I just ended up with 91.3% and B in class which caused me to lose scholarship
. 92% is an A. I got 4 questions wrong on the final, each was 0.5% of the grade.
I would accept the fact that 91.3 is not the same as 91.5, however, I don't think I got the question wrong because there was no right answer. And few questions got dropped (the ones I actually got right) but this one prof said she was not going to drop it.
I want to hear your insight if this is a fair question. So, we are talking about fractures and the book says "paresthesia is an early finding in ischemia, paralysis and pulslesness are late."
On the exam question is; What is the late, omnious sign of ischemia?
So, I did pick paresthesia but then I thought, wait it is early finding, so that is not an answer for sure. I thought posturing is not really related to ischemia but again... At the end, I just randomly picked petaling (wasnt sure what it meant) even though I knew it has nothing to do with ischemia. As soon as I submitted the test, I brought this up to my prof and showed her the book and she agreed that it wasnt a good question. However, the course coordinator absolutely was mean about it and refused to drop it, accusing me of not knowing what petaling was (yes, I wasnt sure what it meant but that wasn't even a question). She also said that it was the least WRONG answer. I do not think it is fair. Another student complained about another question that was little confusing and it got dropped immediately.
I am thinking of filing a complaint since I lost so much money, but not sure if the coordinator's argument is actually valid and how dean or someone else would see the question.
I do not want to make anyone angry but I dont think it is fair to lose scholarship over something I knew. I showed the professor right away what the book said. Also, they told us that NCLEX world is perfect and while in real life signs and symptoms might not exactly present as we are taught, NCLEX is all about black and white.
