Right now I'm getting a high C +/low B- in Algebra, an A+ in English, A in computer, A- in social studies, probably A- in band (I don't go to all my lessons), A in choir probably, B- in science (I have a huge test Wednesday, hopefully that will bring my grade up), B in home ec (sewing, laundry), A- in spelling, A in reading/writing, and probably a B+/A- in quest (quest is a class where you talk about drugs and stuff)

Well, before I reached HS, I had straight As. Having a very strict mother, I couldn't even have an A-. That soon changed as soon as I moved to, yet another, new school and hung around a really bad group of kids. My freshman year in HS, I had a 2.35 GPA. Strangely enough, I got a D in my honors English class and I was placed into an honors English class in the 10th grade! I managed to salvage what was left of my GPA by the 11th and 12th grades and graduated with a 3.2 (barely) and a decent SAT score. I only applied to one school - UC Irvine - and was accepted :) Affirmative action or not. I thought that was cool. "Don't give up" is all I have to say.

I graduated with a B+ average.  I don't remember any exact grades except that I failed home ec because I couldn't sew a pillowcase straight.  I used that pillowcase for 15 years before I had to throw it away because of wear.  I shouldn't have failed. >:(

Alicia, that's GREAT!  ;D I made it out of high school with only a few extra units. It was close. :-/ I was just having too much fun. ;) Had to do Jr. college to bring up the grades before moving on to University.

ATTA GIRL! I have never doubted your intellect, I'm just glad you feel good about your application of it. (And whatever the grade, if you felt good, I'd be proud.)

I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I came out of college the top female of my graduating class. Eeeeew, nerd! Still, high school was tough. I didn't have the "game" figured out and I was the child of two schoolteachers, after all.

Well done all of u but dare I say good grades at school r not the be-all.

I was a high level student at school then dropped behind because to make friends at my school u couldn't be a hard working goody-goody.

I came out with several low passes but the two important exams I passed o'level thankfully

I went gone on to qualify as a nurse  Then have a family and last year I completed a 3 year course (with distinction) in beauty therapy, hairdressing and theatrical makeup. I now run my own business in these.

Yes work hard now but if u don't do 2 well u can go on to try again or even try other things.

Good luck, u'll b fine!!!!!  ;) ;D

well... it's been a while since I was 14, but back then I was getting just passing grades.   :-/  I sorta had a habit of arguing with the teachers when I shoulda been paying attention.  And if, say, biology bored me I didn't do well in it at all.  
Do they still dissect frogs in biology class?  Ours were all stinky and wrinkled and formaldahyde squirted out when you starting cutting them.

In this grading period thingy:

Science - A-, Algebra - A, Computers - B (this was a suprise, considering I'm a computer freak ;D), History - A-/B+, Band - A, English - B-. Funny, cuz I actually was making reversed grades the previous grading period -- Bs in Science & Algebra, As in History & English. Luckily I had Careers instead of Computers -- of which the teacher I hate.

I'm happy with my grades, considering that Algebra & the English class I'm taking our 1 or 2 grades higher than that of which I'm in (I'm in 8th grade.)
