    raise my grade

    Advertisements



    I'm thinking seriously to talk to the head of the IM dept to see if he can change my grade of my IM rotation from B to A. How do I approach this? I've never done this before.....

    Begs the question of why you got a B. Until you know that it's hard to talk your way out of the situation.

    I'm not an articulate person, the thought of seeing the head of the dept freaking me out. I got A's in NBME and oral exam, but B's in the other 3 sections.

    Given that IM requires med students to accurately and efficiently present patients, I don't know how someone who's "not articulate" could possibly achieve an A.

    But whats the worst that could happen.... they say no.

    Unless you can contest one of the grades, what is your argument? Absent that you are questioning their arithmetic.

    Doesn't the preceptor at the hospital normally assign your grade? Or is it really the chair of the department in your case?
