happens to everyone, just try to learn from it :)
you'll get used to it.
It only gets better from here!
Just watch, OP is going to say it was an 85...
Suck it up princess it doesn't matter because when you graduate you won't have a job anyway.
@4: I imagine that's the sort of thing that you would do.
OP: What course was it? If you don't mind me asking.
Happened to me last semester and I was really upset with myself, but I studied really hard for my finials and pulled my mark back up and even exceeded my expectations. Sometimes there are just rough midterms or you have a horrible test day. Don't let it get you down because that only makes it worse. Good luck & study hard :)
well should be easy for you to go up from there.
@4: This is OP. It was an 82. Fuck you.
I would be pissed with anything under 85. I know I can do better.
wth are you complaining about? I wish I could get at least an 80 on an exam.It's only one assessment, you will make up for it.
your social life must suck if it was an 82
14 justifies his dumb-assess with a social life. LOL
^ you're 14. what makes you think i'm a dumbass though? i'm doing just fine thanks
Marks are relative to the course. If you received only mid 80s for some psychology, sociology, or other kiddy arts course then hang your head in shame.
^i'd love to see you take a third year research course in psych and get a 90....
#5 speaks the truth (for a large portion of UW students anyways)
#16 - the last person I heard who said this was an engineering student in PACS 202 a few terms ago. We mutually decided to compete in the course. He received a 68% on the midterm and roughly the same in the course overall. Congrats.
Real OP here, it was a 64
& a CS course
It really doesn't depend on the course, but on the amount of work you put into it.If you worked hard and studied, then there is no reason to be upset.On the other hand, if you're upset about mid-80s and you hardly study, then fuck you.
lol i got a 29 in math 128, thats lower than if i just didnt write the exam, quit your bitching
@16 For the record, there are plenty of stupid engineers. If you forced every arts student to take a 3rd year math course, and every math/engineering student to take a 3rd year arts course, I'd wager the average mark for the math/engineering students would be around double the arts average.I'll admit this is partially due to the nature of the programs, where psychology is easier for a novice to get into, but maybe that just further proves my point
It's okay, I studied hard for my biotechnology midterm, feeling like I aced it after I wrote it and ended up getting a 61. That's the worst ever. Then there was the midterm I wrote today for my elective (classical mythology)... which I spent only a night studying for and I left that exam feeling like I was castrated...But there was also this other time, for organic chemistry, I got a 45 on the midterm, then ended with a 94 because I did so well on my final that the prof decided to take the midterm off. Point is, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Sometimes you know you killed it, and sometimes you get slapped in the face. Just don't give up.
@24 - Yes, of course. The Arts student generally wouldn't possess the foundational knowledge required to succeed in those extremely objective fields. Arts courses stress critical and analytical thinking in specific scholarly perspectives. No doubt Engineers with some work would be able to perform on an early level Psych exam, for example. The fact is that Arts students will generally out perform the Engineering students in those classes. Hence, why Arts students go on to pursue careers in those fields and are accepted into it.
@6: Nah, I barely study so 80+ is OK.
@25 I am going to call bullshit on your post. If a prof is going to take off a recorded mark then they shouldn't be a prof. This is why our education system is absolute shit. Arbitrary marking? Complete disgrace to the educational profession.
