Final grade in programming class

Posted 08 May 2009 - 07:40 AM

Im sad I got a B- as my final grade for my programming class. :( Ya its not bad but I really was trying for an A. Well you know what? I am going to destroy the next classes and make sure that I get an A. As a side note I am taking Computer science and introduction to computer security in the fall semester.

I'll probably make like a B, I never do the bookwork or anything, so I always make worse grades than I could.

Not in grad school. The CS graduate programs at my college requires a 3.0 to pass any class and a 3.2 GPA in the 5 core classes for your specialization. While a 3.2 average is not awesome, it definitely weeds out the slackers. Actually, it's rather doubtful that you could even get into graduate school with a C average.

I usually get A or AB in my programming courses. Depends on if I actually bother to study or not.

So far in the classes I've taken I got 2 A's and a B. The B was this class that just ended which was C++.
Didn't bring a page of notes to the first test so I got a 50 :/.

This year, I got a 99.4 in my Intro. to Java class. I got a 100 for the entire second semester. Last year, I got a 97.8 in my IT Foundations course, which was a college level course w/o college credit taught to HS freshman. I set the curve for the final exam in that class b/c of my clear advantage in the Java section.
