    I retook General Physics 1 this summer. First time around I got a C, this time I got a B.

    I would have gotten an A had I not missed a quiz. It's crazy that one quiz could drop me from an A to a B. It's my own fault, I overslept. The class was 8AM and I was up all night jerking around. I tried asking the instructor for a retake at the time but he wouldn't allow for it. Is there anything I can do about this quiz? Do I even have any options?

    Chill bruh. Do well in the rest of your classes. Trends matter infinitely more than one data point.

    The short answer: no.

    The professor had a clear policy regarding quizzes. You know what time the class is, and it wouldn't be fair for any other student if you professor decided to give you preferential treatment.

    Just as note to others who maybe reading this: retaking a class for a single or C or two is not the most efficient use of time, money, and resources towards MD
