Can I bring up an old grade?

In my school, the second marking period just started. The way grading works, if you get one C in a marking period, the highest possible grade you can get for the semester is a B. I am normally an A student, but I got a C for a class in the first marking period. Is there any way to improve my grade so that I have a chance at getting an A?

Depending on your school, they may average the numeric grade. If they do, depending on how high your C was, you may have a chance if you get a high A the second half of the semester.

if its GPA wise like 4=A 3=B 2=C 1=D 0=F

if you get an A = 4 and C =2 the average would be 6/2 = 3 so in that case, there is no way to get an A overall.

My bachelors degree was in mathematics and I was seeking to be an secondary ed mathematics teacher. I do know that teachers can bump your final grade if they wise. They can’t lower it but they can raise it. Seek your teacher’s advice.

if you study really hard, do all homework/projects are easy ways to bring up your grade. whenever a teacher gives a chance to use extra credit, utilize it because it can help you tremendously. teachers also like when a student participates, at my school class participation is part of your grade, so participate in class in anyway possible, even just by asking a question. also, sometimes ask a teacher, what I am doing wrong in your class and how can i improve? now they know that you are upset with your grade and that you do not want to give up, but only improve. they will notice your effort. hope this helps!!!!!

Speak privately to your teacher and see what he says that you can do in order to get an A.
