Students often find themselves on the verge of flunking a class, and having already lost the option to withdraw, the realization of the situation produces a panic that becomes debilitating. As a result, some students succumb to the frenzy and allow the rest of their semester to crash and burn.
Instead, “Keep calm and carry on”, as states the recently commercialized British government slogan. Don’t wave the white flag and don’t call off the troops. There’s still time to save your grade!
The following grade-saving strategies will help you make the most of the remaining semester:
1. Reach out to professors
Communicating with professors is an excellent grade-saving strategy. It’s never too late to speak to the instructor. Express your desire to improve your current standing and find out exactly what is expected of you. Professors are usually willing to work something out if you show that you’re serious and motivated. You can haggle for some extra credit, extensions on deadlines, and resubmissions for higher marks.Share
