Ok, so tomorrow will mark 3 weeks of college for me.. So far this is how it goes. I am in the Honors college and they teach like a liberal arts college and teach education "liberally". I don't necessarily enjoy the topics or way of teaching I just joined to put on an application and you get a scholarship. However, one of my teachers told me that we don't get to know our grade until the very end but can guess what it is based on the Check +/- system. SO far I have gotten all check pluses. SO I guess that is good? Next, my other teacher told me (in his office hours) that I should be fine with grades.. He usually gives B to A- but hardly ever gives A's. Coming from him: "I don't even give myself an A!" My chemistry class is a night class and that in itself explains how it is. I love chemistry and understand it but she is extremely unclear and her and her TA are not on the same page. It is very frustrating that the TA has no idea what is going on and she is grading my stuff! Next, the class is not curved and I would have to average 90% on exams, 100% on labs, and 95% on HW and Quizes in order to get a 93% (A). It seems near perfection. I don't mind putting in more work in the class I love, but DANG! My photography class should be an A? I am stressing hard core about my situations. Can anyone help me out? I really will try hard to get an A but these professors really don't seem like they want to give them out! DO you think my chemistry teacher will curve in the end? It's very stressful; however, so far I have managed the workload but it has been extremely frustrating. THANKS GUYS!
