|04:17 pm - Oh crap.|
I failed macroeconomics...crap....think I'll keep this from mom for now /:
The good news is I got B in Politics, and B+ in ENG and the other politics. Now just awaiting my Psychology mark...guessed my way on that exam too since it was multiple choice. I had better have passed that one, omg even if it's with a D I just want to pass. Dammit this means I have to take economics all over again!
BECCA!! Need your help again (don't you love being an older-year student?? All these pathetic questions from the dumb freshmen). I was looking at my marks for the fall semester, and it said my CGPA was 3.5 and I need to up it to 4.5, and I should see an academic counsellor. So...first of all, what is CPGA...and secondly, what if I can't get it up to 4.5?? Does that mean I get kicked out or something?? And uhh....seeing as I'm like, 6 hrs away from Ottawa, seeing an academic counsellor's kinda hard...so is there another way? maybe like...sending an email to him/her or something? (btw do we have specific academic counsellors assigned to us that we're suppose to see each time or is it like, you just see whichever one?) Thanks Becca!
[EDIT]: Someone just tried to call me on my cell, I'm hoping it's someone from lj since the connection was all static and I had to hang up. Just a heads up, since I'm in the middle of nowhere-land (hey the population of this place is 800, that's pretty close to nowhere) my cell phone connection is lower than crap. 90% of the time I can't even get a freaking connection, so if you text me it might take awhile for the message to get here, and if you call...good luck that you get any connection at all. My home phone is 519-688-5384, so probably call that instead, and if I'm not here there's at least the answering machine you can leave a message on.
Current Mood: annoyed at economics
I feel like a sempai. It makes me feel special. or Fuji like. Either or.
Your CGPA is your Cumulative grade point average. It's every mark you recieve over the 4 years at school. A 4.5 is between a C and a C+, which is what you need to graduate. I believe once you dip below that they put you on Academic Probation, which is 2 or 3 semesters to get your CGPA up over that. Though, I'm not too sure about that though.
Anywho, best way to boost that is to take the exact same courses again and replace the original mark.
You should be able to call or email an academic advisor. Just give your department a call, and the'll set you up to talk to one. I think they should be okay with emails or phonecalls though.

Ah ok, academic probation i can deal with, and i'll have to re-take those ECO and SOC (which i also failed in the fall semester) anyway since those are required courses for my program. Awesome, makes me feel a lot better thanks =^-^= I'm gonna call you Becca Senpai from now on kk? lol
Yeha, retaking those classes will really make your CGPA turn around, just cause the fails will disappear. That's why I'm taking philosophy again.
Becca Senpai? XDDDD I like the sound of that. ^__^
Again?? A third time? O__o;; Pretty soon you'll be able to teach the course XDD
Well, the first time I dropped it before it showed up on my transcript. Last time I thought I could get the final. So according to my transcript, it's only the 2nd time. :P
XDDDDDDDDD I see I see lol, well third time's the charm as they say!
its okay darls. its okay...*pat*
However it doesn't mean you fail thewhole subject right? merely due to the exams?

i know i was passing ECO before exams, so it must've been the exam that screwed me over, but either way i have to re-take the entire course all over again ;__; doesn't that suck??
Oh and I've been meaning to ask you, have you heard anything about the "Only the Ring Finger Knows" novel?? Didn't they say it was gonna get translated and published by April or something?
Ah I see. *pats shoulder* its okay its okay hun *hugs*
Hmm yeah I have well. *wub* *wub* since they are planning to release the second novel out. its at http://www.yaoi-manga.com/
