I got sick the week before finals and had only energy to study for the three classes important to my major. As a result, I ended up with a C- for my GE class, Arts and Art 10, and I was wondering if this grade satisfies the requirement for "Visual and Performance Arts Analysis and Practice."
Holy crap how did you get a C- for AA10? You didn't even have to study for that class, literally.
I was kinda emo when I found out I got an A-, but damn man. Are you Engineering? Yeah, it should satisfy the visual and performance arts GE. If you weren't doing well in the beginning, you should've just taken it as a Pass/No Pass. Didn't you do any extra credit?
^Give 'em a break, some TAs were better than others (while some stricter *cough* Lana *cough*...) So far I can tell, browsing the various UCLA sites, it actually doesn't say anything about what is considered a passing grade for GEs. Just that for the grade "F" you get no credit or units.... so anything better than an F+ (lol, do any professors actually give that?) works?
I don't think P/NP wouldn't have helped you here. You have to have at least a C to get a P. A counselor I spoke to said a C- gets you an NP under the P/NP option. With a recorded grade of C-, you've passed the class and received GE credit.
I don't understand AA10. I averaged B+ for my papers; got A- for participation; and received a B on the midterm. I studied the night before the midterm and did the same for the final. But then I bomb the final (the first F I have ever gotten, EVER) and I end up with a C- for the class.
AA10 was suppose to be my GPA booster, but I got straight A-'s in my other three classes. They were history and writing courses, but it wasn't like they were handed to me on a silver platter. I am getting more flustered the more I think about it.
so a C- is considered to be a passing grade? My friend asked me this before and I didn't know how to answer her. C- gives you the option to retake the class again for a better grade.... but do you HAVE to retake the class? It doesnt state in the general catalog either.
