Last semester I was very upset to learn that I had scored 25% on the final exam for my linear circuits course and was ready to change majors...until I learned that the class average on the final was 19%. And the average final grade for the class was 40%. I ended up getting an A, despite a final grade of 62%, and was expecting to fail the course (I never really asked anyone else what their grades were, or I'd have been more comfortable). It was a difficult course with a lot of content to cover, but a 34% curve...god damn. Anyone else have a similar experience or hearing of this happening elsewhere?
