Try to pass with a C or just Fail?

<p>I'm taking econ 101 right now and im not sure whether I should just try to get a C or fail and get a better grade next quarter retaking it. What do you guys think? Is getting a C better or getting a better grade next time? I don't mind because I am not behind in my major, my main concern is gpa >.<. Thanks in advance for your input.</p>

<p>i tihnk you can repeat a class if you have a c- or lower. if you're just looking at it from a GPA perspective, if you retake a class your previous grade wont count, so you will end up with a higher GPA if you get a c-/fail right now</p>

<p>I read somewhere that they average your grade in certain circumstances, any one know the specifics?</p>

<p>afaik, if its an unapproved repeat ie you retake physics 1A after youve already taken 1B. both grades for 1A will count</p>

<p>I am going to pay a visit to one of those ASK booths around campus when I have the time and find out all the specifics on dropping classes and what not, then I'll report back perhaps.</p>
