Inevitably I'll write one of the best exams in a class, even if it's not actually a good exam, but if everything's an uncurved essay-war, I could easily drop an A- somewhere. I do have some room to drop off, being in the very top of the class, but I just have a ton of potentially difficult seminars and classes going on.
Huh? I don't understand that logic. Are you saying in an uncurved class, because the professor isn't compelled to give X amount of As, he will give you an A- even though your exam is head-and-shoulders better than the exam of the student he gave an A? I would assume based on the grading that if you got an A- your exam was not as good as the person's who got an A.
