Punishment Day

I've been looking forward to explaining Punishment Day's consequences, so that you relax a little...

According to his explanations, that +0.5, -0.5 or -1 is included within the 20% belonging to class activities. So... out of that 20% the teacher cannot exceed in any way the grades.

The exam is worth 40% of the final grade, and 4/10 is required to pass the subject. Besides, group activities are worth another 40%, and I have learnt that most of the groups are doing great with them... That means only one end to any of the two possible situations:

- If you didn't reach 4/10 on the exam, you will have to retake it in June either ways, so you shouldn't worry at all.

-If you did reach the 4/10 on the exam and your average between the exam and the tasks is at least 5/8 (40%+40%=80%) you have already passed the subject, so you're saved.

Even if you have done of the questions in class and got -1 in "Punishment Day" for "wasting the teacher's time", you don't need to worry, since the worst thing likely to happen is that you keep the same 0/2 that you already had, since he cannot lower your marks below that 20%.

I have created a spreadsheet to show three different cases:


These are the results so far for Wednesday's survey:

Passed: 10 (21%)
Failed: 15 (31%)
Totally screwed up: 20 (42%)
No F***ing clue: 3 (6%)

This is, partly, consecuence of a bad behaviour. We all know that. However, we should not let this happen again, even if there are still behavioural problems. Teachers have two options: One is being tough on those who constantly talk in class; the other is not giving a shit about it. Punishing all of the class is not an option, and at least I, will not take it anymore. I am nobody's parent, hence I will not take any responsibility for other people's behaviour, and I am really far from letting that situation affect my grades.

It is also important to warn that EVERYONE is entitled to demand from others, if some start demanding from oneself... I recommend the teachers to find another solution for the problem, otherwise they will turn it into a major problem, and honestly, I don't need any more problems in college, I am already fed up with it and don't want to reach the I've-had-it-up-to-here point.
