Close, but no cigar!

  1. 89.8% that what my final score ended up being for the semester. My school does NOT round up! So I end up with a "B" for my first semester of nursing school. I know thats good, but 2/10 of a point IS SO AGGRAVATING!

    Better to have a 89.88 than a failing grade! You will come to that...where you don't feel the need for A's. I gave up my 4.0 2nd semester nursing. Now, I just want to pass.

    You're lucky. An 89 is a B at our school. A's don't start until 94.

    Good luck to you!! You will do super!

    The end of 5th semester is tommorow and I am taking a nursing theory medicine/patho final. My term mark is 83% and I need a 40% on the exam to get a passing grade of 65% or a C. I agree with other posters I just want to pass and am not concerned with GPA. Once I pass this one it is on to semester 6 which is clinical consolidation with a preceptor and then thank god the END.

    Never let it be said I didn't do the minimum

    I had a 4.0 until this semester (I'm a 3rd semester ADN student). My final put me in solid "B" territory. My type A inner voice silently mourns for my GPA, but I am grateful to have passed and now look forward to devoting my efforts to what really matters--my family. That is, until school starts upin January. Then they will have to go back to fending for themselves.
