So I recently checked online to find out I got a 69% I thought I had a passing grade on because I feel like I put a fair amount of work into it and also went to a tutor for it. My teacher tries to be hard and warns us to write using correct MLA format in our class or else she wouldn't read it, but instead decides to deduct huge chunks of points as if it were "nicely" justified. I strongly feel like I deserve a better grade, I understand that my teacher should expect us to know MLA without much review. I just don't understand how I am going to need MLA a lot going into a STEM field. Maybe some of you can inspire me to see the light in this situation. I really hate this class and my teacher and finding positivity is quite tough.
