If you're in college, you can retake the course and the A you get the second time will be what shows up on your transcript, not the D.

Thats the thing i hate about Uni/College, you ask someone a question they'll give you an answer and then you ask the same question to someone else who is in the same department and they'll tell you something completely different. YPG's experience is slightly different but i can see where he's coming from.

Holy fuck, do not under any circumstances accept the first answer to any question you ask in college/uni. For the love of God these people love to fuck around. My student loans over-payed me and I was told I had to pay the excess or I would not be eligible for further loans... It took me TWO DAYS and THREE PEOPLE that worked in the exact same office before I found out that because the amount was so small I didn't have to pay it back and on top of that this is the second time I've been over-payed. Mini rant over lol.

But yah... you could always take the course again and just get a better mark.

Yeah, I won't be taking it to court, I'll just keep filing grievances against the teacher and issue another review with the Dean. It was handled all in about 2 days, way too fast. They'll have more time during the summer when everyone else isn't filing problems.

Serves you right for accepting the smiley face at the start, Gebu, and for not undertaking the task correctly in order to obtain those points.

I'd have failed you.

If you turn in the equivalent of Shakespeare for a calculus assignment you're going to get 0. It doesn't matter how good what you submit is: if you don't do the task, you don't get the marks. The marks they give are assessing you based on a marking criteria which is in turn are based course outcomes. If you do the wrong task, you don't meet those particular outcomes (regardless of how good your assignment on the wrong topic was) and you therefore don't get the good grades.

Sounds like a RIGOROUS unit. I don't know how you guys survive that kind of work.

Wow, your teacher's a bitch. I'd be screwed if I were you, in my college they don't let you retake courses you've gotten D's in, only ones you've failed.

Well, I originally wrote a complaint on the teacher which went in to the Dean as "an unfair grading" dispute. So it was pretty much ignored since my assignment was technically late (though it had teacher approval?!?).

So I filed an 'Academic Affairs: Comprehensive Grading" form to look at the sequence of events, instead of just a late paper. I don't see how they can say this was my fault when I triple checked with the teacher, even have emails from her saying I was good. I'd settle for retaking the class if they would take the grade off my GPA. I could fit it in over the summer.
