Worst grade you've ever gotten?

Thought this might be a fun topic. I met someone the other day that made a 10 on a multiple-choice test. Not really sure how you do that.....

So how about it? Tell us about your worst grade(s) on a paper, a test, in a class, or anything else.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

I got a D in Brain and Behavior (basically neuroanatomy) in college. While it was partly because I took it with my fiance, who I'd just met at the time, and we sat in the back exchanging notes instead of listening, it was the final nail in the coffin of my consideration of a career in any sort or scientific field, and taught me to avoid classes that required memorizing minutiae, and focus on those where the goal was to grasp big concepts, and think critically.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

I recently got a 0% on a test in a fluff class; I hadn't been able to see the play that the test was over due to prolonged insomnia. Also, I'd thought that it was going to be more of a quiz rather than a full-blown test; I would have looked up information about the play or asked people otherwise.

Anyway, I tried to insert a little bit of humor at the end of my test, which did not go over well . . . I think the professor misinterpreted what I was saying and found it insulting.

But I later explained what I meant and why I hadn't been able to go and whatnot, and he is letting me do a make-up exam as long as I get registered with disability first.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

I got a "U" on an exam last year... my university has a scale of 1-20, where 20 is as 'exceptional' and anything less than 9 is a fail, so to be awarded a 'U' is amazingly bad.

I remember writing pages and pages, then reading it back to discover I'd gone off an a tangent about a paragraph in, and just carried on writing about that instead of what I was actually supposed to be writing about... hence the 'u' I guess.

Re-sat and got a 17, which is pretty decent, still haunted by the amazing 'U' though...

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

.33 GPA for a semester. And from this day forward I still hate Anatomy. I refuse to study for a test. Just that is why I did better in physics at least for that class I could have all my formulas in my TI 85.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

1.63 first semester at a very expensive private college. I just didn't go to class enough. As long as I did that I could be okay even if I did not study much, but could not catch up after missing so many classes. I transferred to my state school after that debacle.

Oh, and I have two degrees now, so you can recover!

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

I have been doing really well all semester, 80s and 90s mostly, but I just got a 51 on an assignment worth 10% of my grade. It was marked excessively hard but I also didn't put nearly enough time or effort into it.

I had zero on a few quizzes last year, but they weren't worth much. I probably got an equal number over 8/10. I think I failed a calculus midterm first year and nearly failed the class.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

Made a D in Introduction to Geography, but my teacher was Korean and hard to understand and I slept through like 75% of the class. Retook it though and got an A.

Got a 20 on a quiz a few days ago that gave 10 points for writing your name.

Re: Worst grade you've ever gotten?

Oh dear, where do I start? haha. This year is exceptionally tough for me when it really shouldn't be.

Calculus I pretty much bomb. As of now my grade is a 65 (65 is the absolute min. passing grade) and that's WITH a 1.1 curve on everything. *sigh* In that class I never get above a 75-80 on anything. The last test we had was worth 50% of our grade...and I got a 36 on it. Epic fail! (Without the curve I have around a 54 I think)

History, also bad. I forgot to complete an essay last week that is worth a bug chunk of your grade. (I'm probably dead meat here sometime soon when he finds out my paper is missing.) My grade in there WITH a curve is a 74. Without...It's a 67. We had to write a 12 page paper and I destroyed it with a D. Oh yes...the lowest in the class.

These are the two classes I am doing the worst in. And report cards come out next week so they will probably be lower than anything I've ever seen. All my other classes are decent though
English - 87
Chemistry-92
Gym-99 (I'm a beast in gym! )
Spanish- 94
