Is an A- on a midterm good?

Lots of people got that grade.

I'm just one of the many apparently.

  • A minus? That's just almost an A or an A plus. It's not like a B minus or less so I wouldn't even worry about it or fret over it.

  • Never be disappointed with the grade you didn't get with the work you didn't do. Put in as much as what ya want out

  • It depends, but yes, it's a decent grade. Some professors (present company excluded) don't give A's at all (yes, I know a few), and some give A's really easily.

      present company excluded? What do you mean?

      I checked the percentile breakdown and the average was a 74%. Also almost half of the class seemed to have gotten A- and above.

      I'm a professor of Computer Science and Software Development for a private 4-year college and a local technical college. Education is my job. :)

      And from what you've said, you're in the top 50%, so be proud of your accomplishment!

      Wow that's pretty cool, ha ha thank you. I guess top 50% is a good start and I can work my way towards a higher percentile after this

  • Try engineering school. Getting an A on anyth big test is worth getting drunk for.

      You know something interesting about engineers is that the ones who pass in distinction are the most social people alive.

  • Depends on the class average

      Not really. It is supposed to be a bit difficult, however there are lots of people enrolled (almost 100 people).

      Also I realized that the reason I didn't do too well on the midterm (as in better than A-) is because I mainly studied the more complicated material when I should've studied the basics a lot more.

  • Nope, horrible grade... how dare you...
