How important are grades?

Posted 08 December 2015 - 11:05 AM

I think I just bombed my Algorithms and Data Communications/Networking finals...

Is this going to effect my job search in the future at all? Do companies ever request a transcript of your grades? Should I be bothered about this as much as I am right now?

It may.. especially so if you need that knowledge.. or the ever present concern on not graduating.

Some do.

Retake the class.

I had students in my Automata Theory class one semester that got D's for their final grades. Many of them now have full time job offers. Grades matter for grad school. As long as you aren't consistently underperforming, then I wouldn't be too worried. A couple bad grades won't ruin your future.

C's get degrees (for undergrads). But if you're scraping by with a 2.0, then I'd question if you are in the right major.
