I consider myself to be an achiever. I get 80's a lot, but don't mind the occasional 50... so I'm sitting in grade 11 Bio... we're getting interim reports and i get a C... (64%) ... so i'm like alright, I've aced all the tests/quizzes and handed in all the work, why the hell am i getting such a low mark...

"All work that did not get 100% mark is being marked as a zero"

:mfinger: OMFG. I had 12 / 18 assignments that i missed maybe 1 mark on... POS biology teacher... Bleh... Can't stand school sometimes!

its only interim so it doesn't really matter... he put out of 18 how many we got perfect...

then weighed that category heavily... but still my parents were like "u promised u had everything in!" then i made them phone which lead to a confusion of what he had said... very fun day IMO

Well, it’s not illegal. In most schools it may be against policy. Diffrenet schools have different rules though. Plus, you have to take into consideration, that the teacher can always deny what’s going on.

Also, most teachers are allowed to run the classroom how they see fit.

It’s defiantly wrong, but there’s not really much he can do about it. Other than having a "sit-down" with his teacher

Not to mention, it's high school. It doesn't really matter.

70-80 = B

That's how we do it at my highschool, basically. Anything else seems stupid to me :thumbsup:

That's what mine is. I believe it changes according to the county you live in. I think :p

William: Yes, I believe we can all see that.

if your parents are really that butt hurt about it, you could ask Mr. Whats-his-nuts bio teacher to write down all your assignments and their scores and average them the way noted above and give it to your parents, making a point to tell them that the grading system is unconventional.

Oh, and fire bomb the teacher's lounge.

OR send flowers w/ a chicks name that is distinctly NOT his wife's on them to your (male?)teacher's house. Wives love that, .....right?
