Hey does anyone know what grade 'x' is?

<p>I checked my grades and found out that I got an 'x'!
What the hell is this one? Does anyone know?
Should I talk to my prof or what?</p>

<p>I know an FX is given if you stopped going to class, it doesn't mean that you earned the F because you did poorly in class but since you stopped showing up they give you an FX.
Maybe that's why you have an 'x' ?</p>

<p>Some professors will give an FX even if you did show up to almost every class and did the work but didn't show up for a handful of classes and they feel you are missing important work so they'll give you an FX...</p>

<p>So is that equivalent to an F? How does it affect on my GPA?
It's so weird considering I didn't show up just for couple of classes.</p>

<p>I just did a Google search, and one college states:</p>

<p>X = Failed to earn credit: missed final examination or failed to submit final assignment without prior approval. An X grade is 0 grade points, equaling an F.</p>

<p>Another uses an X to signify an incomplete due to extenuating circumstances, such as illness, death in family, etc. </p>

<p>So you should be able to find something on your school's website or e-mail your advisor to ask about that.</p>

<p>At my uni an XF is for failing due to academic dishonesty, but we don't have a pure "X" grade.</p>

<p>You should probably contact your professor.</p>
