Question

I am a student in high school,and when my grade is at a A and I don't turn in
1assignment,just because I had forgot about the assignment. My grade goes down from
a A to a B-. And even when I turn in a lot of assignments after that,and get,all 100's on
them,my grade does not go up by much. They go from a B- to a B+. The amount of
assignments I turned in after that,and got all 100's on would be 23 assignments.
So I was wondering why my grades are so hard to get back up when they go down just
the smallest amount?

9 assignments at the A level should get you back to an A. If that doesn't happen there is
almost certainly something wrong with your teacher's calculations. There is also
something seriously wrong with grading procedures that include zeros for missing work
and the absurd number of 23 assignments.
