So I just received my midterm score... and I did horrible :(
I got a 21/53; 40% (yes I know that's really bad! Let's just say that my test anxiety got to me that I could not concentrate in the exam at all...) but this score is uncurved and the professor did say they will be a curve.
What I want to know is that is it still possible for me to get an A/B average in this class? I really don't understand how the Berkeley curve system works and I've heard some bad stories. I will definitely be going to tutoring/ mock exams to help with my anxiety ( and no my grade wasn't because I didn't study. A couple hours after my exam I could remember all the mistakes I made and what calculations I did wrong, it was just my anxiety that inhibited my concentration). I will list my grading scale below and I hope someone responds to my question and gives me an insight into how the Cal grading system works.
10% Homework (So far I have over 100% because of extra credit)
5% Discussion WS (I have a 100% as well)
45% Three Midterms (15% each)
Thank You! Hopefully one of your comments helps me.
