I'm enrolled in a&p 1 this semester. I just had my first exam and I don't think I did at great as I hoped. I studied every day anywhere from 2-6 hours a day. I answered all the questions on the study guide that was given to us. Taking the test today, 10 of the words we had to define were not on the exam.
After class I went up to the professor and asked if it was still possible to achieve an A if I got a C on the exam per say. His response: "we'll since I haven't graded your exam yet, I don't know. I put on the syllabus the percentages to average out your grade so it's up to you to figure it out."
Am I being unreasonable that I think his reply was rude? Why couldn't he say that if I do we'll on the last 3 exams then its possible? I explained to him that it's imperative that I get an A in this class. I study literally every day and go to tutoring. He's not very helpful and he's condesending towards me. I'm applying to nursing school this summer and I really need this A to boost my gpa. I volunteer at a hospital and I'm taking a cna course this summer. I want nothing more then to be a nurse. I cannot imagine doing anything else. Any advice on how to handle this professor?
