Here we find some useful bits of information about college grading. I should distribute it to my students (not that it would really do any good). The thing that isn't said, that should have been, is that no one in college -- not your profs, not your TAs, not the deans, no one -- cares what grade you get. It's not like high school, where someone will show up to hold your hand and walk you through it if you're having problems. It's your problem, to the extent that even if your prof is never around and your TA stinks, you still are expected to do whatever it takes to get a good grade.
