt give me a b. Was my only b too. But yea, just ask him why he rounded that girls up. Say you'll tell the principal if all else fails

I actually feel bad for you. If its a male teacher I would ask him to give the gentlemans' B here. If he is cool he will give you the bump, if he is a dick and says no you should ask him why he looks down on gentlemanly values and beginning plotting how to get revenge that can;t be linked to you. I suggest subscribing him to gay twink magazines to be delivered to the school.

If its a chick, beg her for an extra credit assignment and if that fails cry.

Joey Peters
12-18-2008, 06:28 PM
its a man, and i love your idea dzan

Stop complaining, and welcome to highschool. You should be able to get a teacher to crack if you have the huge leverage of him giving the other girl a bigger bump than you need. Look for errors on all your papers, it can take only a point or two.

or hide an open milk carton in his desk before break.

I almost got suspended for the milk carton thing last year. Some kid went out of town for a week and half, and somebody knew his locker combo. Everyday, people put milk, silverware, and food in the locker. He got so pissed off he told on us like a beotchhhhh, but when he calmed down he said it was fine so we wouldn't get suspended.

be happy. an 80 here is still a C. 10 point grading scale is for pussies.

Also, I think this serves as a lesson for you. Don't be lazy in class and think you can get away with it. I'm almost positive there was probably some extra credit that u didn't take advantage of during the regular semester, or some classwork that u were like "ahhh fuck it" with. Your teacher is simply trying to teach u that that type of behavior can come back and bite you in the ass.

Sorry if I sound harsh, but after 4 years of high school I have gotten sick of kids that say "ahhh fuck it" to doing class work, neglect assignments, and end up with good grades by simply working the teacher over, turning shit in weeks after due dates, etc., simply because the teacher folds to their persuasion. Its a crappy habit to get into, so let this be a lesson.

Unfortunately, school in general favors students who are good workers and intelligent, not JUST intelligent (as it seems the case with you, based on your exam)

Yeah, your guys grading scale kicks ours straight in the ass. A 86-93 is a B, so you miss maybe 2 questions on a 25 question quiz and you're already at a B.

Biologys pretty easy for me though since she gives us an unbelieveable amount of extra credit oppurtunities so I can't complain.

Ammy
12-19-2008, 04:29 AM
Hahaha god that sucks.
How does that grading scale make any sense at all?

I loved taking college classes in High school because of the 10 point grading scale.

90-100 A
80-89 B
70-79 C
60-69 D

and some teachers like to mix in + and - grades so it makes it kinda confusing.

polska
12-19-2008, 06:59 AM
A 100-85
B 84-75
C 74-65
anything lower is failing :)

well here on the internet, my work is open internet, thus allowing me to say "hey fuck grades, i got google" and maintain 4.0. fuck you all

except for mid terms and finals

YellowSnow
12-19-2008, 08:20 AM
Same shit happened here. in precalc I had an 89.86 and AP chem I had an 88.94. On the finals I got a 89.1 and a 88. I was so pissed. I had worked my ass of to get a 90 and I fucking miss it by .9 of a grade point.

CasterTown
12-19-2008, 08:59 AM
Haha, HS...

In math last quarter the grading scale was as follows:

80-100% A
60-80% B
40-60% C


I remember seeing single digit scores on midterms

jeremyj
12-19-2008, 09:05 AM
wow wtf that scale is scary as hell... if a 40 is a C... I imagine I would be getting like a 25 on my final lol

edit: what math class?

Joey Peters
12-19-2008, 02:47 PM
so i went in this morning and talked to him

my grade is now a 79.6
