So I am taking a 5 week Biochem class this summer and we got our first test back last week. I kid you not the average in a class of 100+ was 47 out of 100. There was 1 B, 2 Cs, and the rest were 65 or below!! So after class a couple of people went up to talk to the professor to see if there would be a curve...(the proff. speaks poor English and it took a while for them to get their question across and then longer for him to explain his answer) the end results was he does not curve and he was pissed that they asked him. I figured he was just pissed off because the grades were so poor so I swung by his office a couple days latter to ask again my self. Now I got one of the Cs after studying my butt off and so felt pretty good about my grade, believing that he was going to have to curve with grades so poor. So I talked to him about it and his belief is " I teach class well enough everyone should take A, you not study enough or not understand basic concepts, but I no curve becuase class intelligence level is too low". Well I just smiled and said OK and walked out but was pretty pissed off. Any one ever have an experience like this? How did it turn out? I know he technically does not have to curve but when the avg. is 47, obviously he is doing something wrong...is it worth bringing to the dean or is this pretty common?
