“Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry?” -The Daily Post
The way grading is done in so many classes at Rutgers actually infuriates me. This whole grade inflation/deflation thing is so unfair and it makes me so angry! Like why does Expos class have to be 5% As, 35% Bs, 35%Cs, 25% not passing grades?
How about the people who EARN an A get an A and the people who earn an F get an F. Why are we filling in ridiculous quotas just so the school appears to have a more challenging and rigorous curriculum? Assigning grades that students don’t actually deserve hurts us. It makes earning an A seem almost impossible… to the point where it’s questionable whether it’s worth even trying.
The worst is when you actually SHOULD have gotten an A but the professor tells you she can’t give it to you or she’ll get fired for giving out too many As. Yup.
The one professor who spoke up about this got fired.
