    Is it possible to pass semester 1 if you fail the first two minis?

    possible

    i guess you need to figure out how much each mini is worth (%) and how much the final is worth and add any assignments/quizzes etc...

    the course instructor should have given you a breakdown on the first day of class.

    Just put the numbers in and see what you get!

    Also, speak to the course instructor and have them analyze the mini's with you (personally), so they can find out where you are going wrong!

    Good luck,
    A.

    passing

    It depends on how much each exam was worth and what % you still have left. Last semester (2nd) one of our classes had a 14 point curve at the end. So basically it depends on how much u are under mps.

    Re: Passing Semester 1

    It's possible that you pass but you'll have to ace the final mini and the shelf in which ever subject that you'll take it in.

    Seriously, I'd reconsider your study strategy b/c its obviously not working. If you can't at least pass the mini's in 1st semester then it's almost a given that you'll eventually fail out in the subsequent semesters. Thats just the harsh reality.
