    I am so with you. I have ruined my GPA with these classes! Took my previous 4.0 into Fundamentals 18 months ago - missed an A by 0.39 points; thus effectively demolishing the 4.0 (8 credit class). Dont remember Concepts I exactly, I think it was by less than 2 points so not as close/annoying; it was also a B in an 8 credit class (that's my GPA you hear falling.) Just finished Concepts II (yet another 8 credit class) and missed the A by 0.12. Ugh!

    I am with you too-missed 2 A's this semester by .3 and .6 !!! It sucks to be so close. And it has nothing to do with "blessings"--it has to do with hard work. Anyway, I understand where you are coming from ! (((HUGS)))

    Yeah I missed an A once by .5! I was so mad thinking if I had only gotten one more question right.....

    I'm joining the club. I missed my A in Psych by one question.
    I have also maintained straight A's and this is a really hard one to swallow. It would be a lot easier if I had a middle range B.

    In Nursing School I have never had a class that equally weighed anything

    Our (3) exams in Psych were 50 questions and worth 25% grade each
    The (1) quiz was 25 questions and a whopping 5%

    grrrrr

    everything is about blessings. i worked very hard to get the grades that i got and thank god for every a,b,and c that was given. so don't talk to me about hard work because i have done my share! maybe because i know that i am blessed, passing is good enough for me and knowing that so many wish they could be in my shoes, makes me work even harder and increase my gratefulness!all blessings come from god!

    I seem to always be on the borderline! Last semester (Fundamentals 1st semester), I could only miss 6 on the final to keep my A. Well, I missed 6! Ended up with a 92.5% and they do round up! This semester in Med/surg, I can only miss 7 to keep my A. Unfortunately, it's 100 questions worth 2 pts each, so in reality, I can only miss 6 AGAIN!
    Last night I had my Mental Health final. I can only miss 12 to keep my A. I had 13 questions that were really irking me! The wording was horrible on most of those. That would leave me no room for error on the other 87 questions and would have to get at least one of the 13 right. I'm really bummed. I'll just have to wait and see my grade tomorrow.
    I feel for you! I'm already prepping myself for that first (maybe even second)B that may be coming my way. Unfortunately, the hospitals I will be applying to DO want a copy of your transcript!

    I'd rather be 10 points away and .6 away. That does bite. I remember being .8 away from an A in nursing school the one quarter I didn't make an A. Recently in my RN to BSN program I was a point away from a A and got an A -. That minus irritated me because it brought down my 4.0.

    Anyway, you're doing a great job! Keep up the good work.

    I got an 89.8 in my maternity/pediatrics class. I'm hoping to be rounded up to a 90 (A-) but we'll see. I am not holding my breath.

    Geez, why the eye roll at my post? We all have different challenges or disappointments in our lives.

    or that.

    not everyone shares the opinion or belief that everything is about blessings or that blessings come from god.

    I was just happy to pass. Never worried about getting an A. If I ever did, that is? Can't remember. Not making As or Bs or even Cs, never mattered once I was out there working. It didn't make me a better nurse. Hard work and determination did. All I can remember about nursing school is you didn't pass unless you had a 76% average on the final grade. I always just passed! By the skim of my teeth.

    I missed an A in patho by .8. That bites. I agree it's all about hard work.
