I have 694/989 points, which comes out to a C-. I think the class average is an F so does that mean I have an A after they factor in the weighting? __________________ (\__/) (='.'=) (")_(")

Every single test we've taken in his class, including the final, had a class average of an F. __________________ (\__/) (='.'=) (")_(")

Well this is entry level chem. I think he'd be reprimanded/fired if he failed the whole class.

It means term grade 70%, final exam 30% of your class grade. Or maybe the other way around. __________________ "There are two sides to every story, and then there is the truth." - Lexisnexus80

There is a curve. He already said so. I just don't know how to calculate it. Well final grades are released tomorrow so I guess I'll find out then.
