    I remember it like yesterday. It was a (C) in a science class that I didn't know I had to attend for a grade because I also missed the first day and mainly showed up to turn in HW and do tests. I really have a hard time attending classes, I much rather last minute study from a text book.

    Aren't there T/F on the SATs that you kicked ass on? How did you still do so well there?!

    I've never gotten less than a 60%. I almost always score well on tests, even if I don't go to class and don't do the homework. I've been accused of cheating a couple times in my life because of this. I guess not that many people can perform calculus derivations on the fly, during an exam. /shrug
    Sounds familiar. I technically "took" college algebra four times. The first three times, I had this problem with showing up. :P The last time I took it, I worked with an engineering major who spent lunch breaks with me helping me understand it.

    I hate math. It's the only class that I have to work really hard in to only do okay. Other classes, I do well without the work.

    I had a math teacher give a test where well over half his class got below 50% and he commented that if you ansered all true or all false, people would have had a better grade. Granted it was full of trick questions.

    I think its in your head. As Usehername pointed out, you did rather well on the SATs.


    I got a 23/80 on a midterm once. But that test was really pressed for time, and the average was 33/80. There were actually several people who scored in the low teens and even one under 10.

    I ended up with a B in the class since there were three projects and a final exam in that class to even things out.

    The lowest grade I got in a college course was a B-. Grrr!

    I am not sure what the lowest grade on anything I got was--maybe a 65 or 70 on a test.

    Lowest grade I've ever gotten for a course was a C-. I had straight A's all through the semester, and then apparently the instructor gave me an F on the final exam. In retrospect, I should have asked him about it, because it seemed odd.

    It's not college, but in high school English I once had a 1.

    Lowest grade in a course was a "C"...darn 7:25 a.m. calculus class. I think my lowest quiz/test score was a 14% also in the same calc. class.

    In highschool I got plenty of terrible overall grades, id still pull decent test scores though even in the classes I miserably failed. Latin though was a class that I got like a 50% maybe something ridiculous.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
