I am a Junior at KU, and taking a Mechanics course in Physics. I'm a Math major going for a B.S. and taking this course for my applied math requirement.

The book used is

*Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems*5th Ed. by Thornton.

We just got our first exam results back and the class median was a 8.5/25. I got a 9, or a 36%, on the test.

While taking the test, I knew I was going to fail which is the first test score I've received in college below a C. Is this something standard in upper level Physics courses? I've never seen such a low average before.

Luckily, I do have an 83% avg in HW, where the median is a 75%.
