My Comp II teacher posted some grades today. I don't have a chance at passing, and we're only a month in. I worked on that dumb prospectus for days and only got 7 points (out of 15) for it. When I added up all of the points that are already possible, it was a little over 200. Since I took a zero on that test (which I still think is crap. I didn't sign up for a history and politics class) I only have a little over 60 points so far. Can we say totally failing?!

Can you get a tutor or ask the teacher for some additional help? I feel your pain though. The worst class I ever took in college was computers.

Aww that sucks! I would ask to see if they have tutoring help.

I don't think tutoring would help much at this point. I don't have problems reading the assignments and posting what needs to be posted, it's her grading. She knocked me on my prospectus for not having 3 sources. I went back and looked and it didn't say we had to have 3, so I don't feel that's fair.

When I take an English class how does the test go from being about a story we read but then turns into a timed 3 page essay about history and politics? I sucked in those classes.

 I would look into dropping it if you can. You might owe some of the financial aid money back but if you fail it it could jepordize your aid and loans.......

 I would definitely try to withdraw that class then.

I was brave and e-mailed my classmates to see if anyone else was struggling. I am not alone. Quite a few of them have responded and are having the same problems as me. They also don't think the teacher is that great. She takes up to 2 days to respond to a question and talks to us as if we're dumb when we ask questions. That's been the popular answer.

Make an appointment to speak with the teacher as a group. If that doesn't work, go to the department head and request a meeting. You have rights as a student.

 Do NOT drop the class without talking to the financial aid office. I dropped a class and my financial aid was dropped for the next semester. I had to pay for and earn 6 credits on my own before I could get my aid reinstated. I even had a medical reason and it did not matter.

I don't plan on dropping, but there is no way I will pass at this point. Either way, I am screwed.
