Question

Im taking Microbiology this semester, it's a 5 week course. Every class there's an Quiz, 10 questions. The first quiz, I didn't do; so I end up getting an 0.01/10(0.1%),F. I can't make up for that quiz. The second quiz was this week, and I got 10/10 (100%) A. However as we speak my grade is an F (50.05%) 10.01/20, How do I get my grade to atleast an C+ or B. What will it take, I know I have to pass the rest of my quizes. But Will it get to an B+ or an C. I have 3 more classes left, so that means I have 3 more quizes left..

Plz help..

This is the type of question my 'two warnings in red' ask you not to post but as you sound
desperate I will answer this time. (See I am learning Bailey!) Terrible grading practices by
your teacher. I hope they know more about microbiology than they do about assessment -
and math. You didn't tell me the cut scores for the letter grades but if you get 10/10 on
each of the remaining quizzes you will have a total just over 80% (40.1 out of 50) which
should be a B but may be a C.
