CurvePosted: October 10, 2011 Filed under: All's Well That Ends Well 1 Comment
My physical science class has been giving me a headache. The tests are on a curve, mainly because the teacher insists that the average will be about 60% regardless of how he writes the test. I just took the second test over the weekend.
On test #1, I got a 68. Miserable, right? I think so. On the curve it was a B.
On test #2, I got a 74. I actually felt like compared to the first test, 74 was really not too shabby. And guess what? On the curve it was…an A!
Thank you, classmates, for understanding the material even less than I did.
Welcome to the sciences. Class test averages in many of my classes were around 45%. You get used to it. ;)
