Is it better to get a W in a course than get a B grade?
I am taking the third quarter class of general biology and, of all the biology courses that I have taken, this one has been the hardest. What makes it hard is not the material, but how we are being tested on that material and the fact that we only have one midterm and one final examination. Most of our exams are True / False questions and I find this sort of questioning difficult and much harder than essay examinations or diagrams, etc. On the one and only midterm, I received a low C, meaning that even if I ace the final examination (not likely given how I did on this midterm), the best grade that I could do in the course is a B.
I’ve worked too hard in this class to get a B.
So, if I drop the course now, I would get a W. I already have many W’s from undergraduate (I went to undergrad twice, and have two bachelor’s degrees).
Any feedback on this?
