A- is the new B

Classes started this week. I was kind of excited that I started new classes - Cost Accounting and Governmental & Not-for-profit Accounting - but that's quickly wearing off now that the harsh reality of school is kicking in.

At U of A, a plus/minus grading system hadn't been implemented, so 90% and above was an A and counted as a 4.0. My professors are grading on the plus/minus system, which means than an A-, with a GPA of 3.67, has just become the new B. Ouch. I'll need to try extra hard just to get my A.

My Governmental & Not-for-profit teacher also mentioned at the beginning of class that the intermediate financial accounting book was quite the "page turner" compared to our Governmental & Not-for-profit text. Hmmm. Double ouch.

  1. I remember feeling that way when they implemented the new +/- system. You hate it when you get the A- but you love it when you get the A+... :-)
