    I've got two ochem finals (one lab, one lecture) in the next 24 hours; the lab is tonight.

    If I do well on both, I'll get A's for the semester. If I do not so great, I'll get B's for the semester. There's really no way I'll end up with a C for either class unless I don't show up.

    The difference in my sGPA is a 3.43 (with both B's) and a 3.54 (with both A's). Is there a huge difference between a 3.43 and a 3.54 sGPA? The stress of needing A's in both is killing me right now..

    1. Yes that's a giant difference
    2. Stressing isn't going to make any difference. Just do your best. It's all you can do

    Just relax and do what you need to. You've been doing well and studying (I hope), so you'll be fine. Stop scaring yourself.

    If 4-5 credits can bump your GPA by 0.1 points, you have so much college left that you'll be able to pull it off either way.
    Just do what you can, and next semester don't put yourself in this situation.

    On the plus side, at least they cover similar material!

    Edit: Somehow missed OPs update. Ah, well.
