Azn Fail: The College Years

How do I feel right now? The movie poster for Platoon comes to mind. Except the source of anguish are test scores and not cold-blooded acts of combat-induced betrayal.

me, anguished

I feel like this about a lot of things. These in particular.

Anatomy 27/40
Biology 24/34
O-chem 60/100

    It’s okay Tommy. I ended up bombing my first tests too. Apparently, in college, B is an acceptable grades for Asians. So technically, you didn’t do THAT bad. So stop slashing your wrists and look forward to other people who will be doing what you do in an year from now because of all your AP credits and their lack of it.

    JY, I got a D+ and a C- and a ???. So very not ‘B’s.

    Was there a curve?

  4. Tommy says:

    In anatomy, no. In biology, it is unknown until the end of the semester. In Ochem, yes

    The latter two use one-way bell curves wherein for example, if 15% of students don’t get A’s, the standards are lowered, but they will never be raised.

    Yes, I was a bit disconcerned when i got my lab report back with 32/50 on it. In fact, a little more than disconcerned. (try heart attack). But then I discovered that I was actualy above the average, and therefore got a B or something like that. Yay people more dumberester than me.

    What’s up with the delay in the RSS feed for comments?

  9. Walthers says:

    You should realize that you’re taking some of the hardest science classes that a Freshman (or a typical Sophomore) could take… plus Biology which still is enough work.
