Question

I'm a college student. I am taking a summer semester class over all I was doing great
with a high B but last week we had our first exam and I received a 40% this brought my
grade down to an F since exams are 357 puts. And homework and quizzes are just 100
each I only have 4 more weeks of class and I'm panicking. Will I be able to pull my
grade up to a B or A in that time? By the way back ground I'm a straight A student in the
honors program the class is accounting. Reason why I failed so bad was because my
text book arrived to late I couldn't cover all the 9 chapters in one night; my book arrived
the day before the test.

If your straight A student you should be able to pull up your grade but whether you can
get to an A or B depends on the grading policies of your professor. Hopefully there is
heavier weighting for comprehensive assessments near the end of the course.

Thank you very much. The exam are extremely heavily weighted we only have two exams
and they are each worth 400 points. While quizzes and homework are 100 points each.
