I checked my grades the other day, just to make sure I would be ending my high school career on a strong note, and I realized that I had a few missing assignments. I realized some of these assignments effected my grades by quite a bit and that it is important I get these assignments turned in soon.
While I’m lucky many of my teachers understand it’s been an extremely hectic time with IB testing starting, some teachers may not be the same. Before the school year draws to a close, be sure to check with your teachers about any incomplete/missing assignments you may have. You may be surprised at how much your grade can be affected by a 20 point assignment. Also, if you have slacked and your grades aren’t want you thought they would be, ask your teacher about any extra credit options they may offer. Some teachers may offer some extra credit while some teachers may not offer any because they may feel waiting until the last minute is not what you are supposed to do.
So check your grades, especially if you are a senior and make sure your grades are what you expect they would be. If they aren’t, talk to your teachers and see what you can do to change that. You may never know what can happen with your grades at the last minute!
