when it comes to your grades, your statistics fall silent. LETS HEAR EM (at least the correlation)

Exams put me in the top 5%. Still got tripped up in two of my exams. Learned I get along better with some subjects over others.

The two solid As were 1 WPM apart from each other. The other two were about 10 WPM lower.

Funnily enough, it was the exact opposite for me. The exam I wrote the most for ... worst grade.

Multiple choice and word-limited take home exams FTW. This semester? Maybe not so lucky.

I have 2 MC exams this semester. Not sure whether I like the idea or hate it.

I'd honestly much rather have racehorse issue spotters than either of those things.

My concern is that one-half of one grade so far has been decided by anything resembling a race horse exam, and that class provided me with my worst grade. If I get stuck with four race horse exams this semester I feel like I'll be at a big disadvantage.

I performed best on my MC exams which is alarming considering that I traditionally underperform on MC tests compared to practice tests. Whatever works, I suppose.

I had 3 race horse exams and got 3 different grades so I wouldn't worry too much about one exam being any kind of an indicator of how you are on race horse exams

I found style of test had no effect on my grades.

3L checking back in...

Previously, on the record, I expressed my uninformed opinion that grades were arbitrary. I have since received all A's last semester, and am retracting that statement. :lol:

Soooooo....I'm still waiting on two grades. Beginning to get a bit aggravated. Is this normal? :(

It was so ridiculous going over an exam with professor and they say, "Yea I could've given you an extra point here." Then they repeat that 4 times over the course of going over the exam.

Then at the end: "You were right on the border between two grades, but, you know, 1-2 points wouldn't have made a difference."

Same-gonna outline next semester. There was a noticable diff on ones i outlined for, and ones i did on a whim. I am most prideful of my incorporating the yankees into every exam, and not doing poorly.
