Question

This is my second semester in biology and it had not gotten off to a
good start. My first few assignments were 100's & 90+, but I recently
had a test with a score of 70% and two daily grades counted as zero.
If I continue to get 90% and above on my daily assignments and get 85+
on my tests, do you think my grade will become at least a B- by the
end of nine weeks? I had an average of 79% last semester (my biology
teacher did not count our final, the score on that test 94%), and I do
not want to have my grade be a C+ for my overall year average. Thank
you.

says:

This question is a good example of two things. 1. Bad grading practices. 2. The type of
question it is clearly indicated that I do not answer here. Part of the reason for that is that
almost always, as in this case, there is not enough information for me to answer the question.
The person to get the answer from for this type of question is the teacher.
