Which Exam was the hardest in terms of your lowest grade?

Feel free to note your easiest exam, in terms of receiving your highest grade.

If all of your scores are not in, you can come back and change your vote, if necessary.

You realize some people took classes not on your list?

My lowest grade wasn't even an exam.

And some of my doctrinal classes are missing from this list.

Property blows hard. I'd rather take Admin Law for the next 3 semesters.

I must have missed the day in LS when they discussed the hundreds of great reasons why schools embrace The Curve. Perhaps I am terribly misinformed, but as I understand it, if everyone took an exam and all the answers were [nearly] identical, some would receive an A and some a B-. Since I do not “get” the benefit of this method, please tell me what I am missing.

Contracts and Leg Reg tied. I got a weird question on Leg Reg that I forgot to bring a couple of issues into. And a really weird policy question at the end. Contracts was 2/3rds multiple choice, and I don't think I prepared enough for that aspect of it.

My contracts questions were silly. I studied for a fact pattern test and got a "Public policy if the world were run by conservatives" test.

I suppose everything on the test was discussed in class, but you can't really test what someone learned by throwing such a ridiculous curve ball.

Whatever. I don't have a JD so I don't know anything.

Torts

0 fact patters, all policy, completely subjective.

Torts. I think the policy question screwed me. I didn't even know what I was writing during that part. I couldn't think of anything for some reason. Also I did not save myself enough time for that part of the test.

Lol @ leaving some classes off the list.

One of the classes left off the list is what I did worst on.

I read it as him nominating an option for the poll so you could participate.

I would guess that the majority of exam scores have been released. At this point Contracts and Torts are easily the exams people had the hardest time with. . .71%. Only 27% found CivPro and Property to be the hardest.

Need another poll option for when all your grades in those classes are the same.
