If you want to!

I had to make this topic, because I have been waiting for grades for the last week, checking incessantly each and every day. I finally found out that I received an A in Chemistry I and a B in Calculus II. I wanted an A in Calculus II, but after a slow start to the semester, I'm happy taking home a B.

I only took two classes, but I'm interested to see some of your grades, particularly if you took 25 hours (of honors, no less) like it seems everyone does around here.

Calc III: B
Physics II: B
Chem II: B

My worst semester so far, but calc and physics were both very close to an A, so I am personally satisfied.

Calculus III- A
Ordinary Differential Equations - A
Intro to Engineering - A
Physics II- B
Statics - C


Really pissed about that C in statics but the class had only 2 tests and after doing well on the first test I kinda stopped going to class (stupidest and most boring class I've ever taken). Completely bombed the second test, in fact I asked about 6-7 of my classmates and none of them passed it either and that was after a 20pt curve. I didn't think it was too hard but there was one hard question worth 40% of the grade and the guy gives 0 partial credit.

Kinda messed up my semester especially since I had been doing pretty well up until the end. (messed up on ODE final but thankfully I had a near perfect grade before that)

I just hope all of the "OMG I got a B+! My life is over" posts find their way to this thread instead of polluting the rest of the board.

My finals are next week, I'll post my grades in about 2 weeks.

I got an A- for Physics (E&M), I really don't deserve it seeing how I bombed the midterms. I got 77% on the final and the prof threw out my midterms and replaced it with my final lol.

Oh, fine.

Linear Algebra: B
Graph Theory: B
Topology: B
Statistical Theory II: C

Grade-wise, that was easily my worst semester. I admit that Topology was hard and that I devoted a lot of energy into it at the expense of my other classes, but there's really no excuse for not having received an 'A' in Linear Algebra but carelessness and a touch of overconfidence (interestingly, linear and abstract algebra seem to come easily to me). I could've gotten an 'A' in Graph Theory, too, but I didn't like the course for the first couple months, so I didn't put as much effort into it as I otherwise would've.

I don't really care about the Stat Theory. A 'C' sucks, but I had my final on the same day as my Linear Algebra and Graph Theory finals and just got overwhelmed at the very end. Had I just pulled an 'A' in Linear Algebra, I would've been content...

Real Analysis : A
Abstract Algebra II : A
Calc IV : B-

Don't really know what happened with Calc, I was pretty pumped about Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis though.

What is Calc IV? Is it a calculus on manifolds course?

I have 10 (one left to go!) this year....most were, in a word, dire....my GPA is taking a hit this time round I fear.

No grades yet but my classes were:

General Relativity
Cosmology
Astro Data Analysis
Radio and Optical Telescopes
Solid State
Math Methods II
Nuc and Particle
Atomic Systems
Electromagnetic Theory
General Paper

You get A+ in your college? There is no such thing in the colleges around me.

What grade is A+?

Diff Eq, probably.

^At my school A and A+ are both a 4.0. My school's official grading criteria basically says that an A means you comprehensively understand the subject matter, and an A+ means you excelled beyond what was required for the course. In practice, it usually means you did about 5-10% better than what was needed for an A, which is usually around 85-90% for a science/engineering course. However since it's worth the same in grade points as an A, I guess an A+ is more of an official pat on the back than anything.

As far as the thread, I was quite pleased with my grades, but I'm not comfortable posting them.

Electrodynamics - A
Quantum Mechanics I - A
Special (and General) Relativity - A
Statistical Mechanics - A
Undergraduate Research - A

Pretty pleased. This was another good semester.

It's a 4.0 the same as an A. I don't know why I put the + down, was thinking about my final grades.

Haha...It was a TOUGH year (I think my final year will not be quite as severe). Also, it looks like a lot, but I think our classes are a wee bit shorter than US courses- the astronomy were 22 lectures each and the physics options were 18 lectures each. Plus we had no labwork this year, as our research project is in 5th year, and this was my whole course-load as we don't take general humanities or anything thats not physics/astro/math based.

I'm pretty sure thats over 2 semesters.

Here's what I got this semester:

Calculus III: A
Ordinary Differential Equations: B
Introductory Physics II: A
Fundamentals of Scientific Computing: A-
Academic Writing: A

Disappointed about the B in ODEs but other than that, pretty happy with it.

Probability was basically a pure math class. I am disappointed in my grade, though.

Probability: B
Thermal Physics: B+
 
  • #25
Modern Physics: A
Mathematical Physics: A
Numerical Methods: B
Complex Variables: A
Physics 2 Lab: A
Ballroom Dance: A (that one was a big surprise...)

Overall, it went better than expected.
