Bless the teachers who don’t round

When you clutch the 89.48% for the semester.

When you clutch the 89.48% for the semester.

The best time of the year has just come to an end. And I’m not talking about the holidays.

The last minute cram sessions that students look forward to all year is sadly over. Yes, I’m talking about finals week. While it has always been a tradition to have finals after break for Central students, this year the grind was even more real with finals being before break.

However, as students study hard for finals, they sometimes come short of the grade they need for the semester and love the exhilarating feeling of not getting the grade they wanted. It’s like ordering your favorite dish at a restaurant and just staring at its beauty at a distance. I know you can relate. It’s the best way to enjoy your favorite dish–you can smell it, see it, but you don’t have to worry about those carbs.

“Honestly, it would be ridiculous for teachers to round; I don’t know what students are thinking who expect it,” said Dina Marley, junior.*

It’s not like it actually matters if you receive an A over a B. Most colleges don’t even look at transcripts, so when I hear my fellow classmates complaining about their GPA, I can’t help but laugh.

As for the teachers who round when it’s clearly two percentage points away, I think they are doing a great injustice. Please stop. It’s revolting.
