Do most professors out there curve, give extra credit, or have a wacked out grading scale (ie: A>80, 70>B>80, etc.)? I have heard that more often than not these professors are in place. The Orgo professor I have is new and has never taught before.... needless to say the class is a struggle. 45 started the clas and only 19 survived through the whole Drop/Withdrawl period. the averages for the two tests have been 50 and 59!!!! Amazing huh? I have consistantly scored 35 points above the average, but I am still wondering! Is this just the reality of the situation? Thanks for humoring my query.
