Subject: Pharm Grade
> You almost made the cut, but missing 12 gave you a grade of 74 (after curving). You can retake the exam on Tuesday for a 75 if you better your performance. Sorry you didn't do better. Maybe you should stop by and we can go over the exam and see where you can better focus your study efforts. I want you to excell from here to the end ! Hang in there !
Okay....for the second time, I think I've stopped crying.
One point. One godsdamned point, after a 4-point curve. All I have to do is get one more question right, and I'll have my 75%
Exam average: 83, with a standard deviation of 11. That says something. Score range from 67 to 95 aftera four-point curve. If it weren't for the fact that my average in that class has just dropped from 75 to 74, which is sub-passing, I'd say "fuck it" and take the score.
But I can't. And that's the part that fscking well sucks.
I'm tired of having to dig and scrape for my grade in this class. Even in fscking pathology I'm passing with a little to spare. But pharm....
And he tries to be understanding. I'm apparently just stupid about drugs or something. Going to take him up on the retake (only the questions I missed, oh please God let it be only the questions I missed) and then settle down and talk to him, see if I can figure out what to do about the studying.
If I spent any more time studying, I wouldn't eat.
