  1. that with each new semester or quarter...that you would make sure this one went right and that you study your a$$ off so hard, just to make sure you ace every single class...and then after you get ur first midterm, you find out you scored 5 points above the average, and then your like Fuk this ****...and everything goes downhill from there :(

    I would LOVE to score 5 points above average in my P.Chem class :D . I figure that would give me about a 25%, though I'm not certain what the actual mean is (it's ~20%, I'm sure). That would give me a nice fat D+, instead of the E (our school's F) I currently have. It's a good thing he's going to drop that first test!

    Ok, can I b!tch any more about this class?!? :p

    To answer your original question... No, I usually just do my best and wait for the outcome.

    I totally hear you. I'm in OChem II and we just had our first test on NMR/IR. I know that this is going to be the easiest test of the semester, and I'm still pretty sure I F-ed it up! Now the whole semester is playing catch-up.

    Oh, also, our Physics II teacher came in on Thursday and said "I've graded 95% of your tests, and let me tell you, they're absolutely horrible". Needless to say, we all felt pretty good after that! (He hasn't taught a non-majors class in several years and I think he's surprised by just how bad we are in physics!)
     
  7. well, 5 points above the average is very good in medical school.. At most schools 5 points above the average will give you a grade of Pass, and 5 points below the average (and often 10 points below the average since the averages are so high) will get you a grade of Pass. I love this "P=M.D." thing; this should definitely make you guys feel better about med school! :)
