    Okay, first off, if I get a C in any of my classes on my report cards then I can kiss everything I own goodbye. My parents would kill me if I ever got a C on my report card. I don't know if they do it like this where you live but they average your 1st quater grade, your 2nd quarter grade and your semester exam grade and that will be your second quarter grade that will go on your report card. So help me out here. I got:
    1st Quarter: B
    2nd Quarter: C
    Semester Exam: B
    Btw this is for my math class. Help me out. I am worried about getting a C on my report card.

    do they count equally? Where I teach they count the two quarters as 80% and the exam counts 20%

    I think the exam is 25% or 33%.

    What are the number values for the B's and the C? Is there any way to find out exactly what the percentages are?

    1st Quarter: 84.8%
    2nd Quarter: 70.5%
    For the exam they just said I got a B no % on what I got.

    Yes, it can really make a difference if the exam is weighted differently than the quarter grades, or if they use the numbers instead. Question, though, if your parents will hit the roof at a "C," didn't you already get one (2nd quarter)? Or do they not know that yet?

    If you do end up with a C, you can offer to retake the class in summer school.
