QUESTION: Has anyone had experience with a prof increasing a non failing grade by 1%? I have a 69 in a course and would like it to be bumped up to 70, apart from looking over a final is there anyone other tactful way of asking for an increase?

  1. Unless you have a legit remark on something then there's no way.

  2. Fuck off, you got a 69. Best shot is to review your final and see if there's any opportunity to fix marking errors. Otherwise, cry and die.

  3. You earned a 69. Why on earth would a professor give you more than you earned? Think of grades as your pay. When you get your pay check you don't go up to your boss and say "can I have ten more bucks? I know I didn't earn it but it would really help." Accept the 69 and get on with your life.

  4. Ask to review your exam with the prof. They are usually nice enough to go over it with you and try to help you out if you are applying to grad schools or scholarships.

  6. If you are a hot and of the opposite gender as the prof (or same depending on the prof's sexual orientation), consider whoring yourself if begging for the 1% increase fails.
